In this article, we will discuss how to enable the mass storage mode or MTP (Media Transfer Protocol) on your Samsung Galaxy device. This tutorial is applicable to various models, including the Samsung Galaxy 7h and J2.

When connecting your Samsung Galaxy device to your computer, you may notice that it automatically connects as media, without offering the option for mass storage mode or MTP. However, we can enable this feature by following a few simple steps.

Step 1: Access the Developer Options
To begin, go to the settings of your Samsung Galaxy device. You can do this by swiping down from the top of the screen and tapping on the gear icon or by accessing the apps menu and finding the “Settings” app.

Step 2: Access the Software Information
In the settings menu, scroll down to find the “About Phone” or “About Device” option. Tap on it to access additional information about your device.

Step 3: Enable Developer Options
Once you are in the “About Phone” or “About Device” section, scroll down to find the “Build Number” entry. Tap on it repeatedly seven times to enable the Developer Options. You will receive a notification indicating that the Developer Options have been enabled.

Step 4: Access the Developer Options
Now, return to the main settings menu and scroll down to find the newly enabled Developer Options. It should appear just below the “About Phone” or “About Device” option.

Step 5: Enable MTP Mode
Tap on the “Developer Options” to access its settings. Look for the “USB Configuration” or “USB Mode” option and tap on it.

Within the USB Configuration menu, you will see that the default option is usually set to “Charge this phone.” Tap on it and select “MTP” from the available options.

Step 6: File Transfer
By enabling MTP mode, your Samsung Galaxy device will now allow file transfers when connected to your computer. However, you may still need to allow the connection from your device.

When you connect your device to your computer, a notification may appear on your phone’s screen. Tap on it and select the option to “Allow file transfer” or a similar prompt to proceed with the file transfer.

Remember to disconnect your device safely from your computer when you are finished transferring files.

In conclusion, enabling mass storage mode or MTP on your Samsung Galaxy device is a simple process that can be done through the Developer Options. By following the steps mentioned above, you can effortlessly enable this feature and easily transfer files between your device and your computer.
