The Samsung Galaxy A9 is a new device that needs USB Drivers running on the computer so it can transfer files just like any other device in the Samsung range. The USB Drivers act as a bridge between your Samsung Galaxy A9 smartphone and the computer, allowing for stable communication between the two.
With the USB Drivers set up properly on your computer, it makes it easy to transfer photos, videos, audio files, stock ROMs, MP3 files, phone contacts and anything via the Odin flashing tool. You might know the Odin flashing tool already from the many guides here on dotTech where we use the app to flash custom kernels, install custom recoveries and root Samsung devices. The same file sharing rules apply where we need to upload a file using the Odin flash tool and share it on to the Samsung Galaxy A9 smartphone for it to do the job.
These are the instructions to download Samsung Galaxy A9 USB Drivers for Windows PCs:
DOWNLOAD AND INSTALL THE SAMSUNG GALAXY A9 USB DRIVERS FOR WINDOWS PC
- Download the Samsung USB Drivers for the Samsung Galaxy A9 smartphone from this link directly to your Windows computer.

- Double-click on the executable (.exe) file that is now on your desktop after you extracted the file.
- Click the ‘Next’ button.
- Click the ‘Next’ button once again.

In conclusion, that’s all you need to have the Samsung drivers running for the Samsung Galaxy A9 smartphone. You should have no worries connecting the A9 handset to the computer with the USB cable and using programs like the Odin flashing tool.
Anyone who needs troubleshooting tips should try closing and opening your applications on the computer if you had them already opened before starting the driver installation. Further, some devices might require you to fully restart the computer before the drivers start working for you.
An alternative method you can try of the link found in the guide is not working during your time of visit is the Universal ADB Driver by Koushik Dutta — the founder of ClockworkMod Recovery, an ex Cyanogen team member and talented developer. Unpack the Universal ADB Driver much the same way as you did the official driver above. Just extract the file to the desktop and then follow the on-screen instructions to get your ADB Driver working with your device.
