    Computer connection through USB port?

    Would it be safe to use a USB cord, type A male-type A male, to connect the docked TF directly to my computer to transfer files? And would it also be safe to do this while charging the TF from the wall at the same time?

    I would think it would be no different than using the included USB power cord to connect through the proprietary port. But I still kind of feel like a tech newbie, so I just thought I'd ask first. I love my TF so much, I don't want to do anything to risk damaging it!

    For transferring files this will work fine.

    For charging, not so much unless it is a USB 3.0 cable. The USB 3.0 cable has 5 extra pins, of which some are used by the charger to determine if the TF is connected. If the charger does not detect a TF, it sends out 5 VDC @ 2.0 Amps. If the TF is detected, it will send out 15 VDC @ 1.2 Amps.

    I tried the USB cable trick to find out it did not work. I got a USB 3.0 male-female from monoprice.com for less than $5 USD and it works great. Amazon also has some good ones, and Newegg has some cheap good ones made by Rosewell.
