    Question How to back-up/save Android files on Mac?

    I need to save my Android phone files on my Mac before I factory reset my Evo V 4G WiMax.

    How do I do this?

    Depends on what files. If you just want things like photos and music, hook the phone up to the computer VIA USB and transfer them.

    On Macs, that does not work.

    Why not? I hooked my phone up to someone's Mac a couple of weeks ago and moved files between the two. What happens when you hook your phone up to your Mac?

    My HTC Evo V 4G WiMax phone asks to choose a connection type: Charge only, Disk drive, HTC Sync, Media sync.
    USB debugging is checked.
    My Mac shows no indiction whatsoever of the connection.
    I have the correct USB cord, not the charging cord.

    I tried Disk drive and Media sync but my Mac doesn't respond at all so that's pointless. I downloaded HTC Sync although it is only for PC and that obviously did not do anything helpful.

    What am I missing or doing wrong here?

    TIA
