No Android Devices Found?

There are a few reasons why you might be getting an error message when trying to get files onto your Android device. Following are some options for you to solve these problems.

1 Check USB cable.

Some data lines are just charging cable, having no ability to transfer data.

2 Replug to check the wire the device are attached properly.

Reconnect the device to check the USB ports.

3 Try another USB interface.

Power supply shortage of the USB port may lead to the unrecognized connection.

4 Try another data line.

A bad USB component may cause errors such as "unrecognized USB device".

5 Change the USB connection options.

The default option may be "charging". The issue can be solved by changing the mode to "mass storage". Different devices have different options. I choose two popular mobiles to show how to changing the connection modes.
