    unlocked phone no longer shows up as drive?


    On W7 i had my nokia lumia 900 unlocked and could plug it into my pc via the usb and it showed up as another drive.this allowed me to add remove music files etc. since installing W10 it no longer shows up?Indeed w10 seems to be changing things that it wants without me okaying it,if this continues i will be going back to w7.
    Q: How can i get my phone showing up as a drive i on w10.

    Instead, it'll show up as a media device. It won't have a drive alphabet assigned to it

    And if it doesn't show up at all, then try changing the USB port. Because, usually it should work. It works for me as you can see in the screenshot above.

    Try using a different cable. Maybe the cable got damaged. If you have a spare one, trying connecting your phone using that cable.

    cables fine,it works when i connect tablet to pc using same cable.
    i checked the Device manager and the phone shows up there,checked for updated driver,and unistalled and re installed drivers but it still doesnt show up as a drive? i obviously cant access this from the device manager.
    I also did the same when booting to w7 and its the same there?
