Telstra enhanced tablet

Hi. I have a Telstra Enhanced 10" tablet. It has a usb socket but apart from charging the tablet, the port doesn't do anything else. I would like to be able to transfer files from a USB memory stick to the tablet but it seems to be unresponsive. I have an adaptor cable with a type A Female on one end and minature plug to suit the tablet on the other but so far no response from any usb device that I plug in. Thanks to anyone who can help. Ray.

Re: Telstra enhanced tablet

I afraid there is no way of transferring files as all the Telstra branded smart Android devices' firmware does not support OTG.USB ports.

Hi cf4. Thanks for your reply. I guess that now I know there is not much I can do about it. One rather cumbersome way that I've used a couple of times is to remove the SD from the tablet, copy the files to it and put it back in, but it is not particularly convenient. Thanks again.

You can connect the tablet to a PC using the supplied USB power cable and copy files directly to the Tablets internal memory or SD card using File explore.

Hi cf4. Thanks for your reply from a few days ago. I have been partially successful in that I've been able to connect to a windows laptop, however when I tried to copy a short Mp4 video clip to the sd card in the laptop it refused to copy saying that the file was incompatible. Trying to copy the file to the tablet memory gave the same result. However, when I took the micro sd card out of the tablet and, using a USB card reader,  copied the same file to the card and then putting the card back into the tablet, the clip played perfectly well! Time to give up, I think!Smiley Happy

Re: Telstra enhanced tablet

That is strange. Did you get the incompatible message on the PC when you tried to copy or on the Tablet when you tried to play the video?

Hi cf4. Thanks for your reply. The message was on the PC. not on the tablet. It didn't even get as far as copying the file to the SD in the tablet. As I said it's no big deal, I will just copy to the card out of the tablet when I want to transfer a file to the tablet. Thanks again for your help.
