Question How to use a Galaxy S3 as an external USB drive for Tab 10.1 ?

Hello, Friends,

I have a Galaxy Tab 10.1 and a Galaxy S3 phone which has a 64Gb MicroSD card. IŽd like to know how of "IF" thereŽs a way to use the SIII as an USB external drive for the Tablet. I just have the tablet usb adapter, and even connected the S3 directly to it, but aparently nothing happened, I didnŽt see the S3 appear on the Tablet File Manager. So, any tips on how to do it ? Am I missing any step ?

BTW, can I map S3 on Tablet to access folders and files ( music, movies ) wireless directly only by proximity between the two gadgets without using LAN ?

Thanks in advance!

Never tried that so I don't know if it's possible. I've read that USB sticks and memory cards can be accessed through the Tab, but perhaps the S3 doesn't allow access through to the memory card.

You should be able to setup bluetooth or NFC communication between the two and transfer files back and forth. It's not the same as using one as storage, but it'll let you move files.
