    My PC will not recognize my phone when I connect it to the PC. As a test I tried connecting my external HDD and my PC did recognize that. When I plug in phone I get the little tones that indicate it should be connected but my phone doesn't show up. I turned my PC off and then back on to see if that would fix the problem, but it didn't. I've connected my phone to my PC many times and this problem has never popped up. Any help greatly appreciated.

    My PC is an HP Pavilion 570-pOxx. My phone is a Samsung Galaxy S9.
