    Hi all,

    just bought a HTC One X+ and am unable to get it showing on my desktop as a removable drive.

    I have tried the USB debugging thing and it didnt work.

    I dont like HTC Sync software or Android File Transfer.

    I just want to see it as a removable drive. Any suggestions?

    Regards, Gordon

    Hi,

    thanks for the link.

    USB mass storage is catered for via Windows 7. I tried it out on my wifes work computer and it cam up as USB mass storage no problem.

    I am using a MacBook Pro running OSX Mountain Lion 10.8.2

    So how do I get it to do the same on the aforementioned MacBook Pro?

    Help! This is a deal breaker for me.

    I read something one time about AirDroid? Share files wirelessly or something like that... Any possibility there? I'm also a macbook user and getting the One X+ soon.

    I tried Airdroid and just don't like it as it's only a workaround to being able to see it as a removable drive on your desktop. Plus it's really slow to do any transferring. It appears in Windows 7 as HTC One X+ Portable Media Player. So why not in OSX, surely there is a workaround so that you can see it as a removable usb mass storage device?
