I admit ignorance with this, so bear with me. I'm trying to transfer (and play) an mp3 file from my computer (PC Windows 10) into my Pixel, but when sending to Pixel I keep getting "device has either stopped or has been disconnected: which isn't the case with the USB cable I'm using on my unlocked device. I downloaded a USB Driver Transfer app to "extract" file from computer but it tells me to keep trying. And to check external source, which I assume is the computer. All i want to do is transfer and play a damn mp3 file on my Pixel. Why so many obstacles?

 

Thanks.

I don't know what version of Android you have but after connecting the Pixel to the PC swiping the notification screen down should give an option to connect via USB. There should not be a need to download any driver.

Seconding JohnC_21's observation.  With my Galaxy S7 I had to have both Android and Windows 10 "recognize" each other as trusted devices.  When I swipe down on the main screen when the USB cable is connected there is an item shown for "Android System" that currently reads "Transferring media files via USB" (which I set up ages ago).  If I tap on that the options "Use USB for" are given as "Transferring media files," "Transferring images," "Connecting MIDI devices," and "Charging," each of which is explained in further detail beneath its entry.

BTW, my Android version is 7.0.  (I can't for the life of me recall what sweet name they used for this one.  I've hated that convention since the beginning).

Did you manage to fix it?

 

I would suggest you use Google Drive, you load the mp3 on your PC (either through Google Drive client or online) and then download it on your phone through your app.

Try using Google Drive as an intermediary. 

 

Upload the mp3 to google drive and then download it on your Pixel.
