    Hi, on the phone, you need to pull down the notifications and set the USB mode from charging to data transfer.

    MTP mode essentially doesn't need any drivers. Can you tell which version of windows are you using? It can have some issues with XP, but should be good with new versions.

    Strange. The device does not show in the PC at all? Does it make the USB connect sound? Please check the Windows Device Manager to confirm.

    MTP requires some additional media player components in Windows N versions. Please check:

    (And USB debugging must not be enabled on the phone).

    - and never install 'drivers' from dubious websites.
