    I have an Asus Nexus 7 2013 tablet and a Macbook pro with OS X 10.8.5. I want to copy some ebooks in epub format from my Mac to the tablet. But no luck. I googled this and everyone says install Android File Transfer et voila! put the files where you want. There is just one problem - AFT can't create any folders. I click the new folder icon and it creates a new folder named "untitled folder" but then it gives an error "Could not rename folder. Try restarting or reconnecting your device." Neither of those suggestions worked. Any ideas?

    I would download a file explorer app from the playstore. ES explorer is pretty good. Create the folder using the app then plug it into your mac and transfer your files.

    do as suggested by y2whisper

    or

    upload your epub files to google books and read it using google books app in N7. Google books now let you upload 1000 epub & pdf files for free

    Thanks a lot, y2whisper. After installing ES I can see that there is already a folder named /sdcard/eBooks. But for some reason AFT was not showing me that folder. Wonder why not? And of course it couldn't create a folder with the same name, but instead displayed a really bad error message.

    Thanks, still1. It worked but the weird thing is - the cover art didn't come through. Both on the web and on the N7 I see a gray rectangle with the title and authors below it.
