i tried looking at all the past treads to see if any would help...but nothing i could find so here i am...
So with that out of the way, i am having issues transferring files (excel documents) from my laptop to my SG3 phone. I want to use my phone as a USB drive "of the sort" Why carry around thumbdrives and what not if my phone can take care if it all in 1 stop shop
My SG3 has a 32gig internal and i bought another 64giger additionally to house my word/excel documents and stuff (music etc...)
my problem is that when i hook up the USB cable from my GS3 to PC, the PC does not see my phone as a drive to dump files onto. It see's it as a media drive (camera) In window explorer, it says it is 'SCH-I535' (camera) drive. When i click on it...it show nothing...not the 32gig drive or the 64gig drive.
I tried dragging and dropping the file from PC to Phone in window explorer and no dice...
I used to have a DroidX and when i hooked it up, the DroidX gave me option of USB mass Storage, PC connect, Media connect, Phone Charge, etc..and i tlet me drag and drop files.
The SG3 only give me 2 options...Media Device (MTP) or Camera (PTP)...it autochecks the first one (MTP)...again above i says it sees it as camera when i look in the PC...but on the phone it says Media Device.
Is there something in settings on my SG3 i need to activate or something? My PC cannot see my phone when i hook it up. My DroidX had NO problems when i hooked it up. I could simply drag and drop from one drive to another (both ways)
