Usb hard drive not connecting

First Poster

When I connect a USB hard drive or flash drive my S9 tries to charge it. My wife has exactly the same phone and it connects straight away. Any ideas?

Mine does the same.pleae any solution? 

Pathfinder

You could try Settings, Developer Options, Default USB Configuration (it's a fair way down under Networking) and change the default to Transfer Files.  I can't test it as mine works fine.

@Pinkline: For external hard drives you will require an USB 3.0 OTG cable to connect to your S9. Samsung don't manufacture them, but you can find one with a quick Google search.
