    Default Re: PC recognizes Nexus but then I can't access my storage

    In windows 10, I had to uninstall the device and I chose to delete the driver as well. As soon as I scanned for hardware changes I got the windows what do you want to do with this device pop-up and i chose browse files and it worked. It was using a driver from google from 2013 before so after getting rid of it I had no problems.

    Just in case someone else is having the problem without getting a solution just try:

    -Settings > Developer options > Select USB Configuration > Charging only and then > MTP again.

    Works like charm!

    Default Re: PC recognizes Nexus but then I can't access my storage

    I do not have this option on my device, I have recently upgraded to android 6.0 and am not sure if that is what caused this. other ideas?

    Update - managed to find this option in Developer Options on my device, Android 6.0 must have changed things slightly.

    Default Re: PC recognizes Nexus but then I can't access my storage

    The only way I could get my nexus 5 to work was to go into settings >> Developer Options >> scroll down into the networking section and select "Select USB Configuration", mine was already set for MTP (Media Transfer Protocol) but I had to select PTP and then select back to MTP, then everything was recognized on my computer.

    Default Re: PC recognizes Nexus but then I can't access my storage

    Hi thanks, It worked only once. After disconnected from the PC the storage was lost again, I had to repeat the setting steps each time I wanted to connect Nexus 7 to the PC. Is there any way to make the setting permanent?
    Thanks Eva

    OK found it. You just need to swipe down from the top of the screen when plugged in with USB. Then you can select your USB transfire options.
    I hope this will help other people in the future...

    the three dots on the top right don't display what you're describing. I have a Nexus 7 and selecting the three dots gives a pop up stating Help & Feedback. Not much use to me I'm afraid.

    You are correct, with Marshmallow release it is a swipe down from the top to allow file transfer.

    thanks

    Wouldn't have worked that out on my own.
