    Unhappy Problems connecting Samsung Galaxy Nexus to PC. Please help?!

    So for some reason, I can't connect my Galaxy Nexus to my PC. When I plug it up through the USB, it recognizes it as an "Unknown Device", and it doesn't let me access anything on it. I installed the drivers and installed them from the Samsung website, and still no luck. And even after doing the "Live Chat" on Samsung.com, I had no luck. The "Samsung Agent" wasn't able to figure out the problem either. Also, when I go to my Device Manager and select "Unknown Device", and try to "Update Driver Software", its says "Windows has determined the driver software for your device is up to date". Yet I still cannot access it... Please help me!

    Are you using the original Samsung data cable that came with your phone?

    Have you backed up your files and pictures? I see too many desperate cries for help recovering deleted priceless pictures with no solution.

    And also make sure you have not 2 drivers going as it will conflict. Naked drivers is all you want, disable kies or PDA drivers if you have them installed.

    Which operating system is on your PC? Win XP, Vista, 7, 8, ???

    Some of the "stands" that support the GNex vertically come with two cables, one for charging, one for data. As noted above, make sure you are using the original cable that came with your phone.

    Can you try this with other computers, to narrow down the problem to your phone or your PC?

    Can you try with a different cable, in case your cable is the problem?

    Also, does anybody have any idea how to delete synced Google+ picture albums out of my photo gallery? When I go to gallery, there are all these picture albums off of my google+ that I DO NOT want on my phone. And it will not let me delete these albums or the pictures in the albums. Also, I deleted all the pictures on Google+ in hopes of it also removing them from my phone, but it didn't work. Any ideas? Thanks!

    Try going to picassaweb and see if you can delete from there then sync your photos on the phone. I remember doing that with a folder before
