    Hi,

    Whenever I connect my Galaxy Nexus to the PC via USB, the phone charges but does not show that phone is connected to the PC. So, I'm basically unable to transfer larger files (2gb +) to my phone. MTP is checked under USB computer connection. I've tried in both the front and back USB hubs of the PC. I would really appreciate a quick and usable solution.

    What version of windows are you using?

    When I plug mine in it automatically pops up the file folder.

    Did it as to install a driver or install one when you first plugged it in?

    Hrm, should work just fine. Tried another cable? Could always just go into start>computer>portable devices>galaxy nexus.

    Unfortunately, that doesn't help.

    I would uninstall the drivers, restart, then plug the Nexus in and have it reinstall. If for some reason it doesn't work you'll have to find the most up to date drivers yourself. After you install the drivers I would restart just to be sure.

    Are you rooted at all? Running any sort of custom kernel that allows fast USB charging?

    Yeah, are you running a custom rom? If you are, and fast charging is enabled, your computer won't "see" your phone. You'll need to disable it, disconnect, then reconnect.

    I too have been unable to connect to my windows 7 pc. I don't even remember it asking for drivers.. maybe but I don't remember. I tried both usb types, but nothing. My OG connected like a charm. Where could I find the drivers to install manually?
    I also tried connecting to a macbook air with no success either. It seemed to briefly recognise something was connected and brought up iphoto but then nothing appeared.
