Flex 8 USB Driver

I plugged in my Flex 8 that i just bought to my Windows 7.   The device manager cannot recognize the device. 

 

I can't find any where to download the driver.  All the other product make the driver available online.

 

I am about to return this product if a driver cannot be provided timely.

Hello mcmho,

Welcome to Community@ Insignia™!

Why are you trying to connect the tablet to your computer? 

 

I just tried 2 seperate tablets on multiple computers and they took a little while, but Windows 7 installed the drivers automatically in all cases.

Regards,
Jeremy

Hello mcmho,

     The tablet supports two separate connection types to the Windows 7 Computer.  Both can be found under Settings->Storage->more.  One is MTP  or mass storage or PTP for media playback device.  Both connect to Windows without any drivers.  If you have another data transfer cable I would try that.  Also the device supports OTP so with an OTP cable you can plug in a flash drive.  Good luck.

thanks for the reply!

 

but does that mean other than content transfer,  Android app development is not very compatibile with this tablet?

Re: Flex 8 USB Driver

No, I am saying that we provide standard Android interfaces for the platform. If you want to go beyond that it is a Rockchip 3168 platform. There are plenty of resources available on the web to allow you to access the system in any fashion you choose. I would warn you however that some may negatively affect your warranty.
