paste from pc to home folders over usb
Hi, I can copy files from my N5 to my pc over usb, but I can't paste into the phone's home folders. Is this possible? TIA
@marklynch Ooops, sorry, too much multitasking! I meant the opposite: I can't copy files from the phone to the pc.

@marklynch Hmmm What PC OS are you using? I've never had any problems using Ubuntu.
Do make sure though that the phone is "active", i.e. that you've swiped the welcome screen away. That ought to show the Nexus 5 in your "files". Then, for me, it just acts like an external hard drive.
Your USB cable's okay?
@3arn0wl I can see the files and paste into folders, but if I try to drag or copy/paste to my pc I get "Could not read file /Nexus 5/Nexus 5/Pictures......". Running Antergos arch linux, cable's ok.

That's strange. I've just dragged and dropped both ways.
Sorry, I can't help. No doubt others here will have a better idea.
I've just tried transferring files on Manjaro, works fine both ways, so this is Antergos specific. I had similar problems with my printer.
