How to connect a USB flash drive to your tablet using the USB cable

Okay, let's start from basic notions - why would someone want to connect a thumb drive to a Nokia tablet?

USB flash drives, which are sometimes referred to as thumb drives are basically flash memory cards with a USB connector. They could be easily carried around and can store up to 64GB of information. Most of my friends use these to make backups of important files or to carry needed files with them.



The N800 and N810 both come with built-in memory card slots, but both these data storage devices work identically but flash drives are capable of storing larger amounts of information.

The only difference is in the the plug, the USB plug in this case.

Well, when I started writing this blog posts, I didn't know that a similar article already existed, so please refer to this article to find out how to connect a USB drive to a tablet by using a USB cable:

Nokia N800 & N810: How to unzip files

Unzipping files on your tablet

Tablets, as well as smartphones, support various file formats and .zip archives is one of them. If you download a zipped file and moved it to your tablet, you may have noticed such problem - there's no way to unzip such file and view its contents.

But I’ve got a solution for you - there is one piece of software and it’s called Unzip. Unzip is completely free and can be easily installed onto your tablet. Once it's been installed you can unzip any .zip files (you just have to click an them in the File Manager)



Installing Unzip on tablets

1. First of all, in your tablet click on the globe and select "Open New Browser Window".

2. maemo.org/downloads is your destination page

3. Enter "unzip" search query in the top right hand corner.

4. Find Unzip application.

5. Click "Click To Install" arrow. Say yes or OK to all of the boxes that appear.

6. When Unzip has installed successfully, close the Application Manager.
Okay, you are ready to rumble.

You can now unzip any .zip file by just double-clicking on it in the File Manager. Sometimes complex things could be very simple.
