    Let me ask you a couple of questions first -
    are you rooted? are you using USB?

    I ask this because I had a rom on my phone (evo) that would take forever to transfer files from USB. It worked fine in recovery, but when the phone was booted, nothing. So, if you are rooted I would recommend a new rom or re-flash that rom.

    If not rooted, then I haven't a clue.

    You may not have the right Samsung driver installed.
    I have Windows 7 64bit and had the same problem until I used the correct driver.

    Late me see if I can dig that driver up for you...

    USB DRIVER V1.4.6

    It might be related to this bug: Issue 23090 - android - Galaxy Nexus MTP Support Can Hang Transferring Files - Android - An Open Handset Alliance Project - Google Project Hosting

    Basically, it manifests on my phone as file transfers timing out. Sometimes cancelling and immediately trying will work, sometimes plugging the phone back in works, sometimes I have to reboot the phone... if you use any other app (there's a few FTP server apps or webdav server apps that you can use to push files to your phone over wifi), it will work fine.

    It's supposed to be fixed in 4.0.3...
