    Why does it take 10 years to transfer things to/from the Nexus? Is it because its internal memory now? I know I could transfer things to my SD card on my OGD1 about quadruple the time it takes me to move the same amount of files to the Nexus. I tried making a folder and I timed it, it took 30 seconds to make the folder. What the??? Just look at my avatar, thats the face I make every time I move files to the Nexus. :p

    I have no problem making folders or transferring files. I made a folder and transferred a 102 page pdf in less than 5 sec.

    I've had this same issue. I found that using a usb 2 port does make it go a lot faster buy still not the speed you would expect. I know that others using custom roms have reported that they don't suffer from this issue.

    I do use custom roms and kernels and I've not experienced this issue at all. Things transfer just as fast as with my Bionic and my Droid 1 - Just providing you with another data point.

    Have not experienced this issue you speak of personally. But I have a friend with one that was transferring slow and was getting lockups manipulating files and folders on the internal memory from the PC. It seemed to come and go, then got worse after only a few days with the phone. I knew the verizon store rep and he replaced the phone under warranty and the new one is just fine. DancingNexus
    Its either the PC or the phone, have you tried another computer?

    Are you using the cable that comes with the phone? Some folks seem to get slower speeds with anything but the stock cable.

    Is your port USB2?

    Have you installed any sorts of drivers?

    If you have access to wifi, you can transfer files using it.

    Thing is, I used my grandmother's upgrade to get this phone so there is no Warranty for me. My laptop is still worth about $1,500~ and yes, it has USB2.0. Oh well I guess I'll just deal with it.

    Doesn't matter who's upgrade got the phone. Doesn't change the warranty. I have a family plan with 4 lines. When somebody wants a new phone we simply see who has an available upgrade and use it.

    Yes but they are on your plan, i have my own plan and paid verizon through my grandmothers account. So, they said that there may be a way to transfer the phone to my grandmothers account again and get warranty, but there are no guarantees.

    Try another phone rep. Your phone is covered by a warranty.

    Make sure u are using the cable that came with the phone. The other ones for me make it so slow.

    Don't warranty exchange it. Do a factory reset. This seems to be a somewhat common problem with the GNex. For some unknown reason the transfer rate of files is extremely slow or zero on some GNexs out of the box...mine was this way. I did a factory reset, and now all us good. Perhaps it has to do with the way they format the storage over there in Korea!

    yes!
    I started using AirDroid this week and LOVE it! Really wonderful stuff. I haven't tried to transfer any big files yet (movies, etc.), but it's handled everything I've done quickly.

    I had extra time today, started to do a full backup of the internal storage and after a bit it stopped working and the PC could no longer "see" the files in the phone.

    7 gigs transferred before it stopped.

    I am under doctors orders to stay quiet and thus haven't had time to troubleshoot the issue.

    When I subsequently tried to transfer an old Nandroid backup to my netbook with wifi explorer, it took forever and I gave up for now.

    I am having a similar issue as well. I'll start by telling you my phone is unlocked and rooted but I'm running the ClockWork 5.5.0.4-toro factory image. Today I connected my GNex to my PC via USB running Win7 for the purpose of moving some old photos from my OG Droid to the new phone. Was on camera mode to access files and went to DCIM. First tried to create a new folder using my PC. Created it but couldn't rename it. Had my SD card inserted in my computer and tried to drag and drop photos but continually got errors forcing me to cancel and one of those pop-up errors on my phone about android process media stopping. Searched error in xda and it said to clear data from Media Storage app but got the same error when opening it in settings but eventually it worked(moving photos didn't work I am referring to clearing the data). Gave up on manually manipulating files using the USB and used the Samba app to do everything I wanted using wi-fi however I don't think I should have to. Any thoughts?

    Warning, though minor warming, if you clear data in Media Storage you will lose all your ringtone and notification settings.

    Since reading about clearing Media Storage, I have twice cleared this to allow the PC to see the files on the phone.

    This morning I tried to copy my Nandroid backups to a hard drive. After six or so backups, the transfer stopped. I cleared Media Storage, rebooted, the phone, and then was able to finish backing up the rest of of the phone.

    Thanks for bringing this to my attention.

    Enable USB debugging. This made both of our Nexus phone go from slow to very fast. Using my Win7 laptop I can transfer 6GB in a few minutes using a cheap Rim cord I bought on Amazon.
