Have purchased Android TV media box,which works fine,but my PC will not recognise it?Have checked device manager but nothing appears to be showing,which might be the item.
I have purchased apps etc which are on PC,but would like to transfer them along with music onto Android box,any advice gratefully accepted..Thanks

Pretty normal behavior, they basically are players, and some network better than others. Try putting your Android supported music in a shared folder on your PC and try accessing them.

Not really,it appears that windows and android do not interact!Basically its an Amazon fire stick,but except for the info already loaded any extra is a no go!Its Ok for Netflix but no other similar "pay" to stream systems.It was an attempt to update my TV!!!

However it does have Google power store which is loaded with apps,so I may find what Im looking for there.....

No idea,Amazon? as for apps Itunes for starters.
If it is Amazon that you should be able to login through you Amazon account. iTunes the same.

May have to install the App for them.

Correct

You may need to create a google account if you do not already have one to use the some of the features.

A fire stick will network with Windows, haven't owned one but researched when considering one. Kodi is a popular app to access your shared pc files with a Fire stick.

Re your original post, PC apps wont work on Android, you will need ones written for Android.
