So, I have 7 days to return and since I don’t buy any extended warranty, last night, I had to test everything to make sure they work: internet, gps, usb, sd port, and I have
n’t tested the HDMI, it works. The amazing thing is the usb hard drive and mx video player plays mkv, avi, mpg, mp4, m4v and the original player does play mp4, m4v extremely well. The file system is great, just like “my computer”, I can see my files on the SD, USB drive and the internal memory. It’s amazing. The best thing is the SD card, I don’t need an adapter like the mini-SD, I never remember to bring them anywhere.
Secure Digital Card (SD and NOT mini-SD = NO need SD adapters)
The port is on the top-right corner of the tablet, to plug in, the front SD is facing me. How do I format my SD card? exFAT, yes because I want to put some files bigger than 4GB, the only draw back is that I can’t use this SD card in XP OS computer, come to think of it, I can plug the tablet in my XP computer with the USB cable and I can transfer files to the SD card. Now if we go to “file manager” we can copy, paste, delete, cut from one place to another, sometimes the file manager does force close itself… 🙁
I tried to copy movies files from External USB drive to External SD card and it doesn’t copy any files over 2GB although my SD card is formatted with exFAT, either this is a bug of file manager software or honeycomb itself. Anyhow, I downloaded “file manager HD” and I can transfer bigger files now. I think it’s faster to remove the SD card and use PC/laptop to transfer files.
Now both external memory ports are verified working, next we want to check HDMI.
Just plug it in and it works, no problem there.
Everything seems to work right out of the box, that’s Toshiba quality and truly designed and built for consumers, just like iPads 🙂
