    Unhappy Can't Transfer Files to my Xoom Via USB

    So this has been a problem that's really starting to make me angry. I've been trying to transfer mp3 files that I've converted from youtube videos into my music folder all day, and the copying files bar just stops and stays in the same place. I've tried waiting and everything. So after that I close the transferring files window and the xoom internal storage folder is unresponsive. So then I have to close out of it, unplug and plug my xoom back into my computer, and try copying files again. It'll work sometimes for like one or two files and that stop again. It's really random which is keeping me from finding out what the solution is. Last night, I could transfer 4 at a time and have no problem. I've tried putting the files in different folders, I've downloaded MotoHelper, and updated it and all the drivers to their latest version, and everything. And people have said that you can use google music to stream it from your google cloud. But the thing is, I only use music on my xoom for road trips and it's a wi-fi tablet and that would do no good. So yeah, if theres anyway I could fix this please tell me.

    Welcome to the forum

    1) You may try this.
    - Uninstall all the drivers.
    - Download and run this cleaner for your PC : here
    - Once done, reboot your PC.
    - Reinstall moto driver : here and install Window media player (if you havent)
    - Use USB port from motherboard (Usually at the back of your PC)
    - Reboot your Xoom and give it a try.

    2) Alternative, Transfer via Wifi.
    - AirDroid: here

    Hope it works

    Thank you very much for the help. I've been looking at more threads and I finally found the solution. If you plug the USB connector into one of the back ports on the computer case, it actually transfers, and much faster and easier at that.

    I believe you need root for reverse tethering.

    I came across this, give it a look.
