I have a windows 7 pc and a Sony Experia Z android phone. I use a downloader app to download files to the phone, and then hook it up to USB to copy to the computer.
The only problem is sometimes the files+folders do not show. I moved the download folder into DCIM folder (the camera pictures folder, which is always visible), and now the FOLDER appears, but all the files inside it are hidden. How can I get windows to show ABSOLUTELY EVERY file and folder on the phone?
Things I have tried:
- USB Debugging mode.
- A different browser on the windows operating system (Total Commander - Same problem, empty folder)
- Windows explorer settings are set to show all files, folders and hidden system files.
- Resetting the phone
Can someone answer this? I really need a totally working solution. One time I turned on USB debugging and it worked, but today it has not. I need a 100% solution as this is the only way I can download large files from the internet.
I have no router, no 3rd party internet provider and no wifi. I dont know what the android version is, it is just the default one the "Sony xperia Z" came with, and I cannot update the android version, because I dont have wi-fi.
