Hello Everyone, i have a few pictures on my tracfone model lg420 all usb drives work, but when i plug in the wire with the usb on one end into the computer usb port and the cell phone plug on the other end, it does not show up anywhere, am i using the wrong type of wire for this? Thanks
Those USB cables are for charging and data transfer. You really should try using another USB cable. Depending on the phone model, when you connect it to a PC you may need to select from the phone if you want to only charge or you would like to do data transfer. Please check if something like this appears.
Check if the phone appears in Device Manager, under USB devices. If it is not listed there, the drivers were not installed and you may need to do it manually. Check the manufacturer’s page for the drivers and try to install them manually.
Please have in mind that there may be compatibility issues with some Windows versions.
Help F I really appreciate you going into this so deeply for me, i did need to install the driver from your link and it installed successfully. but it is still not showing up in disk management or computer properties. so what do you think i should maybe get another usb cable and see if it works then? i do notice that this usb i do have does charge the phone but that is all. please let me know and Thank You Again.
