    It was working fine just a few weeks ago. But today when i plugged my android phone into my computer, my computer detects my phone. However when I tried to open either the Phone or Card storage, it auto closes all windows file browser.

    I've asked in a few forums and no one has an answer.

    I've tried many ways but still doesn't the problem!! I've tried on different phones & devices (Samsung Note 2, Galaxy Tab and Note 4), different USB cables, and different USB ports. I've make sure my devices is logged in when I plug into my computer. I've tried enabling and disabling USB debugging. I've make sure MTP is selected. But the problem still persists.

    Please help... I believe the problem lies on my computer and not my phones. i could still plug in a Portable Harddisk in the same port and able to browse the files in it without any problem!

    Hi there, I actually had a similar problem. First of all, when you plug your phone it does it (on your phone) ask if you want to plug it in as a media device, camera, just to charge, etc?

    Hi curegirl. Thank you for your reply!

    Ok first of all when I plugged my phone in, (on my phone) it doesn't ask if i want to plug it in as a media device, camera, or just to charge.

    What happen is that when i plug my phone in, my computer immeditaly detects my phone, but when i tried to open either the Phone or Card storage, the window simply closes.

    What i could see on my phone after plugging in, is that on the notification panel, it shows "Connected as Media Device".

    Also, like i've mentioned, this problem happens on all my android devices :(

    Please, i hope u or anyone has a solution for it.
