.............as the title says......Cannot get my S4 to be recognized as Media Device when I plug into USB on PC. It only charges the phone. Anyone else experiencing this? Any help?

I have a Samsung Galaxy S3 SGH-T999 (running 4.3) that I have been using with Windows 7, XP, and Vista machines as a "media device" without Kies; I simply plug it in and use it as a drive. When plugged in to those machines, the phone says "connected as media device"...
I recently replaced the 7 machine (Dell Optiplex 745) with a brand new Dell XPS8700 with Windows 8.1.
I have tried my best to get my device recognized as a drive and not a media player or music device but after allowing usb debugging and developer option on...it continues to only be recognized as a media player device with no drive letter ( ).....
Does anyone know what else to do without rooting?
I seem lost with the rooting and unrooting with no promises that my device won't become a Brick!
