I was trying to edit one of my sound files on my phone in audacity eariler today, when I discovered that the files held "0 bytes" and were inaccessible by any players on hand.
- LG G3 does not charge using stock charger
- Windows 10's windows media player fails to play MP3s
- MP3s are playable using stock android player
- Windows explorer shows problem files as "0 bytes"
- MP3s are stored on SD Card
- Restarting phone/PC
- Replacing USB cable
- Cable from Amazon Fire tablet opens on windows but no consistent MP3 file access
- Switching PCs
- Cleaning Parts
- Removing and reinserting SD card
- Using VLC to play files
- Using Audacity to play files
- Moving/Copying files to desktop
- Uninstalling/Reinstalling Android driver
- Enabling USB Debugging
EDIT 4/29/2016: Tried using Windows 8.1 and a Chromebook, but former came up as zero and no Internal/SD card detected on the latter.
EDIT 5/2/2016: Just realized that the problem MP3s are also listed as "Size: Unknown" in the default android music app. However, they still play normally.
