Connecting my Samsung phone – The device has stopped working – Windows 10 Support – BleepingComputer

Hi.  Long time between posts.  In other word, all has been ticking along nicely.

 

Now, however, I have an irritating issue.

 

I have in the past few years connected my Samsung S9 phone to my PC to d/l photos to my photo library.  No problems.

 

Recently, i.e. 1 month ago, I began receiving the error message

 

The device has stopped working or has been disconnected

 

If I “x” this out, there is another behind it.  There are only ever 2 of these.

 

Disconnecting my phone with a “Safely Remove Hardware” is NOT an option that is available, so I just turn it off and unplug it.

 

This doesn’t cause me any issues other than it irritates me.

 

Any reason why it suddenly started and any idea how to stop it?

 

thanks

Hoges.
