    I've tried 5 different USB Type C to Type C cables (3 different Anker, one j5create, one Belkin) & the result is always the same - constant cycle of Mount then Unmount.

    HP Spectre 13 (8th gen Core i7) is on the latest version of Windows 10 Home with latest HP & Intel drivers installed.

    The GS8+ is the Unlocked 955U1 GS8+ currently running Oreo 8.0.0 Beta 4.

    Only method that has worked so far is by using the HooToo USB Type C hub with USB A ports.

    I cannot believe I can't just simply connect my phone to my laptop with a Type C cable.

    Just for reference, I can connect the GS8+ to my older 2012 HP Pavilion laptop just fine using the Samsung OEM USB A to USB C cable.

    I had a similar problem connecting two computers. Apparently there are different usb c cables. I had to go purchase a Thunderbolt one. i don't know if your phone supports that though
