    This is a known 'Android' problem :( This is not the fault of the tablet device as far as I can tell. See this thread:

    Download issues: stalled at "Starting download" - Android Market Help

    Essentially going into 'Manage applications' and clearing the data/cache for 'Google Apps, Market, GTalk etc' and then re-logging into the Market fixes it 'sometimes'.

    It is the same on my tablet - very frustrating, and I have yet to find a reliable fix :(

    Have you tried downloading from different sources ? I sometimes find I can download OK from one site but not from another.

    Are you using an SD Card ?

    Read the link I sent above. This problem is nothing to do with the device. An SD card is not needed, as apps are downloaded and installed to the internal 256Mb ROM (or what is left of it after the OS is running - about 140 meg in my case). The internet connection on mine is fine, I can download from and site via the browser - its just the Android Market with the problem.

    Someone from another forum mentioned disabling POP and IMAP on the google account may fix the problem. I tried it and it did make a difference, in a bad way. After logging in to the Android Market, my MID (flytouch epad) just rebooted itself, and since then it's in an erroneous state that I can't power it on.
    I see the screen lock screen but I can't get past it. Clicking on menu button would blacken the screen. Rebooting the device doesn't make anything difference. Currently I am letting the device to run out of battery to hopefully reset itself.

    The link below is where I got the info from originally.

    What i do is to look on google for the same app. I search untill i find a site where i can download it on my computer. After that i copy the software to my sd card and then i can
    install it on my tablet.

    I dont know if this is working for all the apps but for the aldiko book reader it was working very good

    File Expert seems to work fine if you use a server, workstation, desktop, laptop, netbook to download the *.apk then use File Expert on your tablet to access the shared folder on Windows/Linux OS, USB Network Drive or NAS. I too see some files don't download like AK Notepad.apk if I download to a PC then slip it onto microSDHC won't install. Just be careful with some of these sites that you use for downloading from. Seems some files are not real and are fake.

    Also if you have the memory space left on your internal storage then use that, but that 1GB, 2GB will fill up quick. 4GB, 8GB, 16GB, 32GB external storage on SD or microSDHC. Make sure you get class (4) @ 4mb/sec Class (6) @ 6mb/sec close more. Class (2) 2mb/sec will be slow but on most of these type of devices you might now even notice it.

    Hi I've bought a MID tablet works ok so far. But the reason I bought it was to use some type of voice activated software as my husband is dyslexic. However every ap I download (there aren't many that are compatible) won't allow voice activation, and the last one says it's disabled so does anyone out there know if it's possible to activate it on this tablet?

    Many thanks for any help

    I have the same problem. I have the 7" MID Tablet from China and when powered up, just the green Android shows up showing OS2.2, Kernal 2.6.32, Build Number V1.3.0


    The controls do nothing and I can only turn it off and on with the same results. Going to try the previous Reply and let it on until the battery dies, then recharge and see if it corrects itself.

    I must admit the wifi is working great on mine. I tried it first at a fast food outlet as I don't have wireless at home. Conected to the cloud and it was working fine. Hope you have some luck with it.

    Regards my query though I have tried a few aps for voice activation and all of them have this disabled which leads me to believe the unit is either not equipped to deal with it or it's disabled. Not sure how to go in and check this tho - any ideas?

    Hey!! I'm new to the tablet world and I have no idea what I am doing wrong. I turn my MID 7" on and try to get online, and it tells me there is no internet connection. I was told to check my WiFi connection and it is strong. Any suggestions as to what I can do to gain access to the internet on this device? I just got it and am growing very impatient already. Thanks in advance!!!
