Connecting as a Mass Storage Device (Galaxy Tab 10″)

You can drag and drop files from a PC or Mac to your Galaxy Tab by connecting as a removable disk. Follow these steps to transfer music from your PC or Mac to your Galaxy Tab using the Mass Storage USB mode.

  1. Connect the data cable to the Galaxy Tab and the USB connector to the USB port on your computer.
  2. In the AutoPlay window on your computer, click Open Device to View Files using Windows Explorer to drag and drop music files directly from your computer into a folder on your Galaxy Tab. (The title of this window might be different depending on the version of Windows you have.)
  3. Your Tab appears as a removable disk under Computer on your PC or mounts directly to your desktop on a Mac.
