[Q] Windows 8 and Nexus 7: Random Disconnects
Hello folks, I am having issues with my new 2012 (Tegra 3) 32GB Nexus 7. It seems to be randomly disconnecting and reconnecting to my computer, which is running Windows 8.
I have no issues under Linux with data transfers, but it seems that as soon as the device is in sleep mode, either the device or Windows will disconnect itself from the PC. I have tried connecting it to a powered USB Hub, front USB ports and back USB ports, but it seems to have the same issue.
However, it seems to calm down as soon as the screen is on (I haven't noticed the random disconnects/reconnects that much when the screen is on). It is really annoying, as it'll go "Connect", "Disconnect", "Connect", "Disconnect" on Windows.
I am not sure if it's hardware problem, but I did get a 4.3 update recently that installed by itself (and it forced me too, I couldn't say "No, don't update"). I have heard that other Nexus devices have had similar issues. Has anyone else had this or do I have a defective unit or is it just my Windows at fault?
