  1. Install this Windows Hotfix on your computer and then restart (not sure if needed).
  2. Install Samba Filesharing on your Android phone using any of the following methods:
  3. Open Samba Filesharing and click Allow when prompted for a Superuser Request.
  4. Menu > Settings > Password > type desired [password]
  5. Username > type desired [username]
  6. Back > Menu > Enable > OK
  7. You will then see something like this
  8. Windows Key > [Type what you see on the second line of the phone. e.g. \\192.168.1.100]
  9. Type [username] and [password] you entered in the previous steps to finally access your Android phone.
  10. That's it. Post a comment if you a question.
