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?

since windows xp is old and many android phones were launched much later than windows xp so you can either look for drivers on internet or upgrade your windows to connect the android.
There are no apt. Drivers available if you can find please let me know...


Windows XP is the most stable windows ever... I don't want to upgrade...

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.
