    Ok I am running into an issue. I rooted, no problem, installed the java no problem, and SDK installed, but no usb_driver. I tried this on 2 different machines running XP, snd still thst folder is not installed to the Android SDK folder with all of the other items thst were installed.

    Now 1 difference in your directions is that the SDK that I installed was not android-sdk-r07-windows.zip was android-sdk-r08windows.zip instead. Not seeing where this makes a difference, but I could be wrong.

    Just try plugging in the tablet. Or you could use a terminal emulator to do the same thing. Just remove the 'adb shell' part.

    hi,

    i installed Android SDK but don't see 'usb_driver' folder made in android-sdk-windows folder.. does this mean there was a problem during the installation? (actually the download link gave me 'android-sdk_r08-windows.zip' instead of r07.. and that's what i used..)

    thank you

    Hi,

    I've been playing around with the Coby for a couple of days, and I think I understand the device pretty well. I think its a good bargain entry level tab. Anyway, I've installed a bunch of apps and am having a good experience.

    Here's my question: I'm considering rooting the device. if i don't necessarily wish to install the google app market, what advantages would I realize from rooting the Coby? I gather that i would be able to access windows office files, etc, but that isn't a big deal for me on this particular device.

    I downloaded 'android-sdk_r08-windows.zip' instead of r07 like a few others, and there is not a usb_driver file. What is the fix for this? I am trying to hook up my Coby to my labtop so I can download/transfer library books from Overdrive in the e-pub format.

    My first post! Yay for me!

    So for people using the r08 version of sdk... here are the modifications to the original instructions (they are scattered throughout this thread, but since a bunch of people are asking... i thought i'd summarize:

    1. To get the usb drivers, open sdk and go to available packages, open 'third party add-ons' and check the 'Google USB driver package, revision 4' (you can uncheck the rest). This will install the drivers. You can find the inf file under the 'google-usb-driver' folder

    2. whenever you see 'android-sdk-windows\tools' in the original instructions, replace it with android-sdk-windows\platform-tools. The adb.exe file is actually in the 'platform-tools' folder

    With these modifications, the original instructions work perfectly!

    Good luck!

    Hi I'm stuck here as well but can't seem to get the terminal emulator installed on my Coby.
    What is the usb keyboard? And the coby cable is that just the usb cable that came with Coby?
    Please help!

    I can't get my brand new Kyros 7015 to see my sd card. Any ideas???

    OK. Now it sees the card but it can't read it and it won't format it.

    OK. Now it isn't seeing it again.

    HELP!!!!!

    If there was nothing on it, format it as fat32 with a pc or mac. Then try again.
