Copying local media files to Google Nexus 10
1. Use the USB cable that came with your 16 GB or 32 GB Nexus 10 to connect the tablet to your PC, and you’ll receive a notification that the USB is connected.
2. Open the Notifications panel and touch USB connected. Then touch Turn on USB storage in the screen that opens to confirm that you want to transfer files. The Nexus 10 tablet is connected as USB storage, and the screen will indicate that USB storage is in use and you receive a notification. The Nexus 10 is mounted as a drive on your computer.
3. You can now copy videos from PC to the Google Nexus 10. During this time, you can’t access the SD card from your Nexus 10 or share your tablet’s data connection with your computer via USB.
4. When the videos are copied to the 16 GB/32 GB Nexus 10, you can disconnect your Nexus tablet from PC.
Like the Nexus 7, it does not include an SD card slot for additional storage, so you may need a Google Nexus Video Converter to compress very big file to smaller file size.
Note: Remember, your Nexus 10 will only recognize the files you’ve transferred if:
The file is a Nexus 10 supported file type like H.263, MPEG-4 SP, H.264 AVC.
Files are free of digital rights management (DRM) software.
MKV, MOV, TS, Tivo, MXF, and some AVI videos are not accepted formats and you have to convert HD Videos to Nexus 10 optimized H.264 .mp4 videos before downloading them to the device.
Theoretically connecting Nexus 10 to PC is not hard; however, some Nexus 10 users still met some troubles. Here list the most common problems we found and try to give some tips and tricks.
Been trying to transfer movies over to my Nexus 10 but having trouble. The problem is when I connect via MTP it starts to install the drivers, few seconds go by and then finishes by saying the drivers were not found. I’ve owned a few android devices, my last being the nexus s and have never seen these issues before. Any ideas?
We may figure out what your issue was. Is there an ADB driver installed for the Nexus 10? If so, uninstall it, and MTP should work. You can reinstall the ADB driver afterwards as well and it’ll usually work fine.
On Nexus 10, how to easily transfer photos using camera software?
You can put the Nexus 10 into Camera (PTP) mode by going to Settings > Storage and then selecting the menu in the upper right-hand corner. From there, you can select “USB computer connection”, which allows you to toggle between MTP (which is the default) and PTP which lets you transfer photos using camera software. PTP also works on computers that don’t support MTP.
