    Hi Welcome to Windows Central! I know nothing about Phones. Here's what I found with a search when File Explorer doesn't recognize your phone. If you need more help, please join the forum.

    WP may not be seen if you are on Windows XP since the drivers for it are difficult to install.

    With Windows 7>8.1 you may need to download and install this:

    For Windows 10 the phone companion app is included.

    Your phone should appear in the Explorer dropdown with the proper USB drivers installed under Win7 thru Win10.

    As mentioned above we encourage you to join so we can look at your problems a little more closely.
    Good luck!
