MTP-Alternative USB Drive

Contains Ads

USB file transfers with PC - without 'MTP' problems.

No more USB ‘MTP driver not found’ or ‘can’t find my files’ issues - Supports both Windows and Ubuntu GNU/Linux!

Update: Transferring LARGE Files like HD Video from phone to PC? Please try my new app called 'BohorShare' which is designed specially for that case:

New! Now supports external SD-Cards (/mnt/extSdCard) read access. (The extSdCard is 'Read-Only' as restricted by Android's new policy in Kitkat onwards). However, the normal 'sdcard' folder can be written normally.

'MTP-Alternative' shares this device's storage as a 'Drive' to Computers via USB Tethering instead of the default android 'MTP' file transfer method and makes you avoid the 3 common 'MTP' problems listed below:

1. 'MTP Driver not found' issues:

Solved: 'MTP-Alternative' uses 'USB Tethering' instead which uses the more 'generic' ethernet-like driver already available on most Windows PCs and also Ubuntu and other GNU/Linux distributions.

2. 'MTP file refresh issue: PC to Android': Sometimes the new photos, music copied from PC don't show in Android Gallery or Music apps.

Solved: 'MTP-Alternative' automatically handles this by default. It informs the Android Gallery or Music apps about the availability of new photos and music files and also updates on file delete - no restart required.

3. 'MTP file refresh issue : Android to PC': Newly created files on Android - which exist on Android file-browser/gallery apps, etc - don't get shown in the MTP Drive on PC - even after refresh (F5) on PC Drive'.

Solved: If you open a drive using 'MTP Alternative' on PC - simply press 'F5' to refresh and the new files should show up normally.

MTP-Alternative does NOT limit the file size. If you're facing file-size limits - this is likely a Windows issue - please see likely solutions below:


Very easy step-by-step instructions provided in the app.

Hope you find this useful!
