    Just got an CrystalView XT Android 2.3 Swivel Netbook Tablet at CVS on sale and have been working on it all day.

    It was very cheap so I didn't expect a lot. I've managed to set up most of the items (e-mail, WiFi, etc.) I need but am challenged by one issue--and the tech support number is no help. (At least they answered the phone, unlike the last CVS netbook I got but they asked me to call them back if I figured out how to solve the problem.)

    The issue is how to copy files from/to a USB flash drive. The netbook recognizes the USB flash drive and will read files that are on there. However, what I want to be able to do is to download a file on the flash drive, add to it (e.g., meeting notes) while using the netbook, then save it back to the flash drive and work on it on a Windows PC. Similarly, I downloaded Kingsoft Office but it only lets me save to the cache or the SD card (which I don't have) so I don't know if this is a software or hardware limitation. All of the steps I normally take with Windows computers (using Windows Explorer and dragging and dropping between directories/drives or right-clicking file names to get additional options for saving) are dead ends.

    Any ideas on how to achieve this? Recommendations for a better free or inexpensive Word Processor that will let me accompish this?

    Probably a limitation of the apps. You could try using a file explorer app, that can see the USB, and use that to copy and paste the files to the USB drive.
