Alright, thanks for specifying that.

 

Are you able to move it to a PC? If you can move it to a PC, you will be able to store this internally or store it on Google's Music servers.

 

Has anyone else run into this difficulty?

Thanks for reaching out, I can understand how frustrating this may be, especially if it has worked with previous devices.

 

Would you mind specifying which CTG cable you are using?

 

Is this a USB-C cable or are you using the USB-C to USB-A converter?

I am using a converter on the cable, but it does seem to work with other items

Thanks for clarifying that, sometimes when you are using a converter from USB-A to USB-C the cable will lose some functionality.

 

Would you mind specifying what function you are attempting to accomplish with your CTG cable?

I see, thanks for that clarification!

 

Do you have these files stored on a computer that is on the same network as your phone?

 

You may want to try one of the various WiFi file transfer apps found in the Play Store.

 

Does anyone have any suggestions for one of these apps?

Yes it helped and no it didn't. I have thumb drives with files and info on that i use fairly regularly. Since I have been using this note 8 there just seems to be so many things with this i can't  do where as on my note 5everything worked very well. Seems like the upgrade is not really an upgrade after all. Wish I had my note 5 back.
