Access filesystem from PC. Simpler way?
My Wife wants to know how to download pictures from her Galaxy Ace 2 to our PC (running Linux, not that that should make any difference here). Compared to my HTC Wildfire, it seems to be a right pallaver.
The mechanism seems to be:
1. Tap Menu->Settings->Wireless and Network
2. Tap USB Utilities
3. Tap Connect storage to PC
4. Plug in the cable
5. Tap Connect USB storage
That's 6 taps! And you need to remember where in the menu system to start.
On my HTC Wildfire (also running Gingerbread) the process is like this:
1. Plug in cable
2. Screen comes up with options including "Mount as a disk drive" and a check-box to 'use as default setting'.
That's 1, very clear and obvious, tap. If I tick the 'Us as default setting option' then the process is:
1. Plug in cable.
That's zero taps!
Is there any way to improve this on the Samsung?
