If it's an android tablet you might have to set it as a media device or to USB mode in order for a Windows laptop, at least, to *see* the internal or external SD card in the external SD card slot. You said you can't see the drive so I'm guessing you mean the internal drive. In Windows file manager you should be able to see some of the unprotected folders and files but you won't see many and you probably can't mess with them but once you see the drive you should be able to create a music folder and a photo folder and a video folder, etc and you should be able to copy files to those folders. Depending on your android O/S version selecting the USB connection as a media device might be on the left side slide down menu or you might have to use the regular Settings app and touch the three
dots on the upper right and see if it says USB Mode.

Or, it could be you need USB drivers. Plug in your android device and then open Device Manager. You should see the device listed. Right click it and select *Properties* . This should give you an option to look for and install device drivers. Be connected to the Internet and let Windows browse the internet to look for the drivers. If it finds them it will automatically install them and configure the device so you can transfer files.

Good luck. I hope some of this applies as you didn't really provide enough details to make it anything but a guess.

How do I turn on usb storage when attaching to my computer

Connect your tablet to the PC via the USB connection

After a few seconds, during which the two computers are negotiating the connection, a small USB icon will appear in the toolbar at the lower right, near the clock

Touch the toolbar clock and in the pop-up menu that will then show, touch the "Turn on USB storage" entry.

In the window that then opens, touch the "Turn On USB Storage" button that appears near the bottom of the frame

You now have files access to and from the PC, and can up and download files to eiher the micro USB card (if fitted) and/or the internal storage memory. [:o)

Sanei tablet 3it is not running on laptop pc hp

To connect up a tablet with a laptop you need to connect them with a USB cable.

On plugging in the cable with the tablet powered up, you should see two things.

1. A question on the tablet as to whether you want to use memory disc mode or diagnostic(ADB) mode. Choose Memory disc mode.

2. You should see on the PC laptop it recognise that an external device is connected, it may recognise it as a phone or a memory drive.

If neither of these things is happening it is probably the cable at fault.

The tablet should then start providing the pc laptop with the drivers it requires to be recognised. If this does not happen, then the fault is with the tablet and you have to consult your supplier.

You should end up with at least one memory drive which you can browse through with the PC's file manager. The data will be on the tablet.

How do i download this file from my laptop to my maxtouuch

Well, if it's a Windows PC it will be in "Computer" and has a drive letter assign to it and you can drag or send files to it. On the Mac it just shows up on your desktop and you can just drag files to it. If there is a specific backup program you are trying to use, please tell us the make and model of both the laptop and hard drive and the Operating system of your computer.

How do I transfer my sermons from my laptop to my Archos 101?

2 ways:
1. Copy sermon files from laptop to USB drive, then mount USB drive to Archos, go to files, external drive, copy files to ARCHOS from USB drive.
2. Connect laptop to Archos with USB cable & copy or drag files from laptop to Archos

Note: You will then need a reader / Office Suite/ or other app to view the sermon files. I assume the files are .doc files. Excellent app for this is Docs to Go.

Friends laptop will no longer connect to internet. She also did not have any anti-virus software on her laptop, but does now. Like I said, she cannot connect to the internet, yet computer shows the...

You can right click on the "my computer" icon, click properties and click on the hardware tab. Then look for device manager. Look under modems to see if the internal modem is still displayed.
Sounds to me like she got a virus. Many will stop the user from connecting to the internet to download antivirus software. Have you run a scan on the computer since you installed the new anti-viurs? If not, see if you can do so. If you cannot run a scan. she more than likely has a virus and may need to clear the hard drive and use her re-image disks. After backing up her important files and documents to an external drive (flash driver, etc.)

I hope that these suggestions helped and will get your started on getting this laptop connected again.
