    Default File access / transfer issue - MTP, PTP, bluetooth

    I'm having issues transferring files from my Galaxy Nexus to my PC. First, here are the config of the two -

    Galaxy Nexus - Verizon LTE
    ICS 4.0.4
    3.0.21-franco.Kernel-nightly-17.2
    USB debugging enabled

    PC - Windows 7 Ultimate 64 Bit.
    Samsung ADB driver 1_4_6_0 installed.


    When I connect the GNex to my PC via usb on MTP mode, all the folders show up but other than Camera, music, movies etc, other folders don't show their content...!! For example,

    1) the TitaniumBackup folder. When I browse it using ES File explorer on my cell, that folder shows lots of files, all having read permissions. But the same folder in PC window shows up empty.

    2) The apps backup that I created using ES Backup, located at sdcard\backup\apps - shows up on phone but not on PC.

    I even connected the cell on PTP mode. But then only camera folders show up. Duh, PTP IS camera mode.

    So, other than Pictures, Music and Video, I'm not able to move/copy any other file from GNex to my Pc. Geeeez, that's what MTP stands for. Media Transfer Protocol. It can't handle anything else....!!!

    Next I paired my PC and GNex over bluetooth. And lo n behold, all the files show up. Pretty. But now it is "You can look but you can't touch" drama. If I try to copy anything, I get service not available error. Aparently, "Bluetooth peripheral device" driver is not installed. I tried to update those [showing up with yellow ! marks on Device manager], but no results.

    Anyone else facing these issues? Any solutions? Thanks in advance guys.

    It seems a few people are having this issue... try disconnecting and reconnecting the phone.. or rebooting the phone while connected.. it should trigger the computer to read the SD card.. sometimes it takes a few minutes for the files to actually show up. You can also try this app which will also force the SD card to be rescanned https://market.android.com/details?i...nNkcmVzY2FuIl0

    Another solution... try uninstalling Google Currents and all of its files... that seems to be the culprit for some people.
