Support Transferring Pics?

    Could someone tell me how to transfer pics that I downloaded that was sent to me. When I use the USB storage transferring, i can only find the pics that I took on the phone - none of the pics that people sent me, but it does shows them in "Downloads" in gallery. Very frustrating, but i'm sure it's operator error... (By the way, I'm using a Mac Book Pro if it matters...)

    If your Mac is on your home network, you'd use a file manager like ES File Explorer on your tab for transfering.
    ES can access your Mac via WiFi as a network share.

    There won't be problems any more with this USB media protocol fuss!
    ES would transfer your pics from the Download folder to your Mac :)

    It could be the usb mode that you are using to mount is MPT instead of mass storage. You can try this app to switch the mode:

    It has enabled me to see and transfer anything on my phone instead of just music and pictures from my library.

    The OP has probably found a solution by now, but I hope this may help others searching with the same problem.
