Welcome To Lenovo Community
Once you connect the A1 to a USB port on your PC, and then on your A1, go to...
Settings... Applications... Development... USB debugging (on)
You should see (on your PC) the A1 as a new drive, and you can drag & drop files between your PC and A1... using your PC.
Hope This Helps

I think you are talking about the ROM before ICS?
I couldn't install the USB driver on the PC after my A1 was upgraded to the ICS.
COuld you please help?
Now I can only use tools from PC to access files on my A1.

I think the OP is probably talking about an A1-107 which is currently being sold through Best Buy and comes with ICS preloaded, and the OTAs that some people have found online are actually for this model rather than for the A1-07 which has been in the market for a while and shipped with Gingerbread 2.3. Upgrading from Gingerbread to the ICS image may yield some unexpected results (quirks) because it may not include all the files needed to fully bridge (since it was expected to be updating from another version of ICS).
I've not tried the A1 personally, but found my K1 was somewhat quirky connecting to a Thinkpad running XP, but has been more consistent when I plug into my A300 desktop running Windows 7 Home Premium.
Is your system running XP or Windows 7?

Mark , during upgrade all system partitions are formatted and filled again with all files (except user data).
So theoretically after upgrading GB to ICS we have same tablet as from BestBuy .....
Script used during upgrade ICS:
ui_print("3. format partitions");
assert(run_program("/tmp/fuse", "system", "format"));
assert(run_program("/tmp/fuse", "cache", "format"));
assert(run_program("/tmp/fuse", "userdata", "format"));
assert(run_program("/tmp/fuse", "inand-secure", "format"));
assert(run_program("/tmp/fuse", "factory", "format"));

I just went through this.
Make sure you connect to a PC USB port (not a hub).
You should immediately get a USB Mass Storage screen or a USB icon in the notification bar at the top which will take you to the screen. It will say 'USB connected' with a button to 'Turn on USB storage'. Hit that and then 'OK' on the next screen. If you don't get this, the cable may not have a good connection.
Now the PC should see the internal memory as one drive and the SD card as another in Windows Explorer. It may ask for a driver. This worked for me:
The driver is called a1adbdriver.exe
That was the last connection issue for me.
BTW, being new to Android, I wasn't sure where to put files (music, video, etc). Tech support said Android looks for the appropriate file types anywhere on the SD card.
Hope this helps someone.

I tried this. My A1 does not show the Android figure for storage nor does my PC show the A1 in the available drives. There was no problem when I first got the A1.
Any helpwould be appreciated.

I am having the same problem upgraded my Ai to ICS, now i can't connect it to my PC.
Anybody got an answer? All the people who upgraded to ICS we can't be the only 2 people who had this issue.
My PC finds the A1 but can't find a driver for it.
Is there a driver I can download??
