Samsung Nexus 10 was officially announced by Google a couple of weeks ago where they unveiled that the 10-inch Android tablet of the Nexus family is built by Samsung. Samsung Nexus 10 has Android 4.2 on board which is the latest and a better Android version in every way. This tablet will start shipping on November 13th, the same day when the LG Nexus 4 will be launched as well. This means some of you would have problems with the USB drivers, like always. Don’t worry! We have the Nexus 10 USB drivers here for you!
Nexus 10 does not support mass storage anymore, but it now uses MTP which allows you to add or remove files from your 16GB of storage in the tablet. MTP drivers can be downloaded along with Samsung KIES or are always included with the stock Android software. ADB drivers and Fastboot drivers will need to be downloaded from the Android SDK. We have an entire section full of Android USB Drivers, but we have that covered as well for you below on how to download and install the drivers.
NOTE: You can always check our Android USB Drivers section for latest updates.
Samsung Nexus 10 USB Drivers for Windows
Like we said, the USB drivers for Nexus 10 are bundled with tablet running on Android 4.2. For transferring media content, photos and other files from your tablet, you need to have a micro USB cable (preferably the one you got in the Nexus 10 box) for connecting the tablet to your computer.
- Connect your Nexus 10 with the computer using that USB cable.
- Now wait for the computer to recognize the device.
- Several drivers including the modem, MTP service etc. will be installed automatically.
Once finished, you will see a new media device in My Computer. You can now transfer photos, music, videos or any other files from and to your Nexus 10 USB memory.
