    Question How to connect Prime to Mac via USB port on dock

    When I connect my Prime to my Mac using the 40 pin power port connector's USB tip, Android File Transfer has no trouble seeing the Prime. However, if I connect the Prime to the Mac via a USB 3.0 cable from the Prime dock's USB port to the same USB port on my Mac, I get an error dialog box saying that " No Android device found."

    Is it impossible to connect the Prime to a computer via the USB port on the dock or am I doing something wrong?

    TIA

    I believe it will only connect thru the 40 pin mode and not thru a USB to USB method. Nice try though!

    Thanks, Mickey.

    Wonder what will happen when I get my Asus Tablet USB Kit and try to use a USB cable from it to the Mac? Will report back with results once I've had a chance to try it.

    I suspect it will act the same as with the keyboard dock.
