This is also an advantage for the user, as there is no need to 'unmount' the Device-Storage from the
Android-OS to enable the low-block-level-access to the storage.
And: There is no need for a FAT32 Filesystem on any flash-sotrage on the device - so nobody has to pay
any licence-fees to Microsoft *smile*

Unfortunately there is no support out-of-the-box when you use Windows XP.
When you USB-connect your Nexus then Windows find's a MPT-Device but still
is unable to access is. Bump....

Based on the work of http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1291293 you
need just to add a simple Text-Line in the file C:\WINDOWS\inf\wpdmtp.inf

Change from:

Code:
[Generic.NTx86]
%GenericMTP.DeviceDesc%=MTP, USB\MS_COMP_MTP
to:
Code:
[Generic.NTx86]
%GenericMTP.DeviceDesc%=MTP, USB\MS_COMP_MTP
%GenericMTP.DeviceDesc%=MTP, USB\VID_18D1&PID_4E42&MI_00
(just add one line which identifies the Nexus 7 device on the USB-Bus)

The next time you plug your Nexus 7 answer 'automatic install' if windows asks
you what to do with the new device. And voilà: You see your files in the Windows-File-Explorer.

You are the man. After several failed attempt trying to have a nexus 7 connected to windows XP, this is what actually worked for me. Adding that just one line did the magic. I'm even able to use the device as a thumb drive by dropping pictures in the DCIM folder and was able to view it in the device gallery.

I find that if an XP machine can't read ab MTP device, installing Windows Media Player 11 fixes it. This is true for a Nexus 4 and Nexus 7 in my experience.

For those of you who have the Nexus 7 2013 device, the instructions are:

%GenericMTP.DeviceDesc%=MTP, USB\MS_COMP_MTP
to:
Code:
[Generic.NTx86]
%GenericMTP.DeviceDesc%=MTP, USB\MS_COMP_MTP
%GenericMTP.DeviceDesc%=MTP, USB\VID_18D1&PID_4EE2&MI_00

The change is in the PID identifier.
