connection via usb
Hello,
I just got a samsung galaxy s4, tmobile version. I have never owned a smartphone before. One of the threads says that you can just plug your phone into the desktop computer with the usb cord, and the computer will recognize it as an external device, then you can just drag and drop into the phone's memory.
My computer does recognize it, but I can't seem to do anything with it. Can't drag and drop, nothing. I use Linux Mint.
Any help would be appreciated,
thanks

I don't know about Linux, I always assume it would be easier with Linux since android is based on Linux.

As i understand there is no more drag and drop in Android after 4.1 or something like that. I think you have to use MTP connection.

Here is a maybe usefull link

I find that via my wireless LAN, copy and paste works well to move files between my Win7 shared folders and my basically stock unrooted GS4 . No cable needed. I use ES File Explorer on my GS4 for this purpose.

Try using an app called Air Droid from the app store, it's free and allows drag and drop.

Works fine in Ubuntu, so it isn't a Linux issue.

Yes, but what I want to do is transfer files/videos etc. that are already on my desktop hard drive, onto my phone's sd card. Air droid is wireless, isn't it?
