[Q] Large Files to SDcard - Impossible Via Phone
I like to keep some HD movies on my SD card. While 720 or 1080p isn't necessary on the phone I use it to playback via HDMI to large screens.
Most files are 4GB+ and I'd like to put them on the SD card which is formatted exFat and can accept the files (windows can copy onto fine)
The problem is Air Kies or Airdroid dont' give access to the external SD card so they see useless.
Using the cable (MTP) I can copy large files to the phone storage but to the SD card storage one gets an error
"Cannot copy *filename*"
It's file size is larger than the device limit.
So It seems the phone is telling the PC a limit. The phone is too stupid to realize the card is in exFat and can accept the file.
It's a factory Jelly Bean rom, I'd rather not root or put custom firmware on if I can avoid it. Just looking for a work around without having to take the card out, find a micro SD adapter, put it in my laptop and copy via wifi (slow) form my media PC.
So much for Androids 'drag and drop' simplicity when using a cable.
