Sony Xperia S (also known as the Sony Ericsson Xperia NX in Japan) is packed with multimedia tricks, like Watch Now application, Small Apps, Splash Proof, Universal IR Remote Control with Macro Functionality and more. As for the video playback, Xperia S can provide high-quality video effect with big display and HD 1280*720 pixels. But it’s a pity that, some Xperia users encountered the connection issue between PC and Sony Xperia S.

I just bought Xperia S. I tried to connect it with my Mac. The phone appears 'Internal Storage Connected', however, I cannot find the disc mounted in the Finder. I want to transfer my files between my phone and my Mac. Please advice. Thank you.

Did you also met some connection problems between your PC/Mac and Xperia S, for example, your Xperia cannot be detected? If you want to Connect Sony Xperia S to PC/Mac and sync movies, photos to Xperia S without an trouble, you can follow the the below easiest way to solve it.

Part I: On PC with PC Companion

1. Open a process monitoring app on the phone (like OSMonitor (see Google Play))
2. Connect the phone to the PC
3. Monitor the MtpApp process and wait for it to finish (i.e: stop using CPU time on the phone and disappearing from the top of the processes list on OSMonitor). Don't worry about the PC Companion error message about failing to detect the phone, just close it by clicking the OK button and wait for the MtpApp process on the phone to finish.
4. Once the MtpApp process finished, go in Start -> Control panel -> Hardware and Sound -> Device Manager
5. On Device Manager you should see the Xperia S or a device named "MTP USB" (or something like this) with a yellow exclamation mark. Right click on it and select "deactivate", wait for it to be deactivated (should display a bottom arrow on the icon), and right click again and select "activate"
6. That's it your phone should be detected.

After successfully connecting Sony Xperia S to Windows, you can sync Xperia content with folders on your disk or just simply drag and drop any type of files between your Xperia phone and your PC.

Part II: On Mac with Sony Bridge for Mac

The following should only be done the first time:

1. Open Sony Bridge for Mac and go in Preferences
2. Deselect the option to start Sony Bridge for Mac when a phone is connected

This avoid Sony Bridge for Mac to start automatically and so too early before the phone is ready.

Once this done you just have to:

1. Open a process monitoring app on the phone (like OSMonitor (see Google Play))
2. Connect the phone to the PC
3. Monitor the MtpApp process and wait for it to finish (i.e: stop using CPU time on the phone and disappearing from the top of the processes list on OSMonitor)
4. Once the MtpApp process finished, open Sony Bridge for Mac and wait for it to detect the phone (it can take some time)

When the Sony Xperia S and Mac connection is finished, it’s time for you to transfer media files between Xperia S and your Mac.
