Mounting MicroSD / Connecting Z2 via USB

Hi Everyone,

 

I'm struggling to connect my phone to my Laptop via the USB Cable (Mount SD).

 

The phone recognises the 64Gb Card as I have music and a few films but unlike my old X10i I cannot seem to Mount the SD.

Under Storage in Settings the Mount SD is greyed out?

 

The Computer recognises something being plugged in as I can hear the USB Sound, but that's about it?

 

So either way, I cannot see my phone on my Laptop?

 

 

Any idea's?

Go to settings > Xperia connectivity > USB connectivity > USB connection mode > MTP and try again

Thanks for your help.

 

That MTP doesn't seem to want to connect however MSC mode does?

 

Is that right?

Re: Mounting MicroSD / Connecting Z2 via USB

SD card may be faulty as well... As linux can somehow read the sd card, windows wouldn't read it - had that problem with samsung's SDHC 16GB..  Switching to another (new) card solved the problem.
