Is it possible for Android phones to detect PC and use PC drives for downloading?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I only have 4GB of space left on my SGS5 External SD Card and 2GB of space left on my SGS5 Internal SD Card. Is there a way I can download something onto my PC through SGS5 that is 10GB in size? 10GB won't fit on my SGS5 due to lack of space, BUT if it would download direclty onto of my PC's drives (like my HDD), then it would definitely fit. Is something like that possible???

I know USB Tethering would be easier, but I am afraid of extra costs...

I think it depends on how you're downloading this "thing" and what this "thing" is?

is it a torrent? or a compressed file?

Yes, it is a torrent. I think I found a way to get around it. This torrent consists of 50 .rar files. I can download several, cut & paste them onto my drives, and then download, cut & paste the rest.

It would still be nice if my SGS5 could detect my PC's drives as External SD cards or something like that.
