    In Acer Iconia Tab A501 USB is not working.

    Recently I bought the new Acer Iconia Tab A501 android tablet, and now after few days I can see that there are problem with the USB. The problem is when I connect with the USB, at that time I cant see all the files or folder contains in that USB. For example if I am having files within folders. Here I want to upload the folders, but when I connect it at that time I see only the folder not the content of that folder. So what can I do here with my Acer Iconia Tab A501? Is that problem is related with the Acer Iconia Tab A501 os it is caused by the USB only? Please suggest me in this case.

    Here first tell us that which version of the Android version you are using? The latest version is 3.2 and I think that 3.1 resolved some USB and SD card issues. So please reply me back that which version of the Operating system you are running on?

    Here, I can say that, recently I upgraded to the Honeycomb 3.2 before few days. And here before that I was running with the version of 3.01, but before that all the things was running so good, but when I upgraded it to the new Honeycomb 3.2 version then I start getting some of the problem. The problem is that I can only read the USB or SD card which has formatted using the FAT not NTFS. I wa not thinking to do this update but my tablet prompted me to download an update and it brought me up to version 3.2 of honeycomb. And now my tablet can read the NTFS partitions , and here no need to reformate my all flash drives.

    While updating your Acer Iconia Tab A501 with the latest version of the OS then at that time make sure that your tablet have the more power and also it is having the good wifi signal strength during the updating process. This will help you to install the pack easily.

    Here are the steps for download the update:
    • First you will need to go to the Settings > Application > Development > enable Stay Awake.
    • And then Settings > Screen > Timeout > set the value to 30 Minutes.
    • After this plug in your charger adapter to your tablet.
    • and hen you can proceed with the update or you can also check the availability for the Update under About Tablet.

    Hope this all steps will help in your case.

    Before going for the latest update I wi8ll suggest you that, first make sure that your USB is working fine. For making sure about that try the same USB with the other tablet or the computer system and see it is working fine or not? If it is not working then at that time you will need to buy the new USB not go with the update. And if that USB will works than you should they with the update.
