Data transfer from laptop to Rog Phone 5

I'm having an issue connecting my Rog5 to my laptop as I need to transfer data from my computer to the phone.

I took a ASB-A --> USB-C cable and connected my laptop to the phone.

Now, the phone is charging, though

  • it does not show the "usual" usb prompt that Andoid shows,where you decide if charging only, doing file transfer or whatever else
  • the laptop does not recognize the phone

Also, the phone comes with a cable to charge it that is USB-C to USB-C, I though of connecting the phone to the USB-C port of my laptop but I fear I might break something, I'm not sure it's a very good idea and I found very sparse information on line and I'd like to not destroy a phone after 2 days :)

Does anybody have suggestions?

  1. Model Name: Rog Phone 5
  2. Firmware Version: ??
  3. Rooted or not: No
  4. Frequency of Occurrence: always
  5. APP Name & APP Version (If your issue relates to the app):


  • @__Shinesei__ Probably a USB driver problem with your laptop. You should be able to google your way to a guide on how to correct this.

    And no, nothing should break by using the USB-C cable. 🙂
