    I did a quick search on the forums for a solution to this problem, but I came up empty, which makes me think that I'm a complete *****. Luckily, I'm sure that someone will be able to post a quick solution for me and then I can quietly remove this post from the forums.

    My problem is that I would like to transfer files from my Asus laptop to my Nexus 10. I know that I could use Google Drive, but I'd prefer to not have to upload a 300 mb file and then download the same. I assumed that by connecting my laptop to my Nexus 10 using the USB drive that the device comes with would work. It didn't. I'm thinking that I'm missing some drivers somewhere, but none installed and when I ran a google search, nothing helpful came up.

    So, what do I do? Is it simply impossible to transfer files through a USB cord? Or is my laptop simply a failure in yet a new and colorful way?

    1. if you have not touched "developer options" ignore step 1. if yes, then make sure USB debugging is disabled in developer option (its disabled by default)
    2. connect your nexus 10 to PC using USB cable
    3. go to settings-->Storage-->menu(three dots on top right)-->USB mass storage--> make sure MTP is checked.

    nexus 10 hdd should appear on your computer.

    AirDroid is another option. Works over WiFi and you don't have to connect your N10 with USB.

    Sorry, I know this thread is super old... Apparently my Nexus 10 has problem with files transferring.

    I checked the Developer options that the USB debugging is disabled. I tried the MTP option, as well as downloaded the AirDroid application in both my PC and my tablet. None works. I can't transfer files. AT ALL.

    I don't know what happen... can anyone give me some advice?

    I got this tablet for a year now; I didn't have problem with transferring files... and then I got problem trying to even create New Folder and renaming it. And I decided to do a factory reset recently, creating New Folder and renaming it work but not transferring file.

    Help~
