    Default PC still not seeing Android as external drive?

    Hi,

    Just want to know if there's an update where a PC can once again treat an Android device (Galaxy Note 3) as a drive?

    Looked into this about a year ago but there was no solution.

    At the moment any PC seems to treat my device as a media device only which is a pain for me. My HTC Desire HD used to be seen as one with an older version of Android of course.

    Thanks.

    You need to instate appropriate drivers for your device. If you want, it can be connected through wifi by downloading a app front he Play Store and you can connect wireless, without having to install drivers.

    Wife file Explorer and air Droid are two good ones.
