    htc desire & android tab froyo 2.2
    Hi. I've treated myself to what looks like a great spec tab for under £200! It's 8", 1.2ghz, 512 memory & froyo 2.2. I've put a 16 gb micro sd card in, but there's the issue. I copied music & picture files from an HTC desire card (copied to computer then dragged to tab card), but the tab doesn't see any of the files on the card. I also put the 8gb card that I use in the desire into the tab & it doesn't read that either. I also tried the supplied lead to connect the tab to my laptop, but it didn't find the driver!! Am I doing something wrong, can anyone think of a solution? Am I missing some software???
    Thanks, newby, basil281.

    Try formatting the card first on the tablet.

    If that doesn't work, install DropBox on your desktop and tablet. VERY convenient way to move files between devices.

    I use Samba to transfer files over wifi.
