Default transfer files from pc or mac to 8100

Please Login to Remove!

is there a way that the 8100 can mount like a camera or ipod or drive onto a pc or mac? I currently cant do it - I also do not have a micro sd card.

Please help - I would like to take files back and forth from work to home

Thanks in advance

Use the USB cable and Desktop Manager software that came with the device.

Remember, please try searching first!

Need a screenshot? ... Like JavaLoader?
Try using BBscreen .....Use JL_Cmder!
or BBScreenShooter!

With a Mac, first on the 8100 you need to turn on "Mass Storage Support" under Options -> Advanced -> Media Card

Then when you connect via USB the media card shows up as drive where you can drop files into the appropriate folder.

Pretty easy.
