    my computer thinks my phone is a camera?

    Hello forum, for some reason and this has never occurred before today.
    When I connect my stock Galaxy Nexus to the computer, it is showing a small camera symbol and only offering the DCIM and Pictures folders in "Internal Storage".

    Is this likely a problem with the driver and if yes would someone mind letting me know how to fix?

    In fact any idea on how to fix, would be greatly appreciated.

    thanks in advance

    Plug the phone into your computer then on the phone pull down the notification window and press on Connected as a Camera and change your option to Media Device (MTP) and you should have all the folders you usually see.

    Well I wasnt sure at first to be honest, but I knew there was 2 different ways the usb could act when plugged in. So I tested the other one and gave me the result you were having. So at the same time your question made me learn something.

    Hit the thanks button if you think I was a good help

    I selected MTP and I can see all my folders but it won't show me anything within the folders.
