I don't have Overdrive to tell you for sure but if it works like OP is suggesting, it SHOULD be something like this:
You'll need to spelunk in the file system, not all Android phones ship with a file system manager so if you need one try this: [link] (I think Samsung includes one but I don't know the layout)
From this app (similar in others)
I use ASUS' ZenUI file manager
it's free, it says it has ads but I've honestly never noticed any.
What does Solid have that this one doesn't?
On android you just open a browser, drop them, and they are sent to your phone. [link] This works for any and all file types as long as both the computer and phone are on the same network. I haven't tried to see if there is cloud support for this also.
Use a file explorer, I recommend this one:
Once you have both gcam and the file explorer Installed, go to the file explorer and select internal storage, then make a new folder and title it "Gcam" (without the quotation marks). After that, make another folder inside that one and name it "Configs" (again without the quotation marks). Copy and paste the config file into the config folder. In gcam double tap on the black area near the switch camera button. Then the config should show in the menu.
I had the same issue installing this got around by using anther file manager app [link] this one allowed me to open the file in iitc. Also make sure you have iitc for prime
I use the ASUS file manager app on my s7. It can connect to network shares (so if you have a share set-up on your macbook it can copy to that from the phone) or it can turn your phone into a webserver so you can browse the files on your phone from a webbrowser like chrome/safari on the network. That way you can just download and upload files from the webpage.
since ES File manager went down hill I found ASUS file manager as someone posted here, it works really nicely and no ads.
no bloatshit and for me a friendly UI.
Check out the Asus File Manager. I prefer to connect over wifi- in the app there's a button to make your phone available to a PC, which gives you an local IP to type into your browser, which then has a very respectable file management system. I find it more reliable than a USB connection at least, and speed is excellent.
I use the File Manager app which has a widget that allows you to select a particular folder and creates an icon on your home screen for that folder. Perhaps that will work for you.
I do it all the time...I have a shared hard drive on our home network and copy / save filles to it frequently.
Give this file manager a try... Click on the pull down menu and choose Network place.
If you phone has the capability of using a SD card, you can transfer the encrypted password file using the SD card.
My Android phone doesn't have a SD card. I use an App called File Manager . This app has a web based interface that you access using your computers browser. One of the things it does is let you transfer files between your computer and phone.
When you get an app that handles the internal/external storage, you need to give it permissions to read and write. It should ask when you try to handle either.
Try this one:
I use this one and transfer movies wirelessly from my stationary PC to the phone.
I use this one now, as I don't have to dick around mapping a drive to connect. It took me a while to figure out how to get it working! I'm no IT expert, so File Manager makes it a lot easier for me.
Not a solution to the USB issue, but in the meantime this app might work:
It generates a web interface you can access from your PC for easy file tranfers.
I exported the APK ([link])
but that was a waste of time because it's on the frickin' Play Store ([link])
the common cause are:
- you have your WiFi and the wired connection on different networks, you need to check if you can access pc shared folder from your tablet (you can download [link])
you have a network optimizer that give a low priority to the lea Server
you need to wait 5 sec before pressing the connect button (while i'm writing that i think in the next version i'll deactivate the button for 5 sec :) )
check if the wifi is activated on your phone (it always happen to me...)
Assuming you only have MTP mode on your phone for file transfer, and that this is how it's being sent on MTP (I didn't try it, so you can try a different file manager on the Mac first), then you'll want to use a file manager over WLAN
You'll be given an address to type in the browser from any computer that's connected to the same WiFi network, and you can control your files from there
You can also use Bluetooth
If you can't figure it out, you can wirelessly connect to your computer using Asus File Manager. IIRC, you create a Ringtones folder in the internal storage and just upload your music file.
Haven't used ES File Explorer in a while (it turned into creepy-AF adware really quick), so I have no idea how to make it work on that. I've used ASUS File Manager to transfer files over quick and easy.
That app either doesn't work or is just plain too difficult. I found this file browser and it actually worked so I immediately uninstalled ES bloatware.
Yep, this works. I always put a .nomedia file into
WhatsApp media/WhatsApp Images
WhatsApp media/WhatsApp Video
This stops anything showing up in the Gallery.
As for File Exploerer apps, I use ASUS File Manager. It's fantastic.
You might need to open it from a file manager like [link]
Also, quick sanity check - are you on Android 4.4 (Kitkat) or higher? Because you need at least Android 4.4 to use this app.
ya know i was feeling the exact same way... waste of money... but then over the last few days i invested more time in it and it's worth it now.
There is a file manager program that has a handy file transfer thing built in to it... it uses the browser on your PC and once your connected via WiFi or USB you can transfer files. It's also good for cleaning out other crap.
MicroSD card works fine. no problems there. Stuff seems to autoinstall on to the main memory though so i just use it for book/movie storage.
Regarding the driver support i really think i just need them for rooting it, so i'm gonna do that on my mothers laptop (it's win8)
I found the built in explorer was hard to use. Maybe I was doing it wrong but I couldn't figure out how to move a downloaded file to the ringtone filter. I downloaded a file manager and I was able to move stuff around easily. I use File Manager by Asus: [link]
Yep - another vote for the Asus file manager (works on any phone/tablet).
It has a handy large file finder to quickly delete things that are taking up a lot of space, and a convenient wi-fi file transfer feature.
File Manager (by Asus/ZenUI) opened it up and was connecting/transferring/streaming media through win10 network immediately || [link]
Phone is rooted and root is enabled (Apps and ADB have root access in developer settings).
I have used the CM13 file manager, ES File Manager, and the Asus file manager [link]
I use ASUS's File manager and use this (idk how to properly translate it) and access my drive with PC my username and password, like you do on a LAN server
This way you don't need any program running in the background on your PC
I don't know if other file managers can do it too but i know this one can
This is essentially a copy paste of ASUS file manager that's FREE and WITHOUT AD TRACKING, lol.
The Asus file manager is available for general download from the Play store BTW. Worked on my S7 and S9
Asus File Manager
I'm using ASUS File Manager.

ASUS File Manager is awesome. It's free with zero advertising or in app purchases
I use File Manager by Asus
Can't help with the cable problem, but you can transfer files to PC over wifi using an app like File Manager.
I wouldn't trust or use ES File explorer as many people here have suggested. At the moment I'm using the ASUS File manager as it does what I need and nothing more.
I use Asus file manager
haha, if you move a lot of files back and forth you'll definitely appreciate it.
There are a ton of apps, i'd recommend Asus's file manager its the easiest and free : [link]
here are a few more good ones:
Amaze File Manager
Total Commander - file manager + Lan plugin [link]
X-plore File Manager
Also there should be an official Google Samba client, but its unavailable in my play store you can look it up.
I like [link]

ASUS File Manager. I love the UI.
I use Asus File Manager
I have ASUS' File Manager (File Explorer) and I'm quite happy with it. It allows me to look through most the folders in my device (I guess root is needed for further inspection). It has a paper bin (which I never used), and you can quickly access to all the .apk, . pdf and so on files in your device.
Here's the link: [link]
Or install this file manager made by ASUS.
Otherwise there is a "Downloads" app that comes stock with the phone and you might find them in there.
Asus is the most easy file manager and supports Google cloud storage.
