How to Access & Manage Files on Samsung Galaxy Gear

2 days back I managed to get my Galaxy Gear, and the very first thing I wanted to do is, to enjoy the Gear just like a smartphone. Galaxy Gear comes with limited apps and limited options, and basically is just an accessory to the Galaxy Note 3, but you can also play with it beyond the boundaries either by installing apps, placing files on it like images, videos and so on. When I wanted to access the SD card of the Gear, as it comes with 4 GB internal storage, I connected it to my laptop and found no removable media connected, so I had to find a solution and access files.

In case you don’t know about Galaxy Gear, let’s have a recap. Galaxy Gear is Samsung’s very first smart watch, that it introduced along with the Galaxy Note 3 at an event Held in Berlin on 4th of September, 2014. The device sports a beautiful small display, there is a 2 MP camera on the strap that actually adds charm to it. Gear gives you notifications of all your messages, calls and other updates, it also lets you make calls and receive calls with its small speaker and mic installed on the strap’s lock. Samsung also added Gear support to Note 2, S3 and S4 through the latest software updates.samsung-galaxy-gear_620x433

      @disqus_dyxZTHWS16:disqus Please make sure that you allow USB debugging mode and you allow it as well when it prompts on screen upon connecting Gear to the PC.
