Default MTP - Windows issue

I have problems with MTP on my Windows PC.

When I create a new folder my explorer.exe crashes. It also fails if I want to copy more than 2-3 files (for example an music album).

Is there a way to reinstall the MTP drivers?

Happens with Nexus 5 +7 2
Same problem with my Windows Laptop (win 8) and my Windows PC (win 8)



P.S. On a mac it also crashes when i try to transfer large files...

I have been having similar issues with MTP on Linux with multiple phones. I think its an issue with MTP in Android and not Windows/ OSX/ Linux. I have tried the same phones on Windows 7 / 8 / 2012 and all behave the same way.

Is there a Workaround?

The crashes are random! In this moment I successfully transferred 4 music albums.... weird....

I have not found a way around it. I just had to keep transfering 1 folder at a time, and just keep trying till it successfully copies. I have had to do with with LG Optimus G, HTC One, Galaxy Nexus, and Nexus 5. All phones did the same thing. Randomly erroring out on copying to or from the device.

Yea, I believe the problem is that MTP allows for computer and phone to still access the storage at the same time.
