Android Device Monitor shows blank in File Explorer

Hi, I dont think my emulator seems to be connected to my Android Device Manager since it shows blank in the Android Device Manager in the File Explorer.

Same problem. I enjoyed all the the android courses in this track except this one. This course is a mess:

  • missing teacher's notes.
  • Poor explanation.
  • No idea what we want to build.
  • The materials are too old.

If you want to gain access to your data without having to root your real device you need to run your app in an emulator with API 23 (or lower). It is a known problem that APIs above 23 can cause problems when deploying Android Device Monitor.
