Getting some odd issues when trying to transfer photos from my previous phone over to the Galaxy Nexus. I copied the photos from the older phone to my PC via USB then proceeded to do the reverse by plugging in the Galaxy Nexus. I'm able to open the internal storage via file explorer but if I try and drag any photos into the "picture" directory, the copy process just hangs.
Do I need to do this by using some other method because the storage is internal?
I tried copying a good amount of them and then I tried just sending over 1. This issue happened for both scenarios.
I'm going to try on another computer. I'm thinking that some of the drivers that I've installed to try and get around the "waiting for device" issue when I tried to unlock the phone is causing some issues. I don't know if it's possible but perhaps I've somehow setup the device as a usb device...when it's not really one - shrug
Mine did the same thing when trying to copy/paste to the pictures directory. I created another directory, outside of the picture directory and they transferred perfectly. Something to do with the picture directory on my phone.
I was having the same issues trying to copy roughly 30 pics. I was able to copy 3 + one video before the transfer completely stalled. Here's what I did that worked:
- Went to Samsung's website and downloaded the drivers for the Nexus from here
- Installed the drivers in my PC. I did get an error on BT device not recognized but I ignored it.
- Connected the Nexus, USB mode in MTP.
- The Nexus got detected and the drivers loaded.
- Copied one image to test and it worked (before it would simply stall). Transferred all remaining images in an instant.
I am now copying 4GB worth of MP3s and things seem pretty stable.
BTW, kudos to folks at droidforums.net where I got the links and pointers to fix this issue.
I am having problems with this also. I seem to be able to copy and paste a few at a time but then it eventually locks up and not only stops copying, but prevents me from even seeing the directory until i unplug then plug my nexus back in again
If you delete the "Camera" folder in the DCIM directory, and then recreate it will work fine. There seems to be some weird permissions issue on that folder. I was able to copy with no issues after doing that.
On my wife's GN I installed mtp on my Ubuntu 11.10 machine at home to copy over her files from her old DX, but since all of mine files was here at work on my Ubuntu 11.04 I ended up using adb push and had no issues pushing 629 of my pictures/videos.
Same issue here, the copy process just stalls after 3 pics then says the device has stopped responding or has been disconnected. Mass storage would have worked much better! Had this happen on a Win 7 64 and Win 7 32 machine. Already frustrated with this phone. This is BS!
