How to Connect a USB MTP


Media Transfer Protocol, or MTP, is a data transfer protocol made specifically for transferring audio and media files on personal audio devices such as MP3 players. These devices connect to your computer using a mini-USB cable. Unlike other USB devices, once connected with a USB cable, an MTP device does not appear in your computer's drive list as a mass storage device, so you need syncing or third-party software to transfer files to it.

  • Attach your MTP device's USB transfer cable to the device.

  • Connect the other end of this cable to a USB port on your computer.

  • Turn on your device if you haven't powered it up already.

  • Open the data transfer software included with your MTP device. You cannot save directly on this device through a drive letter, so you need to use the software included with the drive, or similar third-party software. Disconnect the MTP device once you have finished the transfer.
