    Unhappy New version causing new problems.

    Hi,

    Unfortunately since last update to Android 4, I am "still" experiencing 3 new problems:

    1. Can't see the tablet as a regular drive like it used to when connected with USB to my main computer.

    2. Can't copy files from main computer to tablet through WiFi. I see the files, select them for copy but when I paste them in tablet's Download folder I get a "file not copied..." warning.

    3. The battery seems to last quite a bit less than before. I need to recharge the unit after only 3 days of my regular usage (reading in the train) instead of the usual 5 days !

    All this is very frustrating of course and the satisfaction with the product took a big drop... :-(

    Is there an newer update available or settings that need to be tweaked to get back the tablet's behavior I had when I first bought it ?

    Actually, is it possible to go back to Android 3.2 ?

    Thanks !

    PS: Please Mr admin, don't change the title or move my messages in the future. Thanks.

    First, - My apologies that we changed the title of your thread so users may be able to easier to identify if they can help you by looking at the thread title.

    Now, on to your questions:

    1. Can't see the tablet as a regular drive like it used to when connected with USB to my main computer.
    The tablet is designed to show as an MTP device and not a regular USB drive. I believe this is to make media syncing with Windows Media Player easier. If you cannot see your device at all, try going to Settings - Storage - Tap the three stacked boxes in the top right - USB computer settings - PTP

    2. Can't copy files from main computer to tablet through WiFi. I see the files, select them for copy but when I paste them in tablet's Download folder I get a "file not copied..." warning.
    How are you trying to copy these? File Manager HD? ES File Explorer? WiFi Explorer?
    How large are the individual files? Do smaller files work properly?

    3. The battery seems to last quite a bit less than before. I need to recharge the unit after only 3 days of my regular usage (reading in the train) instead of the usual 5 days !
    Check your WiFi sleep settings. Some ICS updates have enabled WiFi when sleeping.
    Go to Settings - WiFi - Tap the 3 stacked boxes in the top right - Advanced - Keep WiFi on during sleep - Never
    Also, be sure your GPS location settings are turned off unless you need them, and same with bluetooth.

    Hi !

    I found a solution to my first problem by installing the Sync package and then removing the app leaving the ASUS Android USB driver installed. I was not able to install just the driver by itself...

    I just downloaded another FileManager from "Rythm Soft" ( not sure about the company name ) called FileManager HD which looks better. I will try to copy my files from the network with this one...

    Thanks for the Battery saving tips, I'll set these as soon as possible !

    Thanks,

    PS: About the renaming thing, I know you did this to help, but it took me a long time to find my message when I got back to the forum...
