    How to transfer stuff from your computer to Phone?

    I was wondering if theres an easier way to transfer stuff from your computer to phone?
    I have my USP plugged it and I tryed to transfer some Icons over to my phone and it says somethin about its an PNG file and wont show then I unplug my phone and Id go to my gallery to check to see if it's there and my Icons are no where on my SD card? Sometimes it would take a while for certain stuff to show up on my SD card from transfering stuff from computer to phone.
    Does anyone know why I cant transfer PNG files? Or is there an easier way? I want these Icons on there and cant get them on.

    If anyone can help me out.
    Thanks soo much!

    If you have the X set to USB mass storage when you plug it in you should be able to just drag and drop the icons to whatever folder you want on your SD card. PNG files are supported. I do it all the time.

    +1 for Dropbox. Tonido is also pretty good, but where Dropbox requires the files in question to be in the Dropbox folder, Tonido requires the PC to be on. Tonido is great because you can access any file on the PC, regardless of folder, but there are some aspects I feel lack in comparison to dropbox--like being able to download .zip files.

    Drag the files into the public folder on your dropbox, they will show up in the public folder on your devices dropbox

    After you plug it in pull down your notification bar and then click USB connection then USB Mass Storage.

    Where's the notification bar at? All I see by the clock settings is MotoConnect.
    What I do to drag my Icons and stuff in my phone is By going to my computer then clicking on my phone and click on remove storge and I drag in my files that way. Some files work and stays in there but some dont.
    But I dont see notification bar though.
