Z5 Dual unable to connect to computer

Hi,

 

I have a Z5 Dual (E6683) and I can't get it to connect with my PC. When I plug in the USB it doesn't show up as an MTP and when I try to connect the PC companion it doesn't show up as an Xperia phone. Basically I can't even get to step 1 of connecting as a USB device.

 

I have already checked on multiple computers, different USB connectors, different USB ports...

 

Any ideas?

 

Thanks

 

Alex

Re: Z5 Dual unable to connect to computer

On Notifications seek

'USB for file transfer'

Then select 'Transfer Files (MTP)

 

That should work

 

That said even  a simple  connection via a cable should as a basic service show 

Xperia Z5 compact on your   PC Drives' screen

 

 

If that doesnot show -sorry cannot help

Thanks for the reply. I am afraid there is no such setting on Android 6.0
