Unable to transfer files from phone to PC

I need help with using my phone's "mass storage" feature so I can transfer files from phone to computer

When I plug in USB, my phone immediately switches to charging and I don't see any notifications, no prompts, and can't see device on the computer.

I don't see USB connection Notification when I swipe the window shade.

Under Settings->Applications->Development, USB Debugging is Unchecked.

Under Settings->Connectivity, Default connection mode is "Mass Storage" and Always ask is Checked.

I know the USB port is working fine as I have used other devices on it.

Phone is LG Revolution, Android version is 2.3.6. PC is Windows Vista.

Thanks for any help you can offer.

I know that saving the info on your device to your PC is very important! Let's see what we can do to get this up and running for you!

Re: Need help with USB connection


Sorry for the delay i responding, I've been very busy at work.

I downloaded and installed the drivers, same for the LG Mobile Support Tool.

I was prompted to connect my phone, which i did using the USB connector. The phone shows it as charging.

I see the "Start Updating" button but the message shows my device is disconnected and to connect. 

Any insight would be great.
