This tools create a self-signed inf for this specific device, using ephemeral keys, added to the trusted certificate store (for this only device / inf), ...

Try the 15-seconds ADB/drivers all-in-one installer. You could also install the Samsung drivers rather than conventional OnePlus drivers. I installed these drivers and I've had mine working since the upgrade. You could also try following this guide on how to set it up.

But, there are two solutions: Root phone and get a "Mass Storage" enabler application that will work on your phone. Without rooting phone: as long as both the computer are on ...

I found the solution myself: Windows 10 somehow does not want to install the driver, as it can not verify the manufacturer. So the driver from Sony Developer's site works just fine. After deactivating the Windows driver signature check everything works fine. To deactivate proceed like this: (taken from HERE) Press Win + X then U then Shift + R ...

The problem is that you're missing the adb recovery driver. You might consider trying Koush's universal USB driver installer -- it solved this very problem by installing the missing drivers.

My method is based on the answer suggesting WebDAV. It could be replicated by an FTP, Samba or other networked file server. Essentially you start a WebDAV server on your android device, and mount it as a network drive. Your phone's IP must be visible to the computer you want to browse the files on. Generally this means you must be on the same local ...

Your phone is showing you the total amount of storage inside your device. This includes a bunch of partitions containing the operating system, radio image, preloaded apps, bootloader, recovery, etc. These partitions are read-only, and many aren't even accessible within the Android OS, so they aren't exposed when connected to Windows—there wouldn't be any ...

Actually Windows Experience Feature is the answer!

You (or someone else) probably accidentally click this banner on the main screen. And "Accept" the offer. (Note: this dialog may also pop-up on reboot) - OR - Avast pushed the installation silently (which I still doubt since it didn't happen on my case). Avast gets the Google accounts saved on the Chrome, and it's possible for them to offer ...

Okay I finally found something which helped me. The Media Feature Pack for Windows 10 N & KN (all editions) alias KB-3010081 is for the first version of Windows 10. But for the Windows 10 with the big update we had a few time ago, there is an update which supersedes the KB-3010081. This is the KB-3099229 : https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/...

If you are using Windows, USB should be your best bet. But several distros of Linux doesn't support MTP protocol (ICS and above) and hence, you can't mount your Android to those computers. There are a number of methods which you can use for wireless file transfers. My favorites: Install Airdroid- This is a very simple app which converts your device into a ...

While playing around with the INF files, I found that the one supplied by Sony actually does work, you only need to "force" Windows to use it for your device. I am not sure if that has anything to do with the unsigned nature of the driver or that Windows cannot verify that the driver is compatible (see below), but it simply doesn't seem to accept the driver ...

I don't know about Windows, but on Ubuntu Linux this is easily scripted using the photo management app Digikam. Digikam can be configured to recognize the device and automatically download the pictures. You just plug in the phone and it starts automatically, no need to do anything with the computer or the phone.

I cannot answer the Windows part – but the Ubuntu part I can answer for sure, as I'm using that as well and mount my devices from my computer, sometimes with full r/w access. What I use needs ADB tools to be installed on your computer. If you didn't already install them, see e.g. Is there a minimal installation of ADB? Prepare your Droid First a basic ...
