I plugged in Nexus 4 to my windows machine(XP Service Pack 2) and it didnt recognise or install any software automatically. I downloaded some ADB drivers from google and now it shows up as recognised device(that is ADB device) in the Device Manager, but it is not recognized as MTP . because of this i am not able to tranfer data into my phone or vice versa...

> Settings > Wireless & Network > USB utilities From here you should be able to change to MTP. – pzkpfw May 28 '13 at 8:12
You can also transfer files in ADB mode -- see e.g. QtADB :) – Izzy May 28 '13 at 9:19

Uninstall the device from Device Manager, then plug it out and in again :)

What Device Manager? If you're referring to Windows's add/remove hardware tab page on the System Properties dialog box, then I suggest you re-edit your answer to include more information as its currently lacking details. – t0mm13b Nov 24 '13 at 21:48
