So this is an issue that has only begun since upgrading to windows 10. When I plug my iphone 6 into my PC, iTunes will pick it up but windows seemingly doesn't recognise it as a storage device. It doesn't appear under devices and printers where I can normally see any USBs or hardrives and such. It used to always be there on previous windows versions and thats how I would transfer videos/photos from my phone to PC.
So now when I first plugged the phone in I got the message saying it was installing the device:
It sat at that point for over an hour and clearly wasn't doing anything. I eventually canceled it .. any time it is connected now, in devices and printers it shows up as:
So I'm not really sure what I can do.
I only just formatted windows 10 as I was having all sorts of other issues. This was happening before except it got past this stage and the iphone appeared in device manager but needed a driver update and that driver update wouldn't work without a MTP Device USB which was missing from my PC. I searched all over online trying to figure out where I can download this. The only links which were official microsoft downloads which supposedly contained it did not work when I installed them. But I haven't got to that stage since the format Now it just refuses to accept that an iphone is even attached .. yet itunes picks it up no problems.
So I have no idea what to do. I have seen some people have success with various methods in threads on other forums yet when I've tried the same things it doesn't work. Never had so much trouble with a new version of windows before. Anyone have any ideas or experienced similar?
