The Media Transfer Protocol (MTP) is a protocol which purpose is to facilitate the transfer of media files and associated metadata to/from devices. Many devices and audio software applications support MTP.

Latest versions of several operating systems, including AmigaOS, Android, AROS, Linux, Mac OS, and MorphOS, Symbian OS support MTP, sometimes with additional drivers or software.
