A few questions about data sharing via usb
Hi, usually at home I connect my GNote to the MacBook Pro via usb for charging. Whenever I try to share data between the two devices, I follow these steps:
1. Go to Wireless and network->USB utilities
2. Click "Connect storage to PC". A window shows up.
"Attention. USB is connected. Remove the cable"
3. Unplug the usb cable connecting the Note and the laptop.
4. When "USB mass storage. Tape the button below to copy files between
computer and SD card" shows up, click "Connect storage to PC."
5. A window shows up saying "USB utilities. Connect USB cable to use
mass storage." At this point, I reconnect the usb cable.
6. "USB connected. You have connected your phone to your computer
via USB. Select the button below if you want to copy files between
your computer and your Android's USB storage" shows up.
Click "Connect USB storage".
7. The green Android turns orange. Then, on my desktop, two
"NO NAME" icons show up. One for the phone and the other
for the external sd cards.
8. After usage, I reject both "NO NAME" icons and click
"Disconnect storage from PC"
9. The green android shows up again. I just click the home button
to do whatever I like with the phone.
My questions are:
Q1: Is this procedure correct?
Q2: Why I have to unplug and plug the usb cable/device?
Q3: What is the proper order of unmounting the two "NO NAME"?
Q4: Is it advisable to rename the two "NO NAME"?
If so, shall I just do it on the desktop of my PC or somehow
change the name of the Galaxy Note and the external sd card?
