Memory stick

    I have some music on a memory stick that I'd like to put on my tablet. The memory stick works fine on my laptop. My USB connector works fine on the tablet with a USB mouse (I don't use the mouse, I just used it to check the connector was ok).

    However, when I connect the memory stick to the tablet with the connector it tells me that the memory stick is damaged.

    Has anyone come across this problem before, and, if so, is there a solution? Any ideas as to why this is happening?

    Have you tried USB Debug Mode in Settings? How about the drive's file system? Is it formatted as FAT32? For the most part I connect my drives on my mobile phones and tablets and they connect as drives.

    Thanks. I just tried USB debug mode but with no luck, it still tells me the USB device is damaged. I'll try to find out about the drive's file system (don't actually know how to do this - I'm not at all techy!) but will "investigate", lol.
