Galaxy View: How do I transfer files between my Samsung Galaxy View and a computer?

Last Update Date : Apr 13. 2018

File Transfer

You can use the supplied USB connector to connect your device directly to your computer and transfer music, pictures, and other content files. For example, if you have a music album stored on your computer that you want to listen to on your phone with any of the music apps, just attach your device to the computer and copy the files to the music folder.

Note: Screens and settings available may vary by wireless service provider and software version.

Transfer Files Between the Device and a Computer

Note: The first time you attach the device to a computer, the device driver software will automatically install on the computer.

1 Connect your device to your computer using the supplied USB/charging cable.
2 Click Open device to view files.
