I can connect a thumb drive to my Note10+ using the same USB cable I tried to connect to the PC with, and browse the thumb drive files.
And of course, I can connect my thumb drive to the PC and other devices, but not the phone. Tried all USB ports on the PC. Even opened a thread here:
Thanks so much for any help you can provide.
In the mean time, I need to find a different PC and another USB cable, even though the same cable works if I connect the thumb drive to the phone.
When I connect the Note 10 to the PC, I get a silent notification: "Charging connected device via USB" and when I click on it, there’s two menus with radio buttons.
First menu: "USB Controlled by:"
1) USB Controlled by Connected Device <–this one is selected
2) This Phone.
The second menu: "The USB is for:"
1) Transferring Files Android / Auto <— this one is selected but the entire menu is greyed out because it’s controlled by a setting in dev. options
2) USB Tethering
4) Transferring Images
5) Charging Phone only
