    Unhappy Any way to access data from a broken Nexus 7 without using the USB?

    Hi, I know that this is probably a hopeless case, but you know what they say -don't lose hope. The micro USB port on our Nexus 7 is loose and not charging. We tried different chargers, but nothing works.

    In the shop they told us that they will send it back to England for the repair, but we should do a data back-up, just in case. Seems to be an impossible task for us. The tablet won't charge at all and when I try to connect the tablet to the laptop it doesn't recognize it. The micro USB port is basically busted and there is nothing we can do about that.

    So here I am, asking the final question before giving up - is there any way to access the data from the Nexus 7 tablet when it doesn't turn on and won't connect to the laptop?

    Yes, I do realize how silly that question is.

    Thanks!

    How much battery life does your tablet have left. If it has any, there are apps that allow you to access the drive over wifi

    You can also use bluetooth

    There is no battery left. I've been trying to charge it all day. Changing the positions of the cable, supporting it from all directions, putting pressure on it from different angles... nothing helps, it's done. It doesn't even start charging.

    So the data is basically lost, isn't it? Thanks for your reply anyway
