    I plugged my Maxx into my PC with the aim of transferring my Cardiotrainer tracks to my Maxx. However when I browse via Windows 7, it does not show the Cardiotrainer folder. If I unplug and use Android Assistant File Manager to browse the folders, I find the folder on the Maxx just fine.

    Is this because the Maxx is only allowing itself to be seen as a Media Transfer Device rather than a volume or disk? Is there anyway around this? I'd hate to lose my track history.

    Also, is there a built in File Manager on the Maxx like the Bionic had? OR do I have to keep using a third party one like Android Assistant?

    Thanks,

    Thanks for the link. I did check the USB connection and the other option listed besides MTP is simply Camera. Selecting that limits only jpgs to be visible in Windows.

    I'm downloading and re-installing the drivers for Motorola Device Manager from your link. I'll see if that helps any.

    OK, downloaded the Device Manager and the only change was that now when I plug my phone in it throws up that annoying Backup Assistance tab in a browser that it had before with my previous Bionic. I hate that it does that.

    UPDATE: Motorola Mobility in a chat session said to reboot the phone and re-install the device manager and try again.

    This worked in making the folder viewable not hidden.
