    Ya, that's probably the best solution so far...

    Rename/Delete the ".mkv" on the file and then re-enter the ".mkv" when it's on the Galaxy Nexus.


    Thanks!

    I have the same problem with my Samsung Galaxy S and using Windows 7, so I just change .mkv to .avi, and they work fine. No need to change it back on the phone.

    That doesn't work at all here via AirDroid or via USB/MTP transfer.

    I can't believe no one has figured this out yet...isn't there a way????

    So turns out each device has a certain amount of files it will let you transfer before it locks up. So some people will just move one or two files until they see any issues others get hundreds...

    here is what i have found works like a champ.
    If when you plug your device into your pc and it is in MTP mode then select the option to sync witb windows media player in the pop up window that shows up. If it does not give you that option then choose more options and scroll down to galaxy nexus and use the drop down menu next to it to select sync with windows media player. I have tested music pictures and videos and all sync perfectly. This must be done in reverse also for moving files back to your computer or you can simply put the device in camera mode after you plug it in to your pc and select transfer pictures or videos
    If your trying to push non media files then the old drag and drop method directly into the galaxy nexus internal storage folders works fine...
    I was glad that i figured this out in order to accomplish my own tranfers i needed but irritating that i feel like i am using a ios device that has to run through itunes.

    I don't have any problem transfer any amount of any other file, except for .mkv files.

    Have you tried transferring a .mkv file on the Galaxy Nexus???

    Default Re: Galaxy Nexus won't transfer mkv video files???

    Howdy all, I have the Galaxy Nexus and also cannot copy .mkv files, however, I have been able to cut and paste them to the Nexus, no issue so far with any other files, I am using Win7 x64.
    Hope this helps someone!

    Default Re: Galaxy Nexus won't transfer mkv video files???

    Howdy again, If you are using the Shark 007 Codec Pack in Win7 x64, open the Settings Application x64 file (Run as Administrator) and go to the MKV Tab, then Tick the Disable the DivX Media Foundation splitter. The DivX MF splitter will do the thumbnailing when enabled box and this will allow you to copy and paste or send to the Nexus. Tested and working well.
    Hope this also helps!

    One work around is deleting the extension then adding it back after the copy.

    With Jelly Bean, I ran into this problem with mp4 and even jpg.

    The easiest and most effective method to transfer MKV's would be to archive them into a zip file using Winrar. After that download zarchiver from Google Play and extract them Via your phone using that application. Best solution for me so far saves me both time and trouble.

    I noticed that with USB debugging enabled on my phone file transfers would be hit or miss and often they would fail. Maybe try to disable USB debugging.
    Android systems (including the lastest Android Jelly Bean) compatible Memory cards have a limit of 4GB per file because of the FAT32 file system. For eBooks of course thats no problem. But for multimedia its a huge disadvantage to iPhone or iPad for example. 720p and 1080p movies today can be up to 10GB, and thats definitely will not transfer to the MircroSd card.To solve the problem, you can use a video conversion tool (e.g handbrake, pavtube) to compress or encode them first.

    I have tried putting other types of video files (avi, mp4, etc...), they dont have any problems except for the mkv files.

    Im using Windows 7, tried on 2 different computers same results...
    My phone is rooted and unlocked with ICS 4.0.2.

    Does anyone else have this problem or know a solution?

    Thanks,

    If so, why not just encode your MKV files to avi, mp4 before transferring

    the problem is with the divx program. it's causing these issues. solution is to either uninstall divx or simply rename the mkv extensions to whatever and copy away

    Thumbs up Re: Galaxy Nexus won't transfer mkv video files???

    thanks very much for the info :-)
    had exactly the same issue, could transfer every file EXCEPT .mkv between my windows pc and my nexus 7.
    tried everything from renaming the files to a whole heap of file managers.
    nothing worked, internet explorer bugged out every time i tried, got extremely frustrated.
    then read your post.
    couldnt believe something as simple as cut and paste would work when drag and drop didnt.
    but it is that simple.
    it does work
    plus .mkv files transfer very quickly and take up minimal space (16 episodes of supernatural, LESS than 2gb - brilliant!!)

    dont i feel like a proper numpty for not thinking of this myself and trying it sooner.
    am now a much happier nexus 7 user
    cheers.

    Not sure if this has been resolved or not. I came across this recently.

    I went into event viewer for the system, (Event Viewer>Windows Logs>Application) and it showed me this:

    Faulting application name: explorer.exe, version: 6.1.7601.17567, time stamp: 0x4d672ee4
    Faulting module name: DivXMFSource.dll, version: 1.0.0.72, time stamp: 0x4cffcff8
    Exception code: 0xc0000005
    Fault offset: 0x00000000000e5ec6
    Faulting process id: 0x984
    Faulting application start time: 0x01ce0d8be1b55382
    Faulting application path: C:\Windows\explorer.exe
    Faulting module path: C:\Program Files\DivX\DivX Plus Media Foundation Components\DivXMFSource.dll

    I Uninstalled DivX, and the issue went away. I was able to copy mkv files without issue

    Red face Re: Galaxy Nexus won't transfer mkv video files???

    Thanks for this answer I just got a Nexus4 and tried to copy some .mkv s across and explorer kept crashing as well. I uninstalled DivX and it worked straight away ( after a restart of course)

    Easiest fix I've had for this is the WinRAR path. Just compress the files using winrar, transfer them, and then unpack them with androzip. Then I use moboplayer to play the .mkv files.

    Red face Re: Galaxy Nexus won't transfer mkv video files???

    It really works!! I delete my DIVX file (because I can't uninstall it) and right away I can copy MKV file (even without restarting)
    thank you sooo much!

    Thanks ghan66! This worked for me. Reading the contents of the explorer error also showed me that the problem has something to do with DivX.

    I had the same problem before. Just uninstall Divx in your computer. Problem solve
