I've been given a nice LG-P500 phone for my 67th birthday.

How the heck do I transfer music, photos and videos from the phone to my iMac OS X Lion, and vice versa?

I can't access the mini-SD card, so I can't find the LG PC Suite IV which is referred to in the P500 "Simple Manual". In the "Important notice" pink pages bit, in section 9 I can get up to the first part of para. 4: I can turn on USB storage on the phone. The phone opens "Image Capture" when I connect it by USB to the iMac. There is nothing visible. And of course an .exe file is for Microsoft Windows, not Apple.

Don't tell me I have to buy Parallels. And if the only way is sending stuff up into the clouds and retrieving it again, I'm not impressed. LG should surely have a way of doing it direct to Mac. After all, Mac OS isn't exactly new!

So, two requests:

  • Where can I download a Mac Lion version of LG PC Suite?

  • Where can I download a "Full Manual"? The "Simple Manual" - which you can download from all over the place - says "you can do stuff" but not, unfortunately, "this is how you do stuff." Not much use.

I suggest you to download and install Android File Transfer software. It will solve all the problems.

Once connected the device, turn on the file transfer mode from your mobile device and you are good to go!
