Galaxy S5_Transfer files between S5 and PC Windows 10 Reward $2
Created by rangnguyen, 594 days ago, 3358 views

I have Samsung Galaxy S5, USB Cord supplied by Samsung and PC Windows 10. Once I could see content of S5. After a recent system update of Samsung, I find out that I cannot see the content of S5 anymore. My Computer of PC sees S5 but not the content inside S5.

Using another way, I download Smart Switch, a Samsung software helping to transfer Files between PC and S5. This software tries to connect 5, but says that I have to unlock S5. I think the word 'Unlock' here is a kind of unlocking device if I use password,...; however I never lock my S5.

Do you know why I cannot see the content of my S5 anymore ?

My Smartphone is Galaxy S5.

However, I follow and look at the step Step 1.1 – just happened to me on stock Android Marshmallow 6.0 :

- Detach USB cable from device
- Enable Developer Mode by going to Settings > About Phone (at the very bottom usually) > press on Build Number repeatedly until the pop-up appears
- Go to Settings > Developer Options
- Enable USB debugging
- Lock device (turn screen off)
- Connect your phone to your computer using a USB cable
- Unlock your Android device
- Swipe down to see notifications and press on “USB for charging”

After this I lock_unlock my Android device and turn off "USB debugging" - restart and I can see my content as before.

It has something to do with Debugging.

Superb !

Thanks a million and have a good day.

You may use an android assistant, you can transfer or backup text messages, contacts, photos, and other  media files like videos, music files.
And which allows you to view them on PC, so you can choose selectively and freely.

For example ,
