Re: connecting HP slate 7 to PC

Welcome to the HP Support Community!

 

Reboot both devices, and when you connect the USB cable, be sure to use a port on the computer, not a hub.

 

If still no connection, try changing the "USB computer connection" on the tablet from MTP to PTP while connected to try and wake things up.  :-)

Re: connecting HP slate 7 to PC

Thank you for your reply but I read your earlier post suggesting the same to some one els, tried all that and still no connection, only when on PTP but as soon as I go back to MTP nothing shows on "Devises with removable storage" in "My computer" so if I want to tranfer anything from my PC to Slate 7 there is nowhere to send it. Any other ideas? Thanks Phil

Re: connecting HP slate 7 to PC

A workaround would be to use a cheap USB card reader to write to the micro SD card, then transfer it to the Slate 7.

 

The Slate 7 works fine with the XP laptop we have here at  home.  I can see both internal and external storage.  :/
