IdeaPad Slate Tablet K1 - What do I do if I cannot connect my K1 to the Synchronization Software on my PC through a USB cable?


If you are unable to connect your K1 to the Synchronization Software on your PC through a USB cable, please do the following:


Step 1 -Configure the following on your IdeaPad Tablet K1

Go to “Settings”, choose “Applications”, and then go to “Development”.

Make sure that the “USB debugging” has been checked, as Fig.1 shows.





Step 2: Plug USB cable into PC, as Fig.2 shows.

I was so hoping these instructions would solve my identical issue, but ... sadly, no.


I connect my Windows 7 laptop to the K1 with the supplied cable, and in LeTools, nothing appears in the USB discovered devices section (or in the WiFi connections section for that matter).


Any other suggestions?
