Hello.
I have a new Moto G Power android phone.
When connected to windows ten thru usb cable it recognizes phone name but shows as empty.
No files in folder.
Picture import search comes up as empty as well.
Am enclosing screenshots.
Phone is charging.

thanks in advance for all help!

I can't speak to your particular phone, but....
On my Moto G8 plus..... I simply pull down the notification screen to expose USB Preferences (tap for more options) and select "File Transfer"

Thanks so much Trouble!​

Took me a bit to find usb preferences, but once I did it fixed my problem.
Mine was set to "no data transfer" by default.

Merry Christ-mas to you!

It is gratifying when an ackowledment is fedback, however brief. So often new members post a single problem, which is dealt with - and that is , from time to time, the last time we see the op
From me , also, Cedar, thankyou.
