I would recommend airdroid. You can find it on the play store. I used to have this problem with my Nexus 7 where the PC wouldn't recognize it AT ALL. I used airdroid to transfer roms and other stuff to it all the time. I would recommend using it on wifi though because it does use alot of data transferring big files. It really works great though. Just download it and follow the instructions. It will give you a web address to go to on your computer, when you do you will get a prompt on your device asking to allow access, hit grant and then your done. Super easy and super useful. You can also use wireless adb, but it takes a LONG time to transfer files bigger than two or three hundred megabytes. Good luck.
