    hello, I purchased a used nexus 7 2013 vzw LTE tablet 6.0.1. I am having trouble getting anything to happen with the usb other than charging. I tried factory reset and debugging. I have a phantom 3 advanced with v1.8.80. phantom works with my phone (htc). when I plug the nexus in all it does is start charging. I tried plugging it in to two different windows computers and it does the same thing just charging. I also tried several usb cables.

    thanks in advanced for the help.

    Did you get into developer options and change the usb configuration?

    I turned usb debugging on in the developer options and MTP (media transfer protocol). those are the only things I tried. in D.O.

    What does your DJI Go app show?

    Don't even try since your RC version is up-to-date. It usually does not match with AC version. Everything is the latest. You might want to use another microUSB cable.

    It happened to me as well. I had to use the white microUSB cable that comes with the Phantom 3. When you launch the app, what does it show on the screen?

    When you connect the Nexus 7 to a PC it will only charge until you drag the top notification bar down and you have options to open and view folders or whatever.

    But you shouldn't need fiddle with that when connected to the controller.
    Mine will usually immediately open the Go app as soon as controller is switched on.
    On the tablet, go to settings then Apps and top right the dots menu has an option to reset app preferences - try that first.

    try resetting the device to factory defaults. At that point (for me) my nexus connected right to the app.

    I have factory reset the Nexus 7 2013 3 times . The only app I install is djigo. I don't get options for USB unless I go into developer options. Even if I plug the N7 into a PC.

    if the pc doesnt see it, sounds like one of the data pins of the micro usb connector are damaged.
