Hello there,

Since a few weeks I have being noticing that when I connect my phone to the pc with the cable it does connect he phone as it shows it is charging but it doesn't connect it "completely" as I can't the phone between the devices. Due to this I can't transfer any imagines and music from one to another. What kind of problem can It be? ??

If you plug in another USB device, such as a USB printer, a USB camera, a USB flash drive, a USB external hard drive, etc., does it work fine on the laptop?If you plug this phone to another computer, does it work or not?Please let me know. Thank you.
