I use a RedMi 3S (Android 6.0.1), non-rooted and fully updated.
I have a large number of photographs in my DCIM/Camera folder (in my "Internal Storage"). They're visible via the Gallery app, File Manager, and even visible and accessible via an SFTP server that I set up on the phone.
However, if I connect the phone to a PC with a USB cable, and choose either PTP or MTP (Files or Photos respectively) - I don't see these photos. I do see the
DCIM/ folder, and one of the other subfolders there (named
DCIM/Camera is suspiciously missing.
Why is this happening and how can I transfer my photos over USB?
- Unlike the highly related question, the issue here is not the out-of-date media manager database; I just performed a "rescan", and it didn't change anything.
