I was very surprised and really disappointed when I connected my TPT to my Mac using the USB > Micro USB Cable and nothing happened. I was expecting the Mac to mount the device's internal storage. Should be like with every other Android device as well shouldn't it? E.g. the device asks you if you want to enable USB storage, you click yes and that's it. But nada!
Seriously, how am I to use this business product if I can't even copy my documents onto it?
Don't tell me to put my stuff onto an USB Stick an plugging it into the Mac and the tablet back and forth!
And while I'm asking, though not necessary, sending files via WiFi would be nice as well.
Thanks and regards

There used to be a similar issue when connecting the TPT to PCs running Windows XP. That should have been fixed a while ago with the latest software update.You might want to check with other Mac users if they are facing the same issue.
For WiFi transfer, you could use DropBox. It might take a while with large files, since your TPT has to upload to the DropBox server first, then your Mac has to download it from there.

Yes, I can mount the external SD card. Great. Can you tell me why I have 64 Gigs of space when I can only transfer my files onto that little 1 GB card I put into the card reader?
Sure, I can put my files onto that card, then use a file manager app and copy them to their desired location on the internal storage.... Seems a little inconvenient doesn't it? Why force me doing more steps then necessary? On a device that's targeted on business users, that want effectivity in their lives...

It works for me using "Android File Transfer". Free Application which connects to my TPT.
Its not a pretty solution but it works..
