comment Is there a setting to allow folders to be uploaded from a PC/Mac to an Android phone via bluetooth?
I believe the feature I'm using uses OBEX FTP - FTP does support folders so would have thought it ought to work. Thanks for the suggestion of creating a folder - the contents contain subfolders etc so this wouldn't suit my needs. Not sure, in 2014, why support for folders would seem to be problematic, nor can I see why it would present any issues, e.g. security etc.

Thanks - this works - MSC mode means that the phone now appears as a drive on my machine - no need to install anything on my Mac, for example. +1 and Accepted answer. Thanks! Upvoted your last 2 comments as well.

Regarding "Xperia mtp driver" - I couldn't understand why a specific driver is needed - if the phone presents itself as a common-all-garden generic basic USB mass storage device then the host machine should recognise that without any need for any other drivers.

Still unlucky so far: If I select cancel when it asks to install the PC COMPANION nothing happens on the PC - no drive appears. But the phone says it's charging. (but thanks for offering advice)

comment Can USB charging (via mains adapter or from PC/Mac) of Android tablets be the main, primary method of charging? Or are there design issues?
+1 thanks @Tom. You're a good sport.
