    When I select the pics on my computer to move back to my phone, it wont let me. I have opened the folder where all the pics are and select move. But then it doesnt let me move it to the phone. Any ideas?

    Is there any sort of message that pops up or does it just hang?

    No message. I just click on move file. Then I click on Galaxy Nexus when it prompts me to select where you want to move the pic. Then the "Move" button gets greyed out?

    What OS are you using?

    Have you just tried dragging it to the Nexus folder?

    My Computer

    Scanners and Cameras

    Galaxy Nexus

    In the Galaxy Nexus folders my pics are there. Shouldn't they have copied over to my phone automatically?

    You have to move your files over to your Nexus. Plugging in the Nexus won't start an automatic transfer.

    It looks like you're using Windows. So I'll try to walk you through it.

    1. Plug in your Nexus and a window should pop up asking to open the folder or not
    2. Find your pictures on your PC
    3. Drag the files over to the Nexus folder
    3a. Right click the file/folder and hit "send to" (Galaxy Nexus)
    4. A small window will show up showing the transfer rate
    5. All done

    No MTP mode should be fine.

    Would help if you let me know what OS you're using. And sometimes a quick restart will help. If that doesn't work you'll have to find the drivers online.
