I've just acquired Nexus 7 (2013) and can't connect it to my PCs. All drivers I have (one from Android SDK, as I'm a developer, and the second from the Android site here, named as
latest_usb_driver_windows.zip btw) do not install either under Windows 7, or Windows XP. PC discovers new device as "Nexus 7", but wizard says "could not find the software on your computer" when I specify folder with drivers.
After some unsuccessful trials, I decided to disable MTP and mass storage modes on the Nexus, just to eliminate these parts of driver - in fact I need only debugging via USB. I enabled the debugging via USB at very beginning, and it shows up in Android's notification bar, but the device does not show up in adb/Eclipse.
So I switched MTP and mass storage OFF via notification area. This did not help to attach the new device. But now I can't enable either MTP or storage mode back. They are missing in notifications, and they are missing in Settings -> Wireless & Networks -> More, where they are supposed to be.
So the question number 1: how one can switch MTP and storage mode ON in Android 4.3, specifically on Nexus 7 (2013), other way than via notifications? I saw similar question on the Internet, and the only answer was to reboot the device - in some cases (from time to time!) this worked for someone. I restarted Nexus, but still nothing USB-related shows in settings.
Also I'd appreciate any clues on how to connect Nexus 7 (2013) to Windows PC? I should mention, that I have Nexus 7 of the first version, and I'm able to debug apps using it, that this first Nexus is connected to the same PC successfully. This brings another problem, because I do not want to lose connectivity with the first device by complete removal of drivers, because I have no guarantee that after this the first device will not become lost in the same manner as the second.
Thanks in advance.
