USB mass storage on Moto G

📅 2014-Jul-02 ⬩ ✍️ Ashwin Nanjappa ⬩ 📚 Archive

The Moto G runs Android KitKat or later versions. USB mass storage (UMS) has been removed from these versions of Android. So, plugging in a USB thumb drive or a hard disk of any kind is not possible.

You could use FTP to transfer files over wireless. Or use the slow MTP or PTP to transfer files by connecting Moto G to a computer.

Tried with: Android 4.4.3 and Moto G
