The above issue reffers to PC desktop Xperia Companion not recognising Xperia XZ when connected.

Thanks, @Omegaman.

 

This could be a driver issue, I suggest the following.

 

1. Uninstall Xperia Companion

2. Restart your handset and PC

3. Reinstall Xperia Companion

4. Plug the handset back in via USB

 

Let me know if the above has been helpful.
