I recently bought a smartphone with the intent of not having to bow to iPhone and its iTunes etc. I am a PC only user and so I don't really want to change my religion from Win-to-IOS!
However, what I thought would be simple is proving to be difficult. I am sure there will be many like me. And that is why I am posting here.
My pc runs Win-XP. The ALDI phone is Medion E4002 (MD 98388) and runs Android 4.1.1.
I want to copy some mp3 files that I have to the Android phone so I can listen. Not too much ask, is it?
But I am unable to. Tried the Help Line of ALDI. The bottom line from support person is that under Windows it should work without any additional software. Because in my case it does not work, the problem must be with my pc!
In Android under System Settings, I tried connection as a USB Storage. Yes, two new "removable drives" are recognized, but properties shows as 0 bytes and all blue disk.
And if I try the connection as a Media Device (MTP) the phone is not recognized by the pc.
Update from original psoter (july 25, 2013)
As was suggested by the Aldi / Medion Help Centre guy, I tried copying files from a Win 8 laptop. There too, the USB mode did not work, but MTP did. Thanks for the answers.
