I can hook up the cable from my LG K3 smartphone to my Windows 7 PC and the
"Computer" section of control panel shows a cellphone icon and the LG K3
identification as a "portable media device".
Cabled as described, what else do i need in order to operate my phone from my PC?
When i cable it i get the new device "bloop" sound, but not the dialog box such as
when i hook up an external drive.
There is no drive letter assigned by Win 7.
You don't need to root your smartphone; however, most remote control
software requires enabling Developer mode in your smartphone, enabling
Debugging Mode, and then enabling USB Debugging mode. The remote
software on the PC communicates via USB to the app on the smartphone.
Bluetooth can also be used for a wireless setup but it'll be slower.
One solution is the Vysor App for Chrome. I have Chrome installed but
it is used only for troubleshooting when Firefox has problems (which is
rarely). I don't like Chrome, especially since it takes over half a
dozen add-ons to acquire features already present in Firefox.
I've not tried Teamview for Mobile.
The one that I tried for a while was AirDroid. It worked okay but
eventually I got rid of it. It was more of a toy and experiment. After
a month, or two, I found that I didn't really care to control my
smartphone from my desktop PC. It's been many months so I might revisit
the app later.
I remember looking at Mobizen at the same time. I opted for AirDroid.
Something about Mobizen that I did not like but don't recall now.
I have a Samsung. They have their own SideSync app. Never used it.
Only remember disqualifying it as a candidate for remote control
software when I was researching that type of software. Maybe LG has
something of their own.
In your Subject, you mention emulation. In your message, you mention
drive letter. So which are you really looking to do? Emulate your
smartphone on your desktop PC (for remote control of your smartphone) or
just use some file explorer program on the PC to look at the files on
