    Either or both. Depends on which has your files you need access to.

    Thanks Frederuco! It's my Windoze box that has the files I want on it... So far now I have been successful using a File Manager HD network connection to the IP address of my Windows box, and copying 4 MP3s over, but then File Manager HD stops... I thought it would be easier than this... :-)

    I have not tried File Manager HD lately. I have been using ES File Explorer because it can do FTP, Dropbox and also it can replace Root Explorer.

    Give that a shot and see if it works for you.

    +1 on ES File Explorer. I find it much easier to use for transferring files on my WAN and it always works.

    Samba is essentially a means of file sharing. I'm running Samba on my Linux server, which runs as an automatic backgrounded daemon that starts during system startup. I wrote up some quick instructions here on basically what I do to get things fired up with the help of a quick and simple Samba GUI:

    sudo apt-get install samba
    sudo apt-get install system-config-samba
    If needed, open Nautilus and create the folder you want to share with Samba. If the folder already exists (aka home folder) skip this step.
    Open "samba" GUI (system-config-samba)
    Add samba user
    Add samba share
    Select appropriate settings (writeable, access list, etc)
    Restart samba service (sudo service smbd restart)

    Then to access:
    Win: Start, run, //192.168.Server.IP
    OSX: Connect to server, smb://192.168.Server.IP
    Nix: Nautilus, CTRL + L, smb://192.168.Server.IP
    Profit

    While the Nexus 7 is slightly different, this is a list of things we recommended to people who couldn't get their MOTO Xoom to connect to their computers. You may want to try a few and see if they work. I suspect if we can find something online like MotoHelper, it would help. (Disregard the obvious recommendations from this list that do not apply)

    Since some people are having issues trying to get Windows to recognize their Xoom, I've compiled a list of suggestions found in both these forums as well as across the net.

    1) Disable Anti-virus when installing the moto helper (to avoid install problems) & re-enable afterwards - standard practice for installing things
    2) Enable USB debugging
    3) Disable or allow an exception to any firewalls for the MotoHelper (theory here being that the MotoHelper doesn't actually install the driver, but instead connects to the Moto site to download the most up to date ones)
    4) Only use the USB connection on the rear of the laptop/desktop << one that is linked directly to the motherboard and not a secondary USB port. Also, try different USB ports on the back. The front ports may not carry as much power.
    5) Use the USB cable that came with the Xoom as others may be older, not rated the same, etc. (it's happened a few times in the forums already)
    6) Install Windows Media Player 11. (you do not need to activate or even open it, just install it - something in the package gets some people up and working)
    7) Make sure when installing the Moto Helper software, you do NOT have the Xoom connected, then reboot the computer and when it comes back up, then hook up USB cable. <<That is the proper way to install ANY driver - install first, then hook up device.
    8) Try installing the umdf drivers from Microsoft here: http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=71641&/umdf.exe
    9) Right click on My Computer, then Select properties > hardware > Device Manager. If the PC is recognizing XOOM as a MTP device, you should be able to see it under "Portable Devices" and copy items to and from Xoom. If it is not there, right click "Portable devices" and select "scan for hardware changes" and see if that causes Xoom to shows up.
    10) Some newer ICS kernels may have an option to allow "Fast USB charging" where you can charge off your USB port as quickly as your AC plug. But allowing this option will disable the standard USB connection to your device and show up as "INTF2" attempting to install drivers. If you uncheck this, it goes back to the standard USB MTP connection type.

    Hopefully, one of these will help resolve your problem. I'll add more to this as I come across any possibilities.

    Very true. I'm a big fan of Dropbox.

    That said, if there's users out there who might be running your own Linux based server at home, take a look into OwnCloud. Think Dropbox... but on your own personal computer, limited only to the size HDD's you have in the box. My own 300GB cloud that is on my property? I'll take it...
