    Default How to add files to Flyer?

    I'm looking at the Flyer & I really like it. But if I buy it, how do I transfer my music, docs, pics, etc to it?

    Lots of different ways for this. You can plug it into your PC and have it show up as a drive, you can use HTC Sync (Though I haven't been able to get Sync to recognize my Flyer), or you can get a micro SD card for it which you could also transfer files to with a card reader.

    Ah, there is the confusion. When playing with it in the store, I only saw the proprietary charging port. Is there a mini/micro USB hiding somewhere?

    The charging port accepts one end of the USB cable that you plug into your computer... It comes with a longer-than-most USB cable, and a separate charger. It's easy to move files. USB, MicroSD, Bluetooth. It's just like all the other tabs in that aspect.

    The charging port is a micro USB port (though it dose not appear as such) in addition to being a proprietary port.
    HTC was innovative here, their plug design being longer seats better and stays in better while using the device while charging, yet has full industry standard compatability.

    HTC sync have been unrelieable, but they have fixed it in the latest HTC sync update, then you can make a folder on your pc and make your flyer sync to that or you can as told in other posts drop and drag

    plug in flyer, choose youre desired connection on the pop-up screen on the flyer and whaaam! you have music, documents, movies etc. good luck,im very happy with my flyer

    You could use Dropbox for smaller files. That is how I transfer my documents back and forth actually since it is much easier then plugging it into my PC and waiting for it to show up as a drive. I may have to look into HTC Sync actually.

    You could also use Doubletwist. It allows for iTunes like syncing of photos, playlists as well as music and videos. Best of all, it's free!

    Check out the following link, including the comments at the bottom of the page for additional methods:



    I use Dropbox for small files. I also use a Windows shared directory and ES File Explorer to easily transfer any files.
