Transferring content using a computer

You can transfer a large amount of data to your new device from your old device using a computer.

  1. Connect both your new device and old device to a computer using a USB cable.
    On any Android devices, drag down the status bar, tap the USB connection setting notification, and then tap [Tap for more options.] > [File Transfer].
    If your old device is an iOS device, follow the on-screen instructions.
  2. On the computer, select which files to transfer from your old device, and then copy and paste or drag and drop the files to a location on your new device.
    When you copy files from your old device to your new device, make sure that the folder names are the same on both devices.


  • Always use a Sony-branded USB cable, since other types of USB cables may pose increased safety risks.
  • Make sure the USB cable is completely dry.
