    I am trying to figure out how to transfer data from PC to K1 tablet (and vice versa). K1 has no USB port that I can find. There is an app called LeTools that supposedly lets you do this via WIFI, but it isn't installed on my tablet, and I can't find any downloads for it. There is a download to install LeTools on a PC, which I have done, but it needs an app installed on the tablet to communicate with.

    I tried LeNovo software support but they seem oblivious.

    Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    Thanks -- I was able to get a USB connection.

    I'd really like to connect to my LAN via WiFi. The LeTools app doesn't seem to do anything after I enter my id/pw in the WiFi login panel.

    Anybody able to do this?

    The application File Expert is available free at Android Market and is a file manager that handles wifi file transfer between a tablet and shared folders on a networked PC or network file servers on a lan.

    There are several file manager in addition to File Manager that support SMB/SAMBA network file systems just choose the one you like from Android Market

    What do you mean your K1 as no USB port. Get a female to female USB adapter like this [​IMG]one and using the connector that came with your device, connect any USB device to your K1.

    I have been able to USB link my K1 to my PC, install LeTools, and synch by USB. However, I cannot get wifi synch set up.

    Have entered an ID and password on the K1 and clicked wifi. LeTools shows up in the K1 tray.

    On the PC I click "Refresh". The little "lotus" spins for a while. Then I get the following message:

    "Failed to get device information. Please make sure LeTools WiFi is enabled in the device."

    I've double and triple checked the K1 Wifi setting. For diagnosis I have also turned wifi off on the K1 and clicked "Refresh" on the PC. It then stays blank below the button (as expected). When I turn wifi on the K1 back on and click "Refresh", I again get the message above.

    What am I doing wrong here?

    Hi, does it turn the USB data cable into an OTG cable so I can connect USB flash drive to the tablet?

    I agree with soduku_san, the K1 comes with a USB cable.
    I also use the App: Airdroid, which I think is fabulous!
