    Does it show up in Device Manager (Windows) or in lsusb (Linux)? (See this for Mac.) – Matthew Read May 20 '16 at 4:31

My moto g3 had similar problem. After connecting the USB cable the device would appear within windows explorer but no file structure would appear. This is because the phone was in USB charge only mode. I double tap the very top status bar and a USB notification appears as shown below. USB for file transfer

After selecting the USB for file transfer notification the following display appears: USB for file transfer

Select the MTP protocol (or PTP) and you should see the media of the phone appear in the explorer window.

Every time the phone is connected to USB it will default to charging mode.

I hope this was a useful tip!

  • This is a good tip, but the questioner said his phone doesn't show the notification when connected, so it's unlikely to be the issue here. I'm sure some other visitors will find it helpful, though. Welcome to our community! – Dan Hulme Jun 23 '16 at 14:50
