  3. A device attached to system is not functioning

    Hi,

    I understand how it feels when you have more programs installed and to go with the option like the above to fix the issue but as an alternative, I would suggest you try the below to see if it fixes the issue without losing installed programs and your data.

    Step 1:

    On the login screen click on Power icon on the right corner

    Step 2:

    Press Shift Key and press hold and then click Restart (This will restart the system in recovery mode)

    Step 3:

    In the recovery bluescreen options you’ll need to click (or tap) the Troubleshoot option

    Step 4:

    Then click on Advanced Options

    Step 5;

    Select Startup Repair

    Let me know the status after performing the above and if in case it doesn't help will provide you with further steps to resolve the issue.

    Regards

    Device attached to the system is not functioning (photo transfer)

    I have a new Samsung Galaxy A71. I attached it to my computer by USB and it pulls up the phone on the computer. However, when I attempt to transfer any photos I receive the following error:

    Device attached to the system is not functioning

    I have rebooted my system, all of my updates appear to be installed, ran a system check and still I cannot resolve this issue.

    Samsung tells me that since my phone can be found on the system, it is a Windows issue for the transfer. Any suggestions. Thank you.
