tried wifi file transfer and airdroid to transfer files from PC to my note 3. could see the folders and files from my note 3 on PC but when copying files fro pc to note 3 aborts. what could be the problem (any firewall changes on pc or note 3?). no issues with note 2 and the same pc. is that because of kitkat update?

Its possible if you don't have a folder from that app on your external sd card and are using stock... KK doesn't allow any app to write to the external card unless it has it's own folder. It's a "security feature" Google put in....
Only thing it does is make using the external sd card harder and drive people to use cloud storage which is what Google wants....

One other thing it does is stop people updating their firmware! - stay on 4.3 DO NOT upgrade if you want to continue having full access to your sd Card.

At some point you will be forced to use their software, whether its a security update pushed to 4.3 or until you get a new phone... Sooner or later you will be assimilated....

Not necessarily. Should that happen I'll root and"fix" what Google broke!
