COME ON LENOVO, SURELY THIS CAN'T BE BEYOND YOUR CAPABILITIES?

 

Like most others on this thread, I can't download photos fom my phone to my laptop which is really frustrating. Plugging in the USB cable just charges the phone, and sliding down the notification bar doesn't give me any alternative options. My phone is a Moto G5 without an SD card, and I've tried 3 different USB leads in both USB ports on the laptop. Perhaps I'm missing something simple but I've been trying for several hours without success. I'm on the point of giving up with Lenovo and maybe even going down the Apple route. My wife's iphone transfers photos, files and everything to her other Apple devices automatically.

 

Any suggestions, either for fixing this simple problem or for another phone?

Hi, it's weird but try connecting your laptop with your phone with original Lenovo USB charging cable. Then you'll get options to connect/charge on your phone's notofication screen.

Anyway, you won't be able to map your phone as a logical disk. It doesn't work for phone's external microSD card either.

When connected by USB cable;

 

Settings/ connected devices/USB/transfer files
