    When you first plug your phone in to your computer (PC/Mac?) you may have to change the USB setting from MTP to PTP. Pull the status bar down and select "Connected as a..." If it says "...Media Device" try changing that to Camera (PTP).

    Let me know how it works. I've only had my Nexus for 23 hours so I'm still learning a lot.

    You may also need some drivers. I'll see if I can find a link to them.
