SyncToy and MicroSD card in Android RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi all,

    I've been using SyncToy for many years to sync PCs Laptops, NASs and servers. Now I am trying to use it to sync a music folder on my desktop PC (Win 7 64Bit) with a 32GB microSD card in a Samsung Galaxy S2.

    I can sync the folder happily when the SD card is inserted in the computer.  However when the SD card is in the phone I can see the folder, and edit the files manually.  However in SyncToy the folder is can be seen, but I when I select it I cannot click on "OK" in "Choose the right folder you want" as it is greyed out.

    Any thought son what I am doing wrong?

  • OK - solved this (and it is down to me not knowing my way around Android yet) - whilst I could see the SD card in FIle Manager/ SyncToy I had not selected Settings>Wireless and Network>USB Utilities>USB mass storage "Connect storage to PC" on my phone. Having selected this, SyncToy works fine...

  • Does anyone have a way to configure a Galaxy S3 or how to make this solution work on JellyBean?
