Default Help - xp wont let me see phone files via usb

I know this is probably a stupid question, but I can't figure it out after 2 days. I was able to unlock and root my phone using adb and fastboot. But the other day when I connected my nexus to my computer (wondows xp) I had the "perform this action in the future box checked" and selected "do nothing".....No when I connect to the computer, I know the computer sees it (pdanet pops up and "safely remove hardware" pops up at the bottom) but I cant find the phone as a drive or anywhere to get or move files. I have it connected as a media device and usb debuggin on. When I connect as a camera (ptp) it shows my pics, but I need access to the other files.....Thanks!

well, I think I figured it out from another thread who asked the quesion differently. Apparently since the nexus uses mtp, I need to have windows media player 10 since I am on xp.

I downloaded this on my Mac (they also have a PC version) and it worked like a charm.

Why Google uses MTP instead of USB file transfer on Android 3. glasskeys.com

Download: Windows Media Player 11 for Windows XP - Microsoft Download Center - Download Details
