    Default Sync music folder on external SD Card

    Anyone found a way to sync a folder on the external sd card? I'm rooted, but still no luck since Windows 7 just finds it as a MTP device and you can't map it to a drive letter to it for the my sync programs to use. I bought File Expert to setup an ftp server, but it can't see root folders (only sees the internal phone memory, even though in settings I've given root access). I had read that you could force the device manager to use the usbstor.sys driver instead of MTP driver, but I couldn't get that to work either.

    Between lower wi-fi signal, lower 3g strength, I'm starting to doubt my decision and hype of this phone. I still have 7 days, but would like to keep it and know that software updates can fix alot of these issues. Any one have a way to sync folders and only transfer the differences?

    ISyncr syncs my iTunes playlists to the SD card.

    Same here. I had a problem with my playlist syncing directly to the device memory. It was brought to my attention to... right click the isyncr icon while on your desktop. Then you can select the sd card for storage

    +1 for iSyncr. Add WiFi Explorer Pro for general file transfer.

    I've been looking for sync solutions (for music, photos, and random files) since I got my Galaxy Note 2, and I think I've finally found one. It's called Cheetah Sync, and it's from the same folks who do iSyncr. You can find it here:

    The free version only lets you define one sync job (i.e. one computer folder/subfolders to sync to one device folder/subfolders - you can run the sync as many times as you want). When I tried it out last night it seemed to work, so I shelled out for the paid version (I think it was $4 US), which lets you define unlimited jobs. The only possible downside I can see is that it's WiFi, not USB, so it might be slow for really large transfers.

    I use FolderSync.
    It lets you sync about any storage location on the phone to about any online cloud service like SugarSync or Dropbox, plus FTP or local shared folders.
    So for videos or music, I drop it on my desktop, it syncs to my Android device. You can manually sync or auto sync.

    Between it and Sugarsync, I only ever you wires for charging.

    I like the idea of FolderSync's being able to sync to any local shared folder without a desktop client (which Cheetah Sync requires), so I decided to give it a try. It was pretty slow and eventually locked up my phone to the point that I had to pull the battery. Have you run into anything like that?

    I love ES File Explorer for straight copying (and app backups and everything else it does), but it doesn't do syncing. If they'd add sync capability, I'd never use anything else!
