    Default S5 - MyFiles can only see some files and folders on my PC

    Hello, I used to transfer files from my PC to my S3 using ES File Explorer over wifi. I've just got an S5 and because KitKat has locked down the external SD card, I can't use ES any more. I've tried using MyFiles, but when it connects to the PC over wifi, it can only see a fraction of my mp3 files and folders. I can still see them all through ES (but can't copy them on to the phone).

    Does anyone know why MyFiles can't see all of the stuff that ES can ?

    Well, that's weird I guess copying files is possible from SD card even using the KitKat ! I wonder what make you stop doing this I would say try restarting your device and again try connecting.
