    hi all,my 1st post.
    i bought my daughter a zt180 for xmas last year.purchased nov 2010.
    all good until recently,switch it on and it goes no further than the ANDROID_
    last saturday i spent 5hours trying to update it having read here that updating was the problem.
    im not very literate on computers so it all needs to be plain english sorry.
    i think my problem is the driver part...i switch on in usb mode connected to mini usb lead(i have 2 now,,thinking 1 wasnt working)
    my laptop on windows vista or the lads on windows 7 wont recognise.
    so basically im asking for help on how to get drivers and which update do i download?
    i have a friend who could help me but its getting hold of him and to be honest i hate being BEATEN by technology..im 40 and when the kids think your rubbish because you cant mend computers it hits home that im might be getting behind the times a bit.
    sorry for the long post

    You may seek help from the seller and ask your friend for help isn't shame at all.

    thank you for your quick response,i cannot ask seller as i bought it nearly 18months ago from ebay(it was brand new).
    i may need to get help from friend yes.
    i just downloaded the 1020 update from zenethink us from a link on this forum,so i will see if i get any joy trying to do that.
    i am a little unsure which firmware i need to get the epad working and im hoping the driver is part of download as my laptop(windows7)wont recognise the tablet without.
    i will post my results.
    regards jeff

    yay!!!!!!!!!!
    i done it!
    tried again today by downloading the firmware from elonex..at first i couldnt put the drivers on then i realised i needed to open the elonex folder manually(doh)
    i then opened the burntool and and it was green....then start then it was automatic.
    it now works.
    thank you.i used the mini usb method.
    i have also purchased a card reader and 2gb mini sd card from ebay.
    so now it works i intend on her getting the best from it...so,am i right in thinking if i put the card in the reader and plug in laptop i can download things to card and just stick it into tablet?it will read it automatic?
    1 more thing...where can i get free apps and games?
    thank you thank you thank you
