    Default Nexus 10 drag & drop with windows 8 on pc

    Hi,

    Another newbie to the Nexus 10 and also technologically challenged...........

    Apologies if this has been asked before but I wanted to drag & drop some files to the N10 so hooked it up to my laptop via the usb cable, however the laptop wouldn't read the N10. The laptop has Windows 8 operating system.

    I tried it on my desktop (with Vista operating system) and it worked.

    My question is: Is there an issue with Windows 8 & the Nexus 10 and do I need to install something on my laptop in order for it to read the N10?

    Go easy on us but any help would be gratefully received!!!

    Cheers
