    I think it's called parallels. Let's you run a virtual windows box. Don't know if it hooks in the USB port to manage devices.

    What Android have you got. You have a decent chance at being able to manage Android without having to do a wired sync. I always have.

    I'll look to see if there is a driver for the Mac to see the DHD when I get in the house.

    Dropbox though, is a perfect tool for this need.

    Even from my PC, I prefer to do things wirelessly.

    You can also set up an SMB (I think that's the term, a windows file share on your Mac) share folder and apps like ES File Explorer can hook in and move files back and fourth.

    Option 1:
    The simple way, use Dropbox.

    Option 2:
    A samba share on the Mac isn't actually a difficult thing. Can someone here please
    provide detailed instructions.
