I was working to reorganize my music library and finally dump iTunes. I am experimenting with a new Music Player that requires a USB synch using MTP.
The main reason for the switch from iTunes is that a lot of my Music is Lossless encoded and it just takes up too much room on my phone. I could not find an iTunes synching solution that would transcode those large files to a smaller format during the synch process (unless I go with an iPod / iPhone).
When I switch my phone to MTP mode, the PC (Windows 8.1) does not recognize it. If I switch to Mass Storage (UMS) the phone shows up in the file explorer.
Any suggestions on how to get the MTP working would be appreciated.
