Connect to a Macintosh computer via USB
You can use a usb cable to connect your tablet to a computer run-
ning Mac os x with a usb cable and transfer music, pictures, and
other files in both directions.
This connection uses the MTP protocol, which is not supported
by Mac OS X natively. Therefore, you first need to install the free
Android File Transfer application on your Macintosh. It's avail-
able from www.android.com/filetransfer, along with instructions
on how to install it.
After you install Android File Transfer, follow these steps:
1. If you are using Android File Transfer for the first time, double-
click it to open it.
After you start Android File Transfer once, it opens automati-
cally whenever you connect your device to your computer.
2. Connect your device to your computer with a usb cable.
Android File Transfer starts, if it's not already running, and opens
a window that displays the contents of your device, along with
storage space details at the bottom of the window.
You work with this window much as if it were a Finder window:
opening and closing folders, creating new folders, and dragging
files to or from it and other Finder windows. Disconnect the USB
cable when you're finished.
