    Hello,

    I can't connect my tablet to my computer.
    I've installed the driver but my computer doesn't see it.
    And it says when I plug it in that the driver isn't installed and has to be installed.
    When I try this I get an error.
    Do you know how I can connect my tablet to the computer?

    Gr,
    HalloNL

    You'll likely have to troubleshoot/google search 'vista USB driver issues'. This usually involves deleting the USB drivers in safe mode.

    Why bother?
    Just download Estrong File Manager and you can move files back and forth over your wifi.

    WiFi transfer seems to be the way to go with the A500 anyways. I have a Mac and it's just been being a huge pain, so I didn't even transfer any music. Granted I don't have any music anymore, but it's just the fact it won't transfer because there are no Mac drivers out yet.

    I can't find anything on the internet that work, and I really want to connect my A500 to the PC.
    Does anyone of you has another idea?

    So Hallo, when you plug your A500 into your computer, you're not getting a pop-up box with the option to transfer files, etc? Nothing? If you're getting the box, choose Explore Files. Go to My Computer if you've gotten that far and you'll see your A500.
    You've gotten and installed the USB driver from the A500 support page and nowhere else, right?
    I am not trying to insult your intelligence, I'm just doing basic troubleshooting to make sure those bases are covered.

    Just set the folders you want to share via wifi and install one of the many free file managers to connect. Your other option is to root your machine install the NTFS patch and use a USB stick formatted to NTFS. Connecting directly to your computer is just going to be a royal pain when when it is just as easy to do the wifi thing or root your device and use USB sticks.

    When I connect it I get the found new device message, and it tries to install but it says error installation refused by device. I have installed the driver from the site. and the manual doesn't give any feedback it only says instal the drive from the site wich I have done. So I'm really out of ideas
