    Nexus folder does not show up when I connect USB to computer?

    I just got myself a Galaxy Nexus and I wanted to transfer some music from my computer.

    When I connected it to my computer, the device was not shown in "My computer"

    All that came up was a little menu on how to organize my music files (one of which was Windows Media Player...but it doesn't seem to transfer music correctly)

    How do I get the device to show up in My computer OR is there another way I can transfer music to my device?

    I'm also not from the U.S so I can't use Google music

    Thanks.

    You have to download the drivers for your device to the PC. if it doesn't start doing it automatically, make sure that you are using the USB cable that came with the device. It took me a whole day to figure that out. After the drivers have downloaded, you should be able to see your device in "my computer".

    Also, make sure it's "live".. meaning if you have a screen lock, unlock it with your PIN or whatever.. that caused mine not to be recognized by the PC
