    Unhappy What happened to Polaris Office on my Slider?

    When I first got my Slider with Honeycomb I could open Polaris office and programs like word and excel would be options. I've upgraded to ICS and while I still have a Polaris Office icon, when I open it, I can only access My Folders. What's going on. Any help?

    Before you worry too much about this, I want to point you to this thread:

    I have not lost any data, but I rarely used it. I found others that worked better, including Kingsoft Office which is 100% free.

    Well operator error with Polaris, it's ok and not corrupt as I thought it may have been. But I did DL Kingsoft Office. Still working my way around the Android software. I have a PC with W7 an iPhone and now an Android Tab. A question Frederuco. Will an external DVD player work through the USB port on the Slider? I tried once and my player would not play the DVD. It spun up but no picture.

    There are only a select few (samsung for now) DVD drives that have android compatibility. I have not tried any to know if they work.

    I just convert my movies in my W7 computer to .mp4 using DVD Catalyst ($10 USD) and then I can play them.

    One thing, spinning drives will kill your battery much quicker. Try using a USB external hard drive and watch your battery drain.

    Hmmm. My DVD drive is a Samsung. The model number is SE-S084. A really nice little drive. It's not even a year old yet.

    Does it mount in the /Removable/USBdrive1/ folder?

    Depends which file manager you are using.

    The stock File Manager ASUS includes it will show a USB drive on the left below the Internal Storage directory.

    Using others, the internal storage is /sdcard/
    External is in the /Removable/ folder.

    Ok, I attached my drive via USB port and the file manager did not recognize the drive. Do you think there may be a firmware update down the road that will allow this or am I asking too much from the Android OS?

    It is possible it may work down the road, but I just do not see optical drives being that beneficial for Android myself. Many computers do not even come with them anymore.
