    Good afternoon; first post.

    My wife has a C97 (I have a C93 coming in the post to me), and she loves it.

    However, I can no longer transfer files to it by USB - neither the internal storage or the TF card.

    I have to remove the TF card and put it in a card reader to do anything, and cannot do anything to the internal storage.

    Has anyone come across this, and, hopefully, the fix?

    The C97 has had nothing done to it.

    The internal storage may have gotten corrupted....

    You could try reflashing a whole ROM onto it, or just to fix the problem and reformat the internal storage (for a stock Zenithink ROM), have the ZT283.recovery and the command file in your zt-update folder, and edit the command file so all the lines have a # infront of it, except for the --wipe_media line

    Code:
    ##### update stand android package
    #
    #    package format is ZIP
    #    --[cmd]=[source volume:][package name]
    ##--update_package=SDCARD:zt-update/update.zip
    ##### erase system part
    #
    #    --[cmd]
    #--wipe_system
    ##### erase data part
    #
    #    --[cmd]
    #--wipe_data
    ##### erase cache part
    #    --[cmd]
    #--wipe_cache
    ##### erase media part
    #    --[cmd]
    --wipe_media
    ##### update oem android package
    #
    #     package format is TAR
    #         SYSTEM: system.zt280.tar.bz
    #         DATA:   data.zt280.tar.bz
    #         MEDIA:  media.zt280.tar.bz
    #     --[cmd]=[source volume]:<target volume 0>:<constraint?>,<target volume  1>:<constraint?>,...
    #     for [SYSTEM]
    #
    #--update_oem_package=SDCARD:SYSTEM:0,DATA:0,MEDIA:0
    ##### patch oem android package
    #
    #     package format is folder
    #         SYSTEM: system0
    #         DATA:   data
    #         MEDIA:  media
    #     --[cmd]=[source volume]:<target volume 0>:<constraint?>,<target volume 1>:<constraint?>,...
    #--patch_oem_package=SDCARD:SYSTEM:0,DATA:0,MEDIA:0
    
    ##### update audio linence
    #     licence is "licence1.ef"
    #     --[cmd]=
    ##--update_efuse_licence=1
    ##### update ethernet mac address
    #     licence is ???
    #     --[cmd]=
    ##--update_efuse_mac=
    ##### update i2c device firmware
    #     --[cmd]=
    ##--update_i2c_device=1
    
    --show_text
    ## valid command is start from -- and max words less than 4096
    ## max command number is 100
    
    What ROM are you running on it?

    Thanks for the response.

    It's bog standard, as I am wary of trying to re-flash my wife's beloved tablet.

    The internal storage is still OK, and it can also read from the TF card, but I have lost USB connectivity.

    Cheers,

    Chris

    Ah, OK... If you didn't change anything in Settings, and unplugging an replugging the usb cord from the tablet side doesn't fix it, then try unplugging and replugging the usb from the computer side....
