I've tried everything to import photos from my Note 5 to my Macbook Pro (late 2013) via a USB, but nothing has worked. I have Android File Transfer, and it has worked before for other purposes, but for some reason, the application crashes whenever I try to access the DCIM/Camera folder. In that way, I am unable to access the photos.
When I switch to a PTP connection, Photos opens to import from the device. It loads for a while, but then, it just says that there are "No Photos."
I've tried uninstalling Smart Switch and its drivers, switching to a different USB cable, etc. Nothing has worked. Any suggestions?
