    Two times now I habve had the tablet working fine and out of no where I get an encryption error and it only has the option to reset the tablet. I did that the first time and now I just powered off and when I restarted it loaded to the screen it loads the first time it starts up and it didnt see any of my apps even thoigh they are still on sd card. any ideas?

    Not a good ideal to reset tablet if you have apps moved to sdcard, that is what's causing your problems.

    I got the encryption error before the rester. i googled it and it seems like a common problem with ics on alot of devices. havent come across a cause or fix yet.

    The cause is moving the apps, if you don't move your apps to sdcard you won't see the error.

    Correct as everything is on sdcard nothing is moved. Moving apps to sdcard requires system to follow symbolic link from data to hidden files on sdcard, this link can and does get corrupt, erased, damaged so the system shows encryption error. This error means system can't find or mount hidden files, cause the symbolic link was lost.

    I had more than a dozen encryption errors and locks with a new 8042. This occurred even without the microSD card. Memory or CPU is bad. Less than a month old. Sent back to Coby for replacement or repair.

    Replacement 8042 arrived from Coby yesterday. It works much better. If you get repeated encryption errors and the tablet is under warrany my advice is to return it for replacement. It cost me $15 for service handling plus shipping which didn't make me happy, but the replacement solved the problem.
