Done Google, Samsung and not a not a lot of success. Toshiba laptop has interesting things like music calibre etc, running Windows 7. Kies up to date. Hook up Galaxy Tab 7 (GTP1000) no interest, nothing happens except it says connect device. Connected, Unconnected with usb and reconnected, nothing zip bugger all. Nothing happens on tethering either. Can't transfer anything over which is a massive pain in the rear end. I suppose I could as a last resort take out the mini sd card and transfer direct, except the tab is firmly encased in an otterbox case and sealed shut with months of muck, snot and grime. Thank you. Abuse is of course acceptable and expected. As long as it includes some advice.
