Windows 7: Transferring files from W7 to Android rooted phone

Transferring files from W7 to Android rooted phone


The issue is, I'm trying to learn how to transfer files from my notebook computer to my Android phone via the command line utility( C:\ ).

I've tried going to the directories where the files are located then using the command : copy(file name) H:/(android phone directory)/sdcard/folder destination.

What am I doing wrong?

Much thanks in advance

Could it be a simple typo? The path should be typed with backslash \ instead of slash /, so the path should be H:\sdcard\folder instead of H:/sdcard/folder.

In addition to what Kari noted, Windows command line does not like spaces in file paths. If there is a space an any path, such as: copy C:\Program Files\yadda yadda H:\Some Folder wrap both paths in double quotes. Like: copy "C:\Program Files\yadda yadda" "H:\Some Folder" and hit Enter.

Thanks to both of you. It is H:/ and also since Android stores files by default to the sdcard, that folder need not be designated. Path = H:/(destination folder).

Much thanks again.:)
