Now you can try the Corresponding solutions below to fix this problem.

Part 2. Corresponding Solutions to Fix Connection Failure with USB Debugging Enabled

Solution 1: Select the USB Connection Mode

After connecting to the computer via a USB cable, some Android phones like HUAWEI need to set up the USB mode to make them detected by the software although the USB debugging is on.

Step 1: Scroll down your phone screen and tap the notification "Charging via USB" for more options. The details of the options will be different according to Android models. If you do not see this notification, reconnect your device to PC.

Step 2: A prompt shows up, select "Transfer files" or "Transfer photos" smoothly and look at the interface of the Coolmuster software once you tap on a mode. The software will respond to your selection and will move on to the next connection page if the mode works, try the next solution if both modes don't work.
