    Best advice, try it and post back if it works.

    I plugged my Samsung into an old XP computer not connected to the internet and it was recognized as an MTP device. I could see the folders but I saw nothing in the folders. When I opened DCIM then camera, I saw no pictures.

    Since I have no need to connect my phone to an old XP computer (we have four working Win 7 computers in the house), I'm not going to spend time looking for the problem.

    I have a flash drive where one side is a micro USB port and the other is a USB port.

    You might see if something like that works.

    If I have time later today, I'll see if that works.

    I plugged my dual connector USB drive into my phone. It is recognized but the only option I have is to move media files to the device. Since I don't have any media files, that didn't help.
    I created a folder for pictures but I saw no way to move or copy my pictures to the USB stick.

    Doesn't android use Google Drive/Photos? If so couldn't you just move to the cloud then use a browser on the XP to transfer?

    I have an android phone (HTC) and regularly transfer pictures from it to my XP desktop. I think you select to have the phone recognized as a drive when prompted. Then you can see the files and drag them over to your target drive on the computer. I think HTC installed software that may enable this operation. Other phones likely offer similar software.
