Hi
I have a nexus 10, in the past I have been able to transfer films from my pc to the tablet just by using the cable it came with. However, when I now connect the tablet to my pc it doesn't recognise it, ie if I go to window explorer it doesn't appear. (I am running xp, but I have tried it with a different cable on a computer running windows 7 and it's still not recognised). I have gone to settings, storage, menu and have ticked MTP, but still nothing. Has anybody got any other ideas as to what I do?
Thanks
Liz

Hello Liz,
You need to make sure the cable is CHARGE AND SYNC. It should have a little 3 wire insignia on one or both ends. It will work perfectly. Alan
