View Full Version : [SOLVED] Nexus Does Not Show in MTP Mode in Windows Explorer

10-30-2013, 08:55 AM
Looking for help to the following problem: When I connect my nexus 5 or nexus 7 via usb to my computer I no longer can see them in "my computer". Windows notifies that a device is connected and recognized. USB debugging is on. I do see them in PTP mode, but not in MTP which is what is needed to transfer files. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling the nexus drivers, no change. I've had no such problem until recently. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I found a solution at xda, in case others need assistance: 1. Enable USB debugging: Go to phone settings -> About -> Tap build number repeatedly until developer menu is enabled. Go there and tick USB debugging.
2. On your PC, go to your device manager (when the Phone is plugged in and set to MTP), locate the phone, right click on it -> properties
3. go to the Driver tab
4. click Update Driver
5. click Browse my Computer for driver software
6. click Let my pick...
7. select USB Composite Device
8. finish up with the assistant
