    I have both Nexus 7's - 2012 and 2013. Unfortunately, I installed the Lollipop update onto my 2012 tablet a while back, but have ignored the "install 5.0.2" prompt that's on my 2013 N7 and still have KitKat on it.

    Meanwhile, I have a lot of music/songs on my 2012 N7 that I would like to transfer onto my 2013 N7. I no longer have those songs on my new PC (the old PC crashed a few months ago) so is there any way to transfer all the music on my 2012 directly over to my 2013 tablet?

    I would suggest to try uploading them to Google Play. I think you can do that via mobile devices.

    If they both have NFC (can't remember if the 2012 does) you can use an app to do it that way. You can also use a cloud service to do it. Some won't let you store long term, but I've used Dropbox and Drive to get a few songs from one device to another.

    You can also use a USB OTG cable to do it I believe. That would depend on device support, and while I'm almost certain they both support it you would need to check.

    Thanks for your comments. Yes, both 2012 and 2013 N7's have NFC which I switched on. I also d/l "SuperBeam" and "Astro file manager" from the Play Store and tried to transfer the music by touching the two tablets together like I read about here: The Fastest Way to Share Large Files from a Nexus 7 to a Samsung Galaxy S3 or Other Android Device « Nexus 7 but couldn't get it to work.

    I also read online that for some reason Windows 8.1, which I'm stuck with on my new computer , won't recognize Nexus 7 via a USB connection and I certainly found that to be true with both of my N7 tabs.

    What finally worked for me was to use the regular/mini USB cable that came with the N7 to transfer my songs from the 2012 N7 to our old Windows 7 laptop, and then use that cable to upload them from the Win7 laptop to my 2013 N7. Whew!!
