    Anyone have success installing a USB driver that will connect to the Galaxy Tablet? I have tried multiple times with the drivers from the Android SDK and it just wont find the device with this error:
    "Windows was unable to install your SAMSUNG_Android"

    Driver installed but still no connection

    It installed and I get to the
    Android Phone
    Android ADB Interface

    In the Device manager but nothing . Tablet sees USB connected and says it mounts but no drive or anything showing in Windows 7 (32)

    Also nothing no devices listed with "adb devices"

    This is a bit frustrating, I wonder how Samsung expects a basic user to connect this to their pc and download some music or files.......

    If you all you want is to access to the SD card then you don't need a special driver. Just hook it up to the computer, pull down the notification bar, choose the USB connection, and change it to USB Mass storage. The SD card should mount. At that point you can manually move music to the folders on the SD card.

    Be sure to properly unmount the SD card before unplugging from the computer. Also you need to change the USB connection back to Charge Only or one of the PC settings before the tablet will recognize it.

    If you are trying some of the PC syncing stuff, can't help you, but I'm sure someone else can.

    For USB Mass storage to work, turn off USB Debugging. Took me a while to figure out this one.

    Excellent USB Solution

    Thats that was exactly the issue mounting.. As soon as I turned the USB debugging off and connected the USB it mounted right up as a drive..

    Thanks

    As you may have figured by now.. it doesn't really matter where you put them. I just made a folder on my SD Card called Video and threw them in there. The show up in the Video app and also in the Gallery just fine.

    Will the tab be able to recognise a hdd or USB stick through the camera connect kit to increase storage further still?

    install the USB drivers for another android device (found on samsung's website). i have an ATT captivate and a Verizon Galaxy tab. The drivers available from samsung for the captivate work for the galaxy tab just fine.
