    Default Got the Nexus 10 and I love it but Windows Vista will not acknowledge it without the drivers

    Anyone run into this issue? I want to copy some things over to it but the "device" is unrecognizable with Windows and I can't view it. I've searched for drivers but I haven't been able to find anything on the Interwebs.

    Thanks

    try this first. go to settings-->storage-->[menu]-->USB mass storage-->Check MTP

    try again. if this doesn't work let us know. dont forget to open notification and touch to enable usb

    :/ Still no go, MTP was checked, I tried PTP but it still came up with an error on my PC saying could not locate drivers please check vendor website and such. I also have another PC running XP and it is saying the same thing.

    do you have the sdk drivers?? if not here it is

    extract the above file to c:\ or something

    then open device manager. connect N10 to PC and look for the device in device manager.
    Then right click and update drivers. follow my guide here "0. Setting up your PC:" and section b.4)

    in the guide instead of Select "Android ADB Interface" select MTP. click OK and Install.

    Sorry about this, I should have updated my Windows a while back

    Okay, I have updated my "Android ADB Interface" device with the "android_winusb" driver and that worked, however when I try to select the "MTP" device and do the same it says that it cannot find any driver software for your device :/

    Should I just upgrade to the $40 Windows 8 Pro on Microsoft.com and cross my fingers?

    So I went ahead and upgraded to Windows 8, holy crap that will get some getting used to

    Still unable to have it load as an MTP device but it will recognize now as a PTP camera device which is all I need just to get some files onto it.

    Thanks for your help still1!

    I just got into the same problem. My drivers suddenly stopped working today. Nexus 10 was charging when plugged in to USB port but Windows was not recognizing the device. I tried different drivers and nothing. Saw your post, tried different things and figured it out - it was the USB extension cord that I used today. When I removed the extension cord, everything started working again.

    I was thinking that if you don't use extension cord, maybe there's something about your computer's (motherboard's?) USB connection that does the same thing as my extension cord was doing (whatever it is). But if that's the case, the only options for you would be to try different USB ports (maybe back of the computer) or just try a different computer altogether.

    it does seem the issue is with the USB ports. I run windows 8 and front ports don't seem to recognise it but back ports do!!
