Hi Ricomah,


Appreciate the things you've tried. Have you tried using another USB transfer cable? You may try manually enabling the USB debugging and select MTP (Transfer File) by enabling the developer options. Here's the link how to. 


Hope that helps. Thanks!


Best regards,

Try to change a USB cable. It seems that your USB cable is damaged, so your phone cannot be recognized normally. If the problem hasn't been resolved after changing the USB cable. You can also use  other methods, such as Google Drive.
