Broken USB C to USB Adapter and Exporting JWildfireMini Flames
It's a "UGREEN USB C to USB Adapter Cable Type C 3.1 Male to USB 3.0 Female". I got it to be able to put stuff on a thumb drive then on the computer. I had no idea at the time Android will NOT work with a Windows formatted Jump Drive, and wants to format it to it's own file system. So that was out of the question.
However it worked fine when I got it and I was able to format the thumb drive then put stuff on it. Well when I went to use it this time, it did NOT work for me. The USB symbol never showed up in the status bar and I never got the connected notification. I tried it on a fiends phone and the same thing - nothing.
So it was a waste of $10 and now the video files on the jump drive are lost forever. Oh wait, I have the old kind and it worked fine on my old phone and I recovered the videos. But I then formatted the drive for Windows. I'll be using the cloud from now on instead of this kind of thing. It works every time and I don't have to mess with it.
I also have a file sharing tool on my phone that allows me to use my WiFi to toss files to and from the phone. It's a lot faster than using a cable and file explorer.
