The USB cable is just a neans to connunicate between different hardware. In certain instances, it also doubles as a power cord.
Windows needs a driver for your cellular phone, not for the cable. Windows detects the phone at the other end of the USB cable but it does not know how to communicate with it. That is why it needs a driver (a set of instructions, protocols, let just say an interpreter) between it and the phone.
Download the driver for your phone from Samsung Website, and install it in your computer. Next time you connect it Windows will know how to interact with your phone.
Hope it clarifies things.

Hey i'm sure you got a cd with in the box right?
First install the cd. This will allow your computer to recognize your phone and start any basic transfer.
(Now there's a extremely tiny chance that you haven't gotten the cd. If that's the case go to the store where you purchased your phone and tell them you din't get the cd and fill in a complaint. Just make sure at the end of the day you hav a cd.)
Once the cd has been installled then plug your phone wit the aid of the usb cable to your computer. It's fairly simple after that, you can always use the help option which will tell you how to transfer music/videos/images etc. Of course if you're feeling lazy to search through help you can always ask me and i'd be happy to help.
Lemme know if this was useful and if you have any other problems.
