    Default file transfer between android and chromebook

    I want to transfer pictures between my phone and my chromebook.

    First I pluged it with a usb, nothing hapend! (Why does not a dialog box or a link in the "files" apear?)

    Second I tryed some wifi-apps but when I try to surf to the url (for example Chrome can't find it.

    I want to transfer some GB at a time (many times) between the SD-card on the S4 and a external harddrive at the CB. I don't want to send it to Google drive/dropbox.

    Whar to do? Give up android for mac?

    You can host pretty much any file on a ton of cloud storage services, of which have apps for Android, and of course, have web pages.

    Google Drive
    Microsoft One(Sky)Drive

    Yes, I have a backup on dropbox. The problem is that I want to copy several GB many times. My phone and my computer is in a 20 cm distance, there is a USB-connection between them, and a wifi that both are connected to, Google has made the OS on both of them. Why do I have to send my stuff half around the world anyway?
