Ideapad A1 - Windows 7 USB Connection

I attempted to connect my A1 to my 64 bit Windows 7 Home Premium system...Windows complained about needing an appropriate USB driver.

Which driver is required?

Where can I download it from?

I'm also trying to debug apps with this device. Please Lenovo, provide a driver download ASAP!

It worked for me the second time I plugged it in.

Someone posted links to the drivers from the Chinese site for the LePad (Exact same device as the A1). You just need to look for the link on this forum. The USB drivers from that link worked for me.

I do remember seeing some lepad stuff but the closest thing that looked like it might have worked led me to some kind of lenovo download site in chinese so obviously I couldn't make heads or tails of what I was supposed to click.

I was using Windows 7 64-bit. No need for Chinese drivers. I'm not sure if there was an automatic internet download but it worked the second time I plugged it in - it said that it recognized the device, showed what it was and works well.

Re: Ideapad A1 - Windows 7 USB Connection

Well, I had searched the lenovo site the other day and serial number search was not working but this page does have one download for IdeaPad A1 tablet

http://support.lenovo.com/en_US/downloads/default.page?

its classified as synchronization software IN12STW145WW5.exe

 

After install/reboot still no help. Yes I'm certain debug mode is enabled and tried with and without usb storage on/off.

 

The device still shows up in Device Manager (w7 pro) with an alert icon saying device not installed/no driver selected. It shows up in the list as Other Devices>a107

Re: Ideapad A1 - Windows 7 USB Connection

I have posted the required files at:

 

http://www.tinybeetle.us/A1_USB_Driver_20110816.zip

 

Extract that to a folder and then point windows to that folder when it does the driver search.

Re: Ideapad A1 - Windows 7 USB Connection

ZenMasta,

I heard from the engineering that just need to enable something related to USB. Sorry i'm not sure the exact name. I'll come back with more details.

I"m interested in the zip file. Do you mean that the driver http://www.tinybeetle.us/A1_USB_Driver_20110816.zip eventually enabled you to connect to PC USB and transfer file successfully?

Regards,
Cleo
