    I want to copy video files from my laptop to my phone via USB tethering but the tethering option is grayed out. I went to update my drivers but everything is up to date? The laptop is not recognizing my LG but the power is connecting.

    1. USB has 4 wires, 2 for power and 2 for data. They're not connected together. so "power is connecting" has nothing to do with "laptop is not recognizing".

    2. Use WiFi File Transfer to transfer files.

    3. If the drivers are up to date, there's nothing to update.

    4. The carrier can disable USB tethering in the ROM. Most do, for accounts on which you don't pay extra for tethering. (So both the laptop and the phone are tethered to your router - the file transfer still works the same way. Just plugging the phone into the laptop, assuming that you have the phone manufacturer's driver installed in the laptop, should allow the laptop to see the files in the phone.)
