    Default Re: Can't transfer files from PC to phone via USB!

    I am running stock GB and have been pulling my hair out trying to figure out how to get connected to my computer for access to all my files. I called Sprint they issued an e-ticket b/c they figured the phone was bad. Then i tried my Kindle cord and it worked perfectly. I can view all folders on my phone.I didn't have to do anything, it just showed up on my laptop when i plugged it in.

    Sorry if this is covered elsewhere but this seems to be the right place for this.

    I have a new Nexus 4. I can connect it OK to my Windows PC. But I can't transfer/copy any of the files from the phone to it. I just get this message:
    "The requested file is in use."

    I did a soft reboot thinking some app had the files open (one is a PDF I want to transfer) but nothing I know of is open. Any ideas? Thanks,

    When I pull down the notification bar, the options I get are:

    Connected As:
    Media device (MTP) - which is checked
    Camera (PTP) - which is not checked

    There are no other choices.

    From Windows File Explorer, I can see the Nexus 4 listed under Computers. I can click on Internal Storage and see all the folders, including Download, Pictures, backups, etc.

    I found out something new -- I can drag files from Windows into these folders. I just can't drag out the one document from the Nexus Download folder out that I wanted. This is a PDF that I emailed myself as a test. I did, in email, "view" the PDF at one point. Could that be the problem? Android thinks that the file is open and won't let me copy it? I thought Android shut down all the apps after I dragged them off the taskbar (sorry whatever Android calls the screen with the two file folder icons to close apps) and I did a soft reboot by powering down and up again. But maybe there are tasks/threads still running associated with the PDF? Looks like the problem may be isolated to this.

    Thanks for your help and response. I'm still new to Android as of this weekend but really liking the Nexus 4.

    having problem connecting my samsung galaxy s2 to my computer as a disk drive. have been on every forum on the internet and still cant figure it out. it is. it is a SCH-R760 phone and a HP computer running Windows XP. i have downloaded the driver from the samsung website. its a brand new phone )(2 weeks old) with a brand new samsung usb cord so im doubting anything needs cleaning on the phone and iv cleaned the usb port on my computer several times in my quest to make this work. i read alot about going to development and checking usb debugging to make sure its on then going back to homepage before connecting via usb cable. i do this and it says MTP initializing in the status bar on the phone... but when i pull the status bar down and click on mtp connected, nothing happens. i have no option to switch it to mass storage like everyone else seems to thing i would.. iv also tried the method where you go to wireless&networks/usb utilities/ then click the connect storage to PC button, then plug in my cord when prompted and nothing happens then either. my computer makes noises like a plugged in a flash drive or something but no removable disks or anything shows up when i open up My Computer. ive been working feverishly on this for the past two weeks trying to fix it, to no avail. please someone help me out

    i had this problem for a long time awhile back. didn't think too much of it until i was in desperate need to connect my phone to my home pc.i didn't have this problem at work.

    all i did was google "epic touch 4g drivers," or some variation, on my home pc and installed the drivers that showed up in the search results. I haven't had a problem since. My wife's phone is the same way and she has an iMac, so I'm going to have to do the same thing on her iMac. Hopefully it works.

    Sorry for such a "bland" post but it worked. Hope it helps for others who are experiencing the problem.

    I could never solve this problem on my phone, but I did figure out a solution that got my pictures and screen captures off my phone. Thought I would share it here in case it would save anyone else's sanity, like it saved my mine.

    The solution is...Dropbox.

    Get the app. Upload your photos to it. Viola. No USB cable required. Life is good.

    Or, if you have a router, you can WIFI File Transfer (from the play store) to access the files on your phone.
