I just bought a Nexus 10, and as well as this being my first tablet, it’s also my first foray into the Android O/S. I don’t even have an Android based phone, so I am a complete Android newbie!
Anyway, my question is; when transferring files to the Nexus, either by wire from my PC, or wireless using something like Airdroid, just where should I put the files? For example, which folders do I put video files, photo files, or MP3 files into? Do I need to create new folders, and if so, how do I navigate to these folders on the Nexus?
Hope someone can help.
Apps are supposed to use certain folders to look for certain media and save things but I don’t think this is enforced. Many apps will just scan the drive for media it recognises, but others will look in the specific folder only so its worth sticking to it.
Unfortunately is seems to me that the folder gets a bit disorganised over time with apps doing whatever they like to save things but in theory you shouldn’t have to worry about the file system. I think some transfer apps (like Airdroid?) will hide the file system from you, ie just tell it to import MP3s and it will put it in the right place for you.
tbh I do everything online now so its been a while since I transferred anything!
Anyways, the folders as per Google’s documentation:
