    I can't seem to be able to connect to my PC using USB cable to my One Plus 7. Neither the original Red Wire cable nor any other cable is working. Whenever i connect to the system i do not get the option to change it from charging mode to file transfer. In fact, i do not get any notification of that sort at all. is anyone else facing the same issue? What is the solution to it?

    Have you tried system - developer option - default usb configuration- file transfer ?
    this sets the phone to file transfer etc when connected to the pc.
    Don't forget the pc needs the drivers also.
    hope this helps

    I have same problem, tried multiple cords and usb ports on 3 different PC's, same result. Phone will show that it's charging but never shows up as a connected device on the pc or on phone to show option to transfer. I have rebooted pc and phone as well as installed OnePlus usb drivers on the PC

    I have the same problem with my new oneplus eight phone when I connect it. It won't show up when I look for it on this pc. It is like it is not recognized is there a fix for this.

    Yes. When you plug in the phone, you should see an E: drive pop up. These are the drivers necessary to work with the phone.

    Hello, I experience(d) similar problems with my OPNord Warp cable. I managed to get my phones to connect by 'wiggling' the cable's USB-A end gently or by not inserting it all the way to my comp's USB port. If I insert the USB-A connector all the way in, the phones just charge -- no data connection. OP3T's Dash cable doesn't have the same problem and works flawlessly with both devices.

    I'm going to the seller with the cable to see about a replacement/2nd cable. Hope this helps.

    Has anyone found an answer to this? Like others I have tried every suggestion: different pc, different cables, reinstall driver, USB debugging and file transfer set; and nothing has worked. Mine went from working to intermittent to not at all which happened very suddenly.

    No it is only showing charging symbol on my onePlus 7. Neither my phone is showing any notification for pc connection nor my pc is detecting any new device.

    Same problem with me, tried on various computers, various OnePlus genuine cables, several restarts, downloaded the latest OnePlus drivers, ADB drivers but still no luck. It is just charging, not showing any notification in the panel. I've already selected file transfer as default in developer options. This is annoying to say the least.

    Hi, Did you solve your problem?
    The same for me here. Tried different cables/Usb ports/Laptops/usb debugging on-off/selected file transfer as default in developer options with no success.
    The phone doesn't show up in device manager and just charges.

    Same situation .

    Tried 3 different computers , 3 different operating systems. Set USB default to file transfer.

    My issue began after I experienced a "qualcomm crash dump" , immediately afterwards I rebooted into recovery mode and did a Factory reset.

    You asked in the right forum. Use the popup camera to do that.
