Before the KitKat update from Verizon (I updated on May 6th), I was able to connect my phone to my computer (both MAC and PC) via the USB cable (an old Motorola USB one). It would both charge and allow me to use it as a media device and jump drive.
On the MAC, using Android File Transfer (AFT), it would connect as an Installer and then switch to Media MTP. AFT would automatically kick in after a few seconds.
On the PC, it would just show up as a removable device. I could switch files and pictures, music, etc.
Since the update, when plugged into either computer, it ONLY charges the phone. I can't access files of any kind, and there is no drop down menu from the task bar at the top, whereby I can choose what happens when I connect the USB. It only charges it.
I changed cables, changed connection ports, debugging on, debugging off, rebooted, connected in safe mode. NOTHING WORKS.
Help! Any ideas out there?
