Connect to a Mac computer

You can use a USB cable to connect your phone to a computer running 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 will need to install the free Android File Transfer application on your Mac computer first. It's available from www.android.com/filetransfer. Here, you will also find instructions on how to install it and work with it.

  1. On your Mac computer, go to www.android.com/filetransfer to download and install Android File Transfer.
  2. Connect your phone to your Mac computer via the USB cable that came with your phone.
  3. If you are using Android File Transfer for the first time, double-click it to open it.

    After that it will open automatically whenever you connect your phone to your computer via USB.

  4. Android File Transfer opens a new window that displays the contents of your phone.

    Storage space details are displayed at the bottom of the window.

    Work with this window as if it were a Finder window - open and close folders, create new folders, drag files to or from it and other Finder windows, etc.

  5. When you are finished, unplug the USB cable.
