    Your device is being mistakenly recognized as a phone...

    Use this tool: View any installed/connected USB device on your system Right click the .exe and Run as Administrator

    Search your USB drivers and remove any that seem like they attach to the camera. You may have to examine the Last Plug/Unplug dates to help you decide.

    Once you purge the drivers, then plug back in and let the drivers add a fresh copy and stay away from the phone companion deal. Just use File Explorer.

    Open Settings > in the search box type "autoplay" > click the "autoplay settings" result > scroll the lists and find the device > set the default for "take no action"

    Let me know if that makes a difference.
