    I've used 2 cables to connect the phone and pc but the pc doesn't recognize the phone. I'm trying this without having internet service.

    Does the PC have Bluetooth? If so - make one of the devices discoverable, pair them from the other device, then you should be able to share the files through Bluetooth. It might take a little longer, but it should work.

    Welcome to Android Central! First things first -- when you connect the phone to your PC, swipe down the notification panel. Do you see a USB notification? If yes, then tap it and choose MTP (or File Transfer). Then open Windows File Explorer, select the phone in the device list, and navigate to the /DCIM/Camera folder -- that's where the photos and videos taken by the camera app would be stored.

    If you don't see a USB notification, then try a 3rd cable, since it's still conceivable that 2 cables could be faulty (or perhaps only for charging). Also try a different USB port on the computer (and don't use a USB hub).
