Learn how to connect to PC on your Sony Xperia Z1. Connect your device to a computer and start transferring pictures, music and other types of files. The easiest ways to connect are using a USB cable or Bluetooth wireless technology.

When you connect your device to the computer using a USB cable, you are prompted to install software on the computer, for example, the PC Companion application on a PC or the Sony Bridge for Mac application on an Apple Mac computer. PC Companion and Sony Bridge for Mac help you access additional computer applications to transfer and organize media files, update your device, synchronize device content, and more.

Note: You might not be able to transfer some copyright-protected material between your device and a computer.

Transferring and handling content using a USB cable

  • Use a USB cable connection between a computer and your device for easy transfer and management of your files. Once the two devices are connected, you can drag and drop content between your device and the computer, or between your device’s internal storage and SD card, using the computer’s file explorer.
  • If you’re transferring music, video, pictures or other media files to your device, it’s best to use the Media Go application on your computer. Media Go converts media files so that you can use them on your device.
