Download via MTP

Post by Doug Pardee » 11 Nov 12 17:30

Android version 4 (Ice Cream Sandwich) and later no longer provides USB Mass Storage as an option. Mobile phones (and tablets) running these later versions of Android connect using Media Transfer Protocol — MTP. This is claimed to be an extension of the older Picture Transfer Protocol — PTP.

After my mobile phone was upgraded to Android 4, I'm no longer able to use Downloader to import photos directly from the phone. I now have to copy them to a temporary directory in Windows, and Download them from there. It's a bit inconvenient.
