    Motorola XOOM - Transfer files to/from my computer

    How do I transfer files to/from my computer?

    Transfer files to / from the computer:

    1. Connect your device to a computer using a data cable. (It is recommended to connect directly to the computer, not through a hub). If your device is not being recognized by your computer, you may need to update your computer's USB drivers HERE.

    Note: microSD Card Slot not active. A future software upgrade will enable this device support up to microSD cards up to 32GB.

    2. Use your computer interface to move files between your device and your computer.

    Windows PC:

    1. Open Computer or My Computer

    2. Your device should appear
    under Portable Devices (If your device is not being recognized you may need to update your drivers) Click here

    3. Select your device and select Device Storage.

    1. For photos & videos select DCIM > Camera

    2. For Music select Music or any other folder which contains music files

    3. For any other files you wish to transfer, select the folder which contains the files to move to your computer.

    4. Note: You can organize, rename and delete folders from your windows machine while the device is connected

    Apple/MAC:

    1. Download and install the Android File Transfer app from www.android.com/ filetransfer, then connect your Motorola XOOM using USB. The app will then allow you to access and transfer media back and forth.

    Important Notes:

    If your Windows PC is asking for drivers, click here to obtain the Motorola Driver tool.
    If your windows PC does not recognize your tablet, install Windows Media Player 11. Click here to download Windows Media Player 11 for your Windows PC.

    Additional troubleshooting tips

    Here's another sequence to try if you are still having problems after loading the drivers and installing Windows Media Player 11:

    1. Right click on My Computer

    2. Select properties > hardware > Device Manager

    3. If the PC is recognizing Motorola XOOM as a MTP device, you should be able to see it under "Portable Devices" and copy items to and from Motorola XOOM.

    4. If it is not there, right click "Portable devices" and select "scan for hardware changes" and see if that causes Motorola XOOM to show up

    5. If Motorola XOOM still does not appear under Portable devices, plug the USB cable into a different USB port on your PC and try again

    Before unlocking & rooting my Xoom... it all worked perfectly. My Xoom showed up and was accessible and I was able to remove/add things to the device's internal storage.

    Now, since unlocking, rooting, & flashing the 1.5Ghz kernel onto my Xoom... it doesn't show up on my PC at all. It will make an audio sound when I plug it in, but it acts as if the Xoom doesn't exist.

    Help? :x

    Edit: To clarity, my Xoom DOES show up, but it shows up as FOUR removable storage drives (drives E, F, G, & H).

    Any ideas?

    My computer recognizes the Xoom and shows Device Storage with a bunch of empty (right now) folders underneath that. Is there a way to get to the actual files that some of the apps use? Like the file where the Places locations are stored, for example. And if there is a way to get to that file, can the file be changed on a computer and then downloaded back to the Xoom?

    Is it normal for the Xoom to be VERY slow in responding while files are copying to the Xoom over USB?

    Also, it seems like the files are copying at a very slow speed to the Xoom versus other USB attached devices I have, is this normal?

    Additional troubleshooting tip: If you're having trouble transferring files or the transfer is extremely slow, try changing the USB port your Xoom is plugged into. I found that files would not transfer using the front USB ports on my PC but works flawlessly when using the rear USB ports.

    Ditto.. this is what I had to do also. I've read that sometimes the front USB ports do not give enough power to be able to have the Xoom be recognized? Once I used the back ones, my WinXP recognized the Xoom.

    You can always use Dropbox. This does work well.
