I have a MacBook Pro that I have paired with my tablet, which is an Acer Iconia Tab A500. Although they have been paired using bluetooth, when I connect the tablet to the cpu via USB connection, the MacBook Pro doesn't show the tablet as a storage device. In fact it doesn't show it at all. Is there anyway to cause it to show the tablet? It gets kind of old having to reconnect the tablet to my old Windows laptop in order to move files/photos via drag n drop. Thanks.

I finally got it to work yesterday. I went to laptopmag.com, downloaded the video and the app in the links below and my MacBook Pro shows my tablet now. Thanks for your help. If anyone else is having this problem, please share.

Website to find the android file transfer app: LAPTOP Magazine Search: android file transfer
