USB Debugging Enabled but the Detection Still Failed?

2023-05-11 00:00:00/Posted by Kitty Parkerto Android Backup Topic/Follow @ MobiKin

When using a USB cable to connect your Android device to computer so as to make your device recognized by MobiKin products like Doctor for Android, Assistant for Android, Transfer for Mobile, Eraser for Android and Backup Manager for Android, you will need to enable the USB debugging on Android phone to make the connection successfully. However, if the connection still failed with the USB debugging enabled on your device, here's the guide for you to fix this problem.


Method 1. Select the Right USB Transfer Mode If You Have Not

If you haven't selected the USB transfer mode on your Android phone (especially for Huawei phones), the program may fail to detect your phone even with the USB debugging is on. To fix that, you can follow the steps below to select the USB transfer mode after connection:

Step 1. On your Android phone, scroll down the screen and tap "Changing via USB" to see more options. Reconnect your phone to PC if you don't see this notification.

Step 2. Select  "Transfer files" or "Transfer photos" on the pop-up window. The MobiKin software should respond differently once you tap on a mode, so switch the mode smoothly and pay attention to the response of the MobiKin product to see if the selected mode works. If neither of them works, try the next solution.
