    I have finally figured out how to get files from my desktop onto my microSD card. And my tablet shows the card. But when I try to look at the files with any of the viewer apps, I get nothing. What do I need to know/do to see these files? Thanks in advance.

    What type of files exactly?
    It can take a short while (much longer than windows) for data to become available the first time a card or usb is used.

    PDF files should open automatically.

    Use a file manager to navigate to where the files are, then select the pdf to open them.

    Perhaps the file manager will open tiffs too. Its not a common file format for android but somebody might handle it.
