Question Htc connected as a "media device"

Hello everyone,

First of all, I'm sorry for my low level of english, I'll try to explain my problem correctly

I have an Htc One Mini 2 since few days and when I connect the phone on my computer, it's recognize as a "media device" and not as a USB storage. So, I can't transfert files, create folders etc.

I'll try to solve that by activating the debugging mode and updating my drivers but it doesn't work

Do you know how to proceed?

Thank you for your help

first thing to do is go to your device manager and see if you have any device to be installed. You should have "Android USB Devices">"My HTC"

Are you in windows, Mac or Linux?

Most android phones are connected as a "Media Device". Mostly because they use the MTP protocol. You can transfer files, I transfer them all the time. The phone will show up as "HTC One Mini 2" as a media device, open it up and you should be good to go
