Just go to settings, storage. Here on the righthand side top corner you will find a small usb icon, touch on that to get your usb options again. Click the first option and your phone will be recognasied as USB again.
Hope this helps :-)

Do you think this is update for Android kitkat? But when I click on "Check Update" it said that my system is up to date, why?
Ir. Naqif, 01 Oct 2014Android kitkat for zenfone 5 has release or not?No, not yet.
Only some territories for Zenfone 4 and 6.
For Zenfone 5 only LTE version has "official" release of Kitkat.
The one I am playing with is not on any site, and I am not sure if this will be final version released for it. Likely not.

If course it won't be mentioned even when there are improvements.
I have 4.4.2 on Zenfone 5 loaded, and one of the others on 4.3 pulled them off the charger at the same time, and they are both idle - 2 SIMs each, identical telecoms, sitting one next to the other, 3G on, no calls, several email addresses (same ones) and same apps sync enabled.
At this moment, the JB has 88% battery and 92% on KitKat.
But this is not a scientific experiment and there could be other things affecting this.
Lili, 01 Oct 2014Can anyone help me plss why cant i connect to wifiYou change names very often…
See the answer to your entry under "Jane"
Jane, 01 Oct 2014I got my z5 yesterday and yeah it has a heating problem but not that much
I just have a probl... moreTry to "forget" the network first.
Sometimes on cheap routers, you need to reset the router before it accepts the new device.
Sometimes that also happens because devices have a long lease period of DHCP assigned IP address, and you have high frequency of changes.
Try to turn the wifi off and on in the phone settings as well, or choose manual settings.
I remember that one of the updates had wifi issues, and the next one resolved them, but my memory today is very lousy, can't remember which it was.
Please install 1.18.40 complete firmware, and let me know if it still does not work.
PS: does it work with any other wifi? Like if you have another phone that can share internet connection via Wifi - can you connect to that? So does it work with some but not others, or it works with none?
If with none, there could be hardware fault or software fault.
Hardware can't do anything. Software - load full last version of firmware and do a factory reset to wipe everything that could be blocking it.
