This is the old-fashioned way, since today we could transferring contents wirelessly, but some end-users still use this method as it’s familiar and they can not use any other method.

However, we have no idea whether this desktop applications has support all new released LG devices.
Another way is to download a standalone driver installer, so you will only install the required driver, not the others. It’s easy and straightforward setup, as the file size is small. You can compare with PC Suite which has a larger file size since it has some additional features, which we do not really need.
