    can you use mouse on android?

    hi, i have an eken m001 with a broken touch screen... i have tried making my own make shift apple/usb convertor by soldering to female usbs together one end connects to the apple style lead that goes into the android tablet and the other end connected a usb optical mouse... that didnt work not sure if it is because of my make shift usb lead or whether it just wont work? also tried soldering straight on to the usb port on the board of the android on the back of the wifi card, this also didnt work but i do know that the wifi is turned off on the device so would that make a diff? i cant set it to on cos i cant touch the settings... has n e one else had a mouse working on a eken m001? helppppp

    Better question What don't I own, Oh a generic APAD
    There are mice that do work with some, but not all tablets. The key element is what type of mouse. The standard USB Mouse that is recognized as a HID device will generally work. BUT, if your tablet did not have the HID drivers included in the build, then you are potentially out of luck.
    If your EKen came with the Mini-USB Male to Female USB adapter, it should be a straight plug-in. Your makeshift connector indicates it may be missing the driver. One way to check is to plug in a USB memory stick. If the USB memory stick works with the UDisk driver installed, then it is an indicator you may not have a compatible mouse or missing the HID drivers. The HID drivers are usually installed.

    samsung galaxy tablet
    Hello there,
    I just bought a galaxy tablet 10.1 and also wanted a mouse and keyboard. Went to vzn and bought the samsung keyboard dock and the microsoft blue tooth mouse 5000 from office depot. Went home, opened the settings tab/turned bluetooth to on and paired the devices by entering the '0000' when asked for a pin. They showed connected. Then turned off computer and restarted. Wiggled mouse a few times and the blue mouse arrow showed up. Magic. Perhaps one needs the samsung keyboard to work with a bluetooth mouse. There is a blue light that goess on and off during use of the keyboard/mouse. Love the tablet though.

    Yeah why not. And it depends on your tablet. Some tabs don't have the full size USB. If your's does, you could plug in a mouse or keyboard. Icebike has a 4 port USB adapter plugged in. You don't have to rely on wireless Bluetooth.

    I tested both the Xoom and Galaxy with the logitech BTW keyboard and MS BT5000 mouse, both worked great.

    I have some sort of Android device (small computer) that I use for watching on TV. I plugged a Weksi wifi USB mouse in it and it worked for 2 weeks after which it didn't recognize it because there was suddenly no cursor on screen anymore. Then I plugged in Genius wifi usb mouse and that worked for like a month and then all of a sudden cursor disappeared. I tried changing the batteries in mouses, resetting Android to factory settings but still no cursor on screen. Anyone know what's the problem? MAybe some settings in android? Or is there some app that could fix it?
