If you have a Windows or mac based Laptop, you can install Samsung's Kies software to make the transfer. Your Note3 will require Kies version 3 which you can download here:

Looking for reliable Android app to transfer any file from Samsung Note3 to USB stick as the only way to control what and where is done all related?

I have a Samsung Note3 and an usual USB stick memory and also OTG USB cable to properly connect them. I used Total Commander with its Paragon plugin dedicated for USB hosting transfers. However after last release of Paragon plugin, there is no way to complete this transfer from phone to the stick as before although the stick is recognized. I am now looking for another way more reliable to do same. The problem is that on the total commander folders list there is no way to localize that USB hosted stick as connected to find its path to complete the transfer. As also most of IT skilled Samsung owners we all hate that stupid Kies huge app overcharging our laptop systems with huge amount of data for a simple but also weak transfer, with limited type files capability. I use also another smartphone by Archos, much smarter than Samsung as that phone is simply recognized directly as a USB storage device with no driver needs to install when connect to laptop USB port

Hi, my Note3 is showing black screen?

When I start it, it shows me the Samsung logo and takes ages to start then once it is started it shows black screen. I can scroll the top menu and see but the main screen isn't showing up. I tried taking out the battery and press on button and then restart but no luck. Then when I pressed volume down, the center, and start button together, it is taking me to custom OS download mode, where to continue I am worried if I might lose all my data?
