Apologies as I've no doubt this has been done to death, but after searching the net for a couple of hours I cannot resolve it.
I've recently acquired a 1st gen Nexus 7, and I can't copy files onto it.
I'm using Windows 7, and it finds the device no problem, I can see the folders as you would a USB storage device, but it won't let me pull things off it or put things on it.
I've followed a vid on YouTube that showed how to access the developer options by tapping build and have enabled USB debugging, still no joy. I've tried MTP and PTP, no luck. I've tried 3 different (data) USB leads.
I've always opted for Android devices as I despise iTunes and how hard Apple make it to put whatever you want on the device, but this is taking the p1ss, it should be easy. I have no issues doing it with my Galaxy Note.
I'd love to root the Nexus but I gave up trying to figure it out for my Note (why so bloody complicated?) but all I really want to do is copy my ebooks, music and video onto my N7 so I can actually put it to use.

Re: Copying files
I suspect it might be the driver. To change it, in Device Manager, right click on the device and choose Update Driver Software..., choose Browse... and follow the prompts from there. If it complains about the new drivers, just have it install them anyway.
If the above doesn't work, then maybe try:
- Just try copying it anyway. Sometimes it complains about incompatibility or not being supported, but still works.
- Put the files in a folder and just try copying the folder.
- OTG cable, USB flash drive and Nexus Media Importer.
