    Hi,
    I installed Android File Transfer on my MacBook Pro. The first time I used it, I was able to transfer some files but I kept getting this window saying, "

    Can’t access device storage
    If your device’s screen is locked, disconnect its usb cable, unlock your screen, and then reconnect the usb cable."

    Since then, I just get the message.

    Any ideas?

    Connect the phone to your Mac and once connected pull down the notification. You should have a series of choices on how you want to handle your USB connection.
