Yesterday I installed CyanogenMod 10 (Android 4.1.2) to my Galaxy Tab 10.1 3G (first generation). Today, when I plugged it in my computer, Windows Update installed ACER ADB driver. With this driver I can debug my applications on the device, but I can not see mounted storage under My Computer.

Do I need to install other driver and which one?

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

An Android 4.x build probably uses MTP instead of USB mass storage as it's end-user data interchange mechanism. You may need to figure out how to access an MTP device (typically a recent digital camera or media player) from your PC os. Or you can see if the Cyanogen people have any suggestions for reverting to mass storage instead of MTP. Incidentally, USB mass storage should not require a driver at all, as a modern desktop operating system have built in support (except in cases where that's been removed from an installation for security reasons). –  Chris Stratton Jan 10 '13 at 15:40
