I'm having trouble connecting my phone (Xperia Z3 Compact) to the computer for data transfer. I also have a Nexus 7, which works fine, so I'm trying to work out the difference.
Both are on Android 6 Marshmallow, and new in this version, you have to select MTP transfer every time it is plugged in. I am doing this.
If I plug the Nexus 7 in, a file explorer window opens up automatically. If I type mtp-detect I get masses of information back about the device.
If I plug the Xperia in, nothing happens on the laptop. If I type mtp-detect, I get:
Code: Select all
Unable to open ~/.mtpz-data for reading, MTPZ disabled.libmtp version: 1.1.6 Listing raw device(s) No raw devices found.
