    External Hard Disk and Android Phone not always detected.

    Hi.

    I have installed Xubuntu 16.04 on Asus X205TA and everything works. Except the external hard disk and android phone. They get detected at random like I just plugged them in and just got detected and I can open them. But, at times they don't get detected. The android phone just shows 'charging' option and not option to enable file transfer. And I have all the mtp packages, gvfs etc.

    What could be the issue?

    Regards.

    I have an Asus laptop a Q500A and I found that when I plug in my cell to a USB port nothing on the laptop shows up, but I get a notice on my Asus Zenfone 2 asking if I want to do a file transfer. If I select yes it will then show up on my laptop. Maybe the problem is with the phone and not the computer.
    I did find that I have USB 2 and USB 3 ports and sometimes one will work and the other won't when it comes to hard drives.
