    The guidebook also gives these steps to get it recognized by Windows:

    You can use a USB cable to connect your tablet to a Windows computer and transfer music, pictures, and other files in both directions. This connection uses the MTP protocol, which is supported by most recent versions of Windows.

    If you are using USB tethering, you must turn that off before you can use USB to transfer files between your tablet and computer.

    When you connect your tablet to the USB port on your computer, its USB storage is mounted as a drive and appears on your computer
    screen. You can now copy files back and forth as you would using any other external device.

    When you’re finished, simply disconnect the tablet by unplugging the USB cable.

    -To turn USB tethering on or off, go to Settings > Wireless & networks > More > Tethering & portable hotspot.

    -To change your tablet’s USB connection options, go to Settings > Device > Storage > Menu > USB computer connection.

    Give that a shot and see if it works for you.

    I had problems accessing my Nexus 7 from Windows XP but I solved it by installing Windows Media Player 11.
    Hope this information can help other people.

    On my N7, Settings > Wireless & networks > More > does not show Tethering, Just Airplane Mode, VPN, NFC, and Android Beam



    I've always used ES File Explorer, and it's fine, but WiFi is slow compared to USB Mass-Storage mode that I could do on some other devises...

    For music, the easiest way, by far, is to upload your music library from a PC or Mac to Google Play Music. Then it's all available for streaming, and you can "pin" any files that you want to store on the Nexus. For playback, you can choose to stream online, or play (and display) only music that is stored on the Nexus.

    For other types of files, use Google Drive, or using the Chrome browser, cloud print from another device to the Nexus.

    There is one thing I want to point out:

    The Nexus 7 comes up as an 'External Device' on my computer, but when you double-click on it, it opens as an separate drive, and double-clicking again shows the files you can move to.


    Not sure if that helps....

    I'll check it out when I get home... I was able to get the Asus USB driver installed on my PC (it's a Windows Server 2003 converted to run as a workstation, and upgraded Server 2003 to Service Pack 2, which gave me Windows Media Slayer.. er.. Player 10 - so I'm not sure if I'm feeling the love yet, or not. I did update my XP machine to Windows 7, which finds the Nexus 7 just fine. It's this whole ext4 -vs- FAT32 and MTP thing - older versions of Windows seem to have trouble with it. Thanks for your tip to try!!

    Must be a Win7 thing. My XP machines don't rcognize the N7 as an external drive the way I'd hoped. The only 'kosher' way to transfer stuff is via Media Slayer (Player) 11 or so, and it's worse than iTunes! It won't transfer files it can't play, like pdf's.

    Is there a driver for USB mode that's missing?

    You could use airdroid app? It's free. Most likely I am guessing its a driver issue

    After hours trawling through various recommendations to get data from my Windows XP (SP3) PC, I found this site helped me straight through ; No rooting, No warranty worries etc

    Connecting Google Nexus 7 to Windows XP Laptop : Solved | Alok Agrawal's Blog

    Hope this helps.

    (to get to Device Manager on the PC, go Control Panel>System>Hardware and open Device Manager)
