    My UMI eMAX phone has always connected to my Pc OK & given access to all files, mostly stored on SD card.
    Yesterday it connected OK, folders showed up but were empty. Checked folders using phones explorer & they are still there. Put SD directly into PC & no problems.
    This is what I have tried so far without success.
    Different cables.
    Updated driver on PC (it was already up to date).
    Connected phone to a laptop, same problem.
    USB setting is on MTP, changed it to charge & the put back to MTP.
    Cleared apps cache.
    Now here is the odd thing. I took some photos, connected to PC & the new pics showed up but the 1000+ old ones that are on the SD card did not.
    Any thoughts please?

    Cooking update. Two chicken and mushroom pies for the freezer and smoked haddock with tomatoes & shallots tonight.
    Phone update . Found another brain cell & recalled an error message when I last put the SD into the PC. Scanned and fixed whatever the problem was. Back in business..
    You might be able to assist with this. I was thinking that this phone which is on Android 4.4.4 needed replacing, any suggestions? Similar to this but more up to date. ie. mid range phone.
