If you want to move music/document files between the Google Nexus 7 tablet and the PC computer, or manage your tablet on computer direclty, you need to connect your Nexus 7 to computer first via USB. Here is the step by step guides:

The easiest way to directly connect the two devices is using a USB cable to connect from USB port to anther. The Nexus 7 offers a USB cable to make this connection, If you do not have one, you can purchase one from Amazon or local store.

After connected the cable to both devices, your PC computer will install the drivers to facilitate the connection. Then the tablet instantly is mounted  as another storage device for letting you copy files to or from.


  1. Nexus 7 will not communicate with my PC. PC will charge but that is it. What am I missing?

  2. I plug Nexus 7 tablet into PC and tablet charges only. NO COMMUNICATION. What am I missing?

    1. Your computer need to install USB driver for N7, or you need to disable "USB Debugging"

  3. My nexus only charges if its off completely, when i hook it up the the commuter via USB nothing happens, my computer and tablet used to hook up but then something happened to my nexus, now it only charges when its off.
