Connecting your LG Aristo to the computer is a simple task. For Windows 7 and higher, there’s no need to install USB drivers for file transfer. When your Aristo is connected to PC via USB Cable, pull down the notification bar to view the available USB connection modes.
The Four connection modes in LG Aristo are Charging, File Transfer, Photo Transfer & MIDI. Let’s see how to get the most out of these 4 modes of USB connection –
How to Connect LG Aristo to PC and Transfer Files –
Charging Mode –
It may seem that charging mode serves the only purpose of charging the phone when connected to PC, but it does more than that.
In charging mode, files cannot be transferred between phone and PC.
File Transfer Mode –
The Second USB connection mode is File Transfer or MTP mode. It will let you share files between your LG Aristo and Windows PC via USB Cable. In this mode, both the Internal Storage and SD Card (if installed) are available for file transfer.
To access the LG Aristo’s Internal Storage, Go to Computer < LG Aristo < Internal Storage as shown above.
Use File Transfer mode to Copy/Move files from LG Aristo to the computer & Vice Versa.
Photo Transfer Mode –
The 3rd USB Connection mode is the Photo transfer mode. In this mode, we can Import pictures and videos from LG Aristo to the computer. Basically, it creates a backup of your photos in one go.
You can see in the above screenshots how I’ve imported LG Aristo Pics using the “Photo Transfer” mode.
The same procedure can be applied in “File Transfer” mode as well but then, all unnecessary junk image files will also get copied as it gives access to all the folders in Internal Storage and SD Card.
In Photo Transfer Mode only “DCIM (Digital Camera Images)” & “Pictures” Folder is accessible as shown above.
The last USB Connection mode is MIDI device. It a special mode only operational when a MIDI device such as a MIDI keyboard controller is attached to the phone. Caustic 3 is an awesome app to be used in this mode. You can download it from the play store.
