There are oodles of reasons why people who own mobile smartphones such as the Sony Xperia E5 would want to connect it to a computer with the USB cable. Many people want to transfer data like pictures, music and video footage from the phone to the computer or the other way around. There are also more advanced reasons for wanting to connect to a computer like using flashing tool to flash firmware updates and so forth.
If the computer you are wishing to connect the USB cable to is running on a version of the Windows operating system, then it needs to have USB Drivers installed on it before any of things I mentioned above can happen. There is no data transferring from the mobile to the computer without the correct USB Drivers installed, and there is no app running on the computer that is able to detect your device and allow for things like flashing firmware without those Drivers either.
Many people don’t ever need to worry about installing the USB Drivers because the Windows operating system has been programmed to try looking after that for you by downloading them after it identifies what your device is. It is these times when the operating system is unable to understand what your device is that you need to give it then a helping hand by installing the right Drivers manually.
