Hi steve3624,

We recommend you to check if there is any setting that needs to be enabled on your phone and then try to transfer the file to your laptop.

We also suggest you to check if there is any service by name Object Push Profile and start it. To do this, try these steps:
a. Click Start, type services.msc and hit enter.
b. From the list of services, look for Object Push Profile service and double click on it.
c. Change the startup type to automatic and click start button to start the service.
d. Click ok to apply the changes.
