I just tested that (after the last of three OTA updates, now up to 3.2).
Under Applications-->Development, I don't have a "USB debugging notify". I unticked
USB debugging, and connected the USB cable. I get the same "Acer Sync" message,
saying turn on Acer Sync so you can transfer files between your tablet and your
computer (or something to that effect). Before that, no drive was created on the
computer (but it DID register as Acer Iconia Tab A500). I selected Acer Sync
again, and it turned USB debugging back on...still didn't mount the tablet as a
drive...BUT, I do now at least have a device listed instead of a drive now, where I
did not last night.
So, I can copy files back and forth, but ONLY by using Windows Explorer (or in my
case, xplorerr2, which has the option for split panels, bookmarks, more controls,
etc.), but I can't move files from a shell (Cygwin + zsh).
Is there a way to take that one step further, and get a drive letter, to allow use
via a zsh prompt? Or is that a M$ issue?
Btw, last night I did get everything transferred, but did so using FTP.
PS: First impressions: this beastie is a screamer! Talk about FAST! My Motorola
Bravo (MB520) is sulking in shame...and I thought IT was fast. :-) I also noted
that, while doing 32 updates from the Market last night, it did them in parallel,
where my MB520 does them one at a time. Nice.... And it did them a LOT
