I just faced the same problem connecting the cellphone to Windows, in order to scan with the desktop anti-virus.
After some research on the web, it seems that Android phones aren’t enable to be mapped in the OS as storage volume (like ‘C:’ or ‘F:’) anymore. The protocol used to handle USB communication between the cellphone and the OS changed, so the anti-virus scan can’t run, because it can’t even detect a volume.
Work around: even though the cellphone can’t be mounted like local disk drive, you can deploy a webserver easily installing an App that do this. After that, map the cellphone as a network drive and it will appear in the windows explorer Network hierarchy. So, in Kaspersky you will now be able to find the cellphone in the selective scan listing.
I just did a succesfully scan on the mobile device!
Have a good one.
