Default [Q] Putting videos on your HTC ONE

Hey guys, question. Since this phone doesn't function in USB MAss Storage mode, what are my options if I want to take a movie I have on my PC and transfer it to the phone?

Thanks for your help!

It DOES function in USB mass storage mode, hence you copy your videos normally.

No. It's MTP. You need a recent Windows Media Player if you're using Windows. You should be able to use HTC sync manager.

My HTC ONE is shown as an add-on device and I can copy anything onto/ from it normally, by dragging / dropping. This behaviour is observed both in Win8 and in Win7. The phone itself is not rooted and it has a stock firmware

Agree, mine works fine once connected to a pc, I can drop and drag any file in any folder.

Mines also stock.

...but that doesn't make it USB Mass Storage.

It uses Media Transfer Protocol, something that could have better support on linux and mac.

For example, I doubt you could plug it into a digital picture frame or network media player and have it work.

If an animal walks like a dog and barks like dog...

Being a layman, I have no idea about what protocol precisely HTC One uses internally, and tbh I don't care since it works exactly like a normal USB device with both of my PCs.

I plug it in, it shows up in my computer, I drag and drop all my types of media into their folder and I'm good to go.

Good for you. However, it's not as easy if you're not running Windows 7 or Windows 8 because it doesn't support UMS, it supports MTP, so in this case it neither walks or barks like a dog.



Next time, if somebody posts "Since this phone doesn't function in USB MAss Storage mode", you'll know it "doesn't function in USB Mass Storage mode" and you'll have no need to incorrectly correct them.
