The Mac or Windows computer can’t recognize all new hardware that we connect to it, that’s why we need a driver which is a software that served to introduce the new hardware to our computer. So, if you want the computer to communicate with your LG G3 via USB 3.0 or 2.0 slot, then you need the USB drivers, of course, you’ll also need a USB cable to connect both of them. Without it, you will get a “USB device not recognized” pop-up message.
When we connect the phone to the computer, depending on variants of our phone, we will get options like Media Sync (MTP), USB storage, Ethernet or USB Mass Storage Mode. We can do a lot of things once connected, such as media sync, transfer files, tethering, rooting up to return the phone back to stock condition. It could be said that the LG G3 USB drivers installer is must-have software for every G3 owner, especially if you like flashing ROMs or mods.
There are several ways to install USB drivers for the LG G3 on Windows or Mac OS X computer, the first is to use the LG PC Suite, which is a desktop software made for hassle-free multimedia content management between the phone and the PC. However, not all models supported by PC suite and the file size is large enough. There is also a solution for those who just need the drivers without sync feature, LG also provides a standalone USB driver installer that support all the LG G3 variants: T-Mobile (D851), AT&T (D850), Verizon (VS985), Sprint (LS990) and much more.
