Unfortunately, my Droid is deprived with such feature, so every time I transfer large files from my computer to my phone I always had to mount my phone to my PC using standard Data Cable.
In this post, I’m going to introduce you to a useful Android application that lets you transfer files from PC to mobile phone (and vice versa) via Wi-Fi connection. In other words, we are going to use existing Wi-Fi network to copy/move files from our Android devices to our computer.
Use Existing Wi-Fi Network To Transfer Files From Android Phone To PC (And Vice Versa)
Here’s how to copy, transfer files from Android device to your computer over Wi-Fi:
Step 1 Download and install Software Data Cable for the Android HERE. Or you can search for “Software Data Cable” in the Market.
Step 2 Once installed, launch it. You should see this default start-up screen:
Step 3 Hit “Start Service”. The app should then automatically assigns an IP Address and Port number needed to connect to the phone (see screenshot below).
Step 4 Now, using the IP address and port given, enter that into your PC Windows Explorer, and you will then be shown the contents of your memory SD card (as shown below).
You can then easily transfer files from your memory card to your PC (and vice versa). You can also use FileZilla or any FTP client of your choice. Enjoy!
