How To Transfer Files Between Your Android Tablet and Mac

I am an iMac for a few years now.  Last year, I bought an iPad2 and it was working "perfectly" with iTune.  (BTW, Good Reader is actually an excellent pdf reader for iPad.  It can transfer files in between without using iTune.)

Anyway, I purchased an Asus Transformer TF300 to test out Android OS.  When I connected it to my iMac, iMac did nothing.  It did not recognised my Android as an external drive.  Why?

Don't worry.  Here is the step to get it working:


1. Download the Android File Transfer Program and save it to your computer.
2. Double click the .dmg file
3. Drag the Android File Transfer application into the Applications folder.
4. Now, plug in the Android Tablet via USB cable to your Mac.
5. The first time you connect your device via USB you will have to manually open the Android File Transfer application (after that, it will automatically open whenever you plug it in).
6. You will then be greeted by your Android Tablet’s file system and can now drag and drop files back and forth between them up to 4GB at a time.
