    Hi, I'm new to the Android Forum but had finally found a solid fix for the Nexus 7 / WinXP connection problem and though I'd post it here.

    I'm copying and pasting the person's post from another thread to give him full credit. I'd never have come up with this one but it works perfectly.

    Thanks Iwan - I've tried every other solution on google and this is the only one that worked for my nexus 7 on XP.

    So I ran "notepad C:\Windows\inf\wpdmtp.inf" (in hardware manager when my nexus 7 was connected I had a yellow MTP icon) - I've copied/pasted below the whole section that I ended up with - save the file.

    Connect your Nexus 7 and in device manager, right click the yellow mtp icon, select update driver, then in the wizard select authomatic (the top default option), let the driver install, all done!

    FINAL wpdmtp.inf that work for me:
    ;
    ;Device is identified by Microsoft OS descriptor
    ;If your device does not support it, use specific VID & PID for identification
    ;
    [Generic.NTx86]
    %GenericMTP.DeviceDesc%=MTP, USB\MS_COMP_MTP
    ; Nexus 7
    %GenericMTP.DeviceDesc%=MTP, USB\MS_COMP_MTP
    %GenericMTP.DeviceDesc%=MTP, USB\VID_18D1&PID_4E42&MI_00

    [Generic.NTamd64]
    %GenericMTP.DeviceDesc%=MTP, USB\MS_COMP_MTP
    ; Nexus 7
    %GenericMTP.DeviceDesc%=MTP, USB\MS_COMP_MTP
    %GenericMTP.DeviceDesc%=MTP, USB\VID_18D1&PID_4E42&MI_00

    Welcome to the forums :)

    Nice fix, is this for the 2013 or 2012 version of the N7?

    If you can tell me I could potentially put this in a better area.

    This fix was for my 2012 model.

    Unfortunately, it looks like it may not be a "universal" fix as Dimbulb hasn't had any success with it.

    Hopefully it will help others.

    As I mentioned to him, the connection doesn't seem to be completely stable as when I try to move large or numerous files from the laptop to the Nexus it seems to die midway during the transfer.

    If I take my time and move fewer files at a time it does perfectly well.

    Still looking for the definitive answer but perhaps this will be a good stop gap.
