One of the biggest problems awaiting users of ASUS Android phone or ASUS Android tablet is copying files from their devices to Mac computer. The thing is that since the release of Android version 4.0, the latest does not support the USB Mass Storage protocol anymore. This protocol was replaced by MTP or Media Transfer Protocol. It is also worth noting that unlike USB Mass Storage, MTP is not a standard protocol as it's a Microsoft invention, so it's no surprise that if you want to access Android from Mac you will face the unpleasant thing, that Mac OS X does not support MTP protocol. Well, be that as it may, but simply to connect Android to Mac via USB cable is impossible, because your ASUS phone or Android ASUS tablet will not be recognized at all.
Here arises the question “What should I do if I want to transfer files from Android to Mac?” Don’t hurry to throw your ASUS Android phone, as there are always ways around.
Here are 2 tips how to bring together

In order to solve this problem, Google company released the Android File Transfer application. After installation, this application will automatically start when you connect your smartphone to your Mac and open a window with a list of files and folders that you can copy from your smartphone and vice versa by simply dragging and dropping it to and from the Finder’s tab. However, the app requires the screen of your Android ASUS phone to be unlocked, and if during copying of files your smartphone suddenly "falls asleep", then the process will have to start anew.
Another variant is to use third-party solutions if you want to have more advanced features. Take a closer look at Commander One. This is a handy app that allows you to make ASUS file transfer in the easier way as it supports connection via MTP. Simply use the cable and connect the phone to your Mac, make sure the device is in MTP mode and enjoy transferring files back and forth.
