  • "tried the most of the method to connect" What exactly have you tried? There's no point people suggesting things you've already tried, so please edit your question so people don't waste their time this way. – Dan Hulme Apr 21 '17 at 9:12

Try this. First turn on developer options. To do this open settings and locate the 'about phone' and tap this then scroll to build and tap this 7 times then click the back button and go back to settings. With your phone connected to the computer locate 'Developer options' and tap it. From here scroll down to 'Select USB Configuration' and tap it. Tap 'MTP(Media Transfer Protocol)' even though it may already be selected. This should automatically open the dialog box on the computer with the phone's drive listed.

  • This is not working ... – Pranav MS Apr 21 '17 at 9:19
  • Sorry I missed a step but I just updated it. – Doug Ibrahim Apr 28 '17 at 8:59

Do you have drivers installed? Check for MTP USB drivers. Also you may need to have a look here

As your phone only shows photo, it's because the USB settings is set to PTP.

To see phone content on PC, pull down notification bar on phone when phone is connected and switch from PTP to MTP mode.

  • Thanks i have tried this also but it is not getting connected – Pranav MS Oct 17 '16 at 6:09
  • what happens when you plug the USB cable? what operating system is your PC running? If Windows, open the device manager and see if there are devices that need drivers – esQmo_ Oct 17 '16 at 8:12
  • or you may check your USB cable if it is damaged or check the USB charging port for dust or something – esQmo_ Oct 17 '16 at 8:16
