    Default GN newbie

    Wow guess I feel like a newbie all over again, plugged my GN to my MacBook wanting to transfer music, ringtones and photos and not like the old days of mounting the SD card and moving it over...

    The phone does not even get recognized when I plug it in.

    Did some forum searching but not get the answer to figure what I'm missing...

    You have to install Android File Transfer in order for your Mac to recognize your phone Android.com . You can transfer files this way, or by downloading applications such as Dropbox, AirDroid, etc.

    Default Re: GN newbie

    Thanks that worked for me, guess I need to read up on changes since I have not been using android in awhile. I was able to transfer my music and photos but just drops my photos in one group instead of how I had them grouped and it won't let me move my ringtones from iTunes either. This I guess is something more with iTunes format, not a big deal will just make them again.

    Thanks again
