    You have to install the C++ libraries (downloadable from Microsoft) in 32 bit even if your running 64 bit OS...........

    sm partition disk:179,64 private (replace with mixed what number you want to be external, ie: mixed 80 will leave 80% of card as external, 20% external)makes the sdcard have internal use & portable use which makes the computer discover it like normal

    I don't know, the responses I have read to this have been the usual bs...."A person will not be satisfied with computer not recognizing sdcard" (if entire card is formatted to internal)And if sdcard ever fails this will leave a person without their files.....Gee that is the scenario for anyone who does not backup their device!I'm in it with LG right now about the bootloader not being accessible after ZV4, ZV5, & ZV6 updates. The phone is not recognized by the computer even if adb recognizes it after you boot into either "android recovery" or download mode (firmware upgrade).

    go install LG bridge software on your computer, it includes the necessary drivers.....

    Yep, even after doing all the settings, ie... developer options, yadda yadda, once connected to the computer, pull your drop down notifications and you see the usb notification, clicking on this will bring up a multiple choice list and it will be for charging only. You have to set it to file transfer!
