    I saw another thread asking the same question but it was not resolved and last post was mid January, so I decided to start another. I connected the phone, set it to MTP but can't see it in My Computer.

    I went to device manager and is is there in the list named "Galaxy Nexus" I tried updating the drivers, from the device manager, it found new drivers and began the install but stopped and said something like "device not turned on/connected" so I unpluged it, pluged it back in and tried again, this time it says the drivers are up to date and it's working properly.

    I just want to backup a few damn pics before I root it!

    What OS on your PC are you using and also is the USB debugging checked in your Settings-Developer Options? Also, are you using the USB cord that came with the phone? (It should automatically show as charging your phone, that's how I know mine is connected properly)
    Mine took a few tries to make sure I had the correct Samsung drivers installed on both XP and on Win. But since then it shows up to be accesses each time.

    OK I turned USB debug on, plugged it in, said installing device drivers, then said could not find drivers. Hmmm

    Running Win7 and using orignal cable

    if you mean this thread: http://androidforums.com/samsung-galaxy-nexus/488562-file-pc-gnexus.html

    thats my thread... the reason why i havent post a solution or an update is because i tried so many options or fixes.. and none worked... in the end i gave up and kept using airdroid... airdroid is awesome and cool, but still, i wish i could use the USB :( on my PC
