When copying media over to my Asus Transformer, it pops up saying "Do you want to copy <FILENAME> to your device?" with options "No, skip this file" and "Yes, your file will be copied but may not be able to view or play on your device".

Does anyone know of a way to disable this extremely obnoxious popup?

Hey arael,


Is it NTFS or FAT32?

Unfortunately as it's listed as a portable device there is very little information about the file format.
The Asus website doesn't list it either, however I would assume it's NTFS.

There doesn't appear to be any options for either the device or internal storage when checking the properties page from Windows Explorer, which sucks.

That would annoy me too : )

BTW, how big is the file? And it shows up every time u copy something?

Even the tiny files?

Doesn't the transformer use Android?

Any size, as long as it's video/audio. Doesn't seem to do it for anything that doesn't play back.

and yep Pyree, the Transformer uses Android 3.2.1 (I believe it's up to 3.2.1). However the issue is a Windows 7 popup when transferring to a portable device. It doesn't appear to mount the internal storage as a removable drive, which is what my HTC Desire does.

Thread archeology: this is an annoyance MS unthinkingly built in to W7.
Wonder if it's in W8? It's very anti-user, and the company refuses to fix it.

This page has 3 methods to break this unwanted behavior, though they are
explained in another context. The same methods should work.

Again, it's a problem with M$ not Android, and yes, it's 2013 now but the problem is still there.
