    I use dolphin browser and my files save to sdcard/DownloaD, but thats on the a500. Where you trying to save the files to on your a500, which directory? Sounds like you may be trying to save to a directory that you only have read rights to.

    I was having issues saving ditectly to my interal and external storage after I re-installed win 7 the other day and prior to that had no issues. For whatever reason win 7 didn't install the drivers and device manager said driver wasn't installed, but it was recognized as a500 there. I downloaded the usb driver from acer support and now works. I'd try installing the first one listed here, which is also the larger one Acer Support: Downloads & Support Documents - Tablet / ICONIA TAB / A500 then plug your a500 in and try again.

    I was reading somewhere acer uses some copy protocol that is slow as molasses.
