General chit-chat on the Linx 8

transfer of videos and files from external hard drive

Postby yemape » May 18th, 2015, 11:12 am

Hi, I am having trouble transferring or viewing videos from external hard drive on my new Linx 8 tablet with windows 7, I have managed it a couple of times on a very much hit and miss basis, no real method. I have a short Female USB to micro USB which definitely links the two devices but being a tablet virgin I am lost, can anyone help in plain English please. It would be appreciated, last time I posted re Cameras I got expert advice and am hoping for the same. Thank You. Eric

The external hard drive probably is drawing too much power for the tablet to handle. Is it an externally powered on? (has a power lead to the wall)

Try your Female to Micro USB lead with a memory stick to make sure that works.
