    Question TF103C USB Tethering?

    I'm trying to tether my TF103C to a Windows laptop via the micro USB port on the transformer...without success. Is this supported? I see tons of references to support for OTG, but nothing that explains how to use it with the TF103C. Will OTG accomplish what I want? Do I need a special driver?

    We may have a terminology issue here. Tethering normally means trying to connect a device via WiFi to another like tethering the tablet to a phone. If you are trying to connect using the charging cable to do file transfers, that should work. Where are you having an issue?

    I want to connect the transformer to the laptop using a USB cable and have the laptop then see (R/W) the storage media on the transformer in its file system. That is how my Sony camera and Samsung phone work. In both of those cases, there are a few simple incantations required.

    Should be easy enough to just take your USB charging cable, plug one end into the same port you use for charging and the other end into your PC. Try a few is ports on the pc and see if the driver auto installs.

    If no luck there, on the tablet go to Settings/ Storage, tap the 3 dots in the corner (select USB computer connection) then toggle on and off the option for mtp mode.

    If that doesn't work, report back and we can suggest some other options.

    That was it - Thanks! There were a few minor differences on my device and/or version of Android: a) there were no 3 dots as you described, but rather a USB symbol and b) on the Settings >> Storage >> USB page I had a choice of MTP and PTP modes. Selecting PTP did the trick, though then I was able to see the interal storage but not the SD card.

    See if AirDroid will do the job for you. It will work over the WiFi so it doesn't even need to be connected.
