    I have a haipad - imito im7s 7in Android 2.2 tablet. I love it, it's confusing but I'm trying to figure it out.
    I've done everything I can think of to get the USB to work. I bought a new cable, new keyboard, I don't know what else to do. I keep reading about things to try and I'm illiterate here. Out of words like rooting and such, the only one that I understand is bricking it up, and I don't want to do that.

    It doesn't come with blue tooth, so am also trying to figure it out how to teather it to my HTC Droid Eris, so I can give it internet on the road.

    I really need this to work, so please any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks!

    I know the one, a really cheap Chinese device, it's not very good. Probably got Chinese software as well, NO Google.

    When you plug it into your PC what happens? Are you getting any notifications about USB cable connected in the status bar? It might not support USB keyboards, only supports connecting to a PC.

    You should be able to tether it to your HTC via wifi. Set your HTC up as a wifi AP and the tablet should be able to connect to it.

    The keyboard worked when I first got it a few months ago, but even then it was only at times. When I plug it in to the computer, nothing happens except my computer says it can't recognize it.

    I've heard of doing that, but I looked on my phone (HTC Droid Eris 2.2) and couldn't find the option. So I don't know how that works???

    I'm so new to these things, but I need it for work and they are not giving me any help.
