    I'm interested too, I'd like to copy my titanium backup over but I know the phone doesn't support USB Mass Storage.

    I took the entire DCIM folder from my Droid X and put it on my Nexus.


    No, it doesn't have USB mass storage but MTP behaves the same way depending on your Windows OS.

    Do you use Windows Explorer with MTP or do you have to use Windows Media Player or something? I don't have my Galaxy Nexus yet so I'm curious, I know I could just put my files on my dropbox or something and download them to my phone but I'd rather copy them.

    All I did was drag and drop to the pictures folder. Was pretty seamless /shrug

    I use it with Windows explorer but I've read you have to use media player depending on your OS, I have windows 7.

    ok dezy, im having no luck at all. I was able to drag and drop the apk for volume+ in but I can in no way shape or form get pictures onto the gnex. Obviously you didnt have a problem, and it could very easily be my computer, but how did you do it, as retarded as it sounds, step by step? USB bugging disabled or enabled? Did you go from your old phone (d1 in my case) straight drag and drop using windows to your new phone? did you copy the whole dcim folder from the d1 into pictures gnex?

    This shouldnt be this difficult... im typically good at this stuff
