Why Can't My Note 4 Download Pictures To my PC?

When trying to download pics I get a message there's nothing there, when I can see the photo's. I followed the SM-N90V > Card >

but it states "this folder is empty". When I go into my computer's photo gallery and try to import it says there's no photos or videos found on this device, but I have hundreds on my phone. Please advise, I've run out of space!  Thank you!

When you pull down the notification shade and tap where it says USB Charging, change it to File Transfer rather than Photo Transfer and see if that makes a difference.

Did you swipe down the phone's notification shade and change the USB connection type from charging only to File Transfer?

Hi Ann,

I get a message that's" there's nothing to import." For some reason it's not seeing everything.

That sounds like a message you get on the PC and not the phone. The default USB connection mode is charging only. You have to manually change it on the phone itself so it knows you want to access the phone contents on the computer.

Great, how do you do that?  I pull down the top bar and click on "photo Transfer" but I receive the error message perviously mentioned.

LINHAY31,


Oh my! I would be lost without my email coming through. Let’s find a resolution for you as quick as possible. Has there been any changes to your phone since the 17th? (Such as any new apps downloaded or a software update?) Please click here http://vz.to/2j5qqmt to follow the steps on how to clear the gmail app. Once that is done, please send an email to yourself to test the results.
