Re: No phone detection when I connect Xperia X Compact to Computer

Hi, I am having the same issue. My Xperia X F5121 is charging after connecting to a computer, but I cannot transfer files. I was able to do it just a week ago, before the last system update 34.4.A.2.85. 

 

My storage is almost full, any help and ideas will be much appreciated!

I have exactly the same problem. Can't transfer files (no popup on the phone after recent updates) and phone also seems to charge slower than usual. Sony  please do help.

Seriously Sony, Im still experiencing this very frustrating problem as well and was committed to the Xperia phones prior to this issue (have had two Xperias for over 3 years)  Considering Sony's complete disregard for customer support and such a frustrating problem I plan to steer clear of Sony phones going forward.

Today I noticed that transfer works using USB 2.0 connection.

I am experiencing it too, and Sony Support did not help. I did everything said in this forum and by the tech, but the phone will not recognize a computer. Please Sony, push an update to fix this.

My usb c cable often has the same problem.

I found out that unplugging the connector, turning it 180 degrees and plugging it in solved the problem (I have a non Sony usb cable)

Re: No phone detection when I connect Xperia X Compact to Computer

That is tantalizingly easy but unfortunately doesn't work for me.

I talked to Sony on the phone today. They said the only option left is I can pay $50-$150 and ship them my phone for repair.

I would be without the phone for 4 weeks.

Sad to say I'm so phone dependent--aren't all of us on this forum?--that I can't be without my smart phone for 4 weeks. I need it for work. I'll try to find one to borrow and put my sim card in but still a pain to get work software installed, etc.

Not impressed with Sony.
