Default MMI to USB adapter for Samsung Galaxy

I'm not getting much of a response in the D4 forum, so I hope you don't mind me asking here.

I'm making a switch from iPhone to the new Samsung Galaxy S4. Does anyone know of any MMI to micro USB adapter that is known to be compatible with the latest MMI and Samsung Galaxy line? Looking through listings on Amazon, it seems as if many cables are not compatible with one or both.

Does the Samsung act as mass storage device when connected to USB? Can you browse you files when you plug it in to the computer? If so then any of the $15 China MMI cables should work. If have one of those to connect my 1.8" USB HDD and it works just fine.

Don't know as I don't have my S4 yet. Can anyone with Galaxy S3 or Note chime in. I'm pretty sure they'll all be pretty similar.

The SIII does not have mass storage on USB, I would assume the S4 will be the same.

If so, it appears the only audio options with the Samsung will be analog from the headphone jack with an AMI/audio jack cable (no MMI control or display) or Bluetooth audio streaming (limited MMI control and display).
