    Connect the USB from your Polaroid to your Computer
    .
    Make sure that it's the USB that came with your Polaroid, or one that is compatible. Often, even though the USB fits, it won't work. It's always best to use the USB cord that came with your device.

Hello how do I download from computer to Tablet I have a 7' internet Tablet?

Hello I bought this and I just cannot seem to be able to download.

Depending on the brand of your Tablet, you can usually connect it to your computer with the supplied USB cable, and use a sync software to make your file transfers.

Other methods you can try are through WiFi, microSD or Cloud based storage. For WiFi and cloud storage options, you'll need an internet connection for both the Tablet and your computer. Using a microSD will probably be the best and most direct way to transfer. If your Tablet comes equipped with a microSD slot, you will need to also have an USB card reader that looks like this.

Was this helpful? Yes | No

Simply insert the microSD into the reader and plug it into your computer's USB port. Copy the files you need onto the new external drive and then insert the microSD into your Tablet. For WiFi transfer, both the Tablet and the computer will need to be connected on the same WiFi network. You can then use this free WiFi Transfer app from the play store to move files to and from your computer.

Cloud storage sharing of files can be done with the dropbox app. Sign up for an account here.

Install the app on your Tablet: HERE

All you need to do is upload the files from your computer to the new dropbox account. From your Tablet, log in to the same account and you will be able to see and download those files.

Most generic tablets will need the manufacturer's USB drivers and possibly a PC suite type software to allow you to transfer between the devices. Check the brand and model of your Tablet and see if such drivers and software are available from the manufacturer's site.

As an alternative, you can also transfer files from computer to Tablet using a variety of methods. If the Tablet came with a microSD card slot, you can move your files using a card reader on the computer. You can also move the files wirelessly if both the Tablet and computer and connected to the same WiFi network using WiFi transfer apps available from your app store.

When you are connecting your device via USB cable, make sure that you plug the cable to your computer securely and properly connected to the USB slot and will not wiggle when you try to move it. You can also try to connect the Tablet to another USB port and try to use another USB cable as it may be the issue why it isn't being detected by your computer. You can also try to reboot your computer in safe mode and see if the Tablet can be detected.

It is also possible that your computer's firewall or an Anti-virus is causing the problem why there is no pop up on your computer screen. Try to disable or turn off your computer's firewall first, then unplug and re-plug the device to your computer and check if there is a pop up on screen now. Commonly, an anti-virus is causing this problem that your device is not being detected as it detects it as a threat for your computer but actually it is not a threat only a miss-communication with the devices.

Was this helpful? Yes | No

Make sure before doing all of the suggestion above you restart the Tablet or phone first. This will refresh the system. If all else fails from the first suggestion, to isolate the problem why there is no pop up on screen, try use a different computer and see if the device is being detected by using a different computer where you can determine if your computer is causing the problem or the device that you are trying to connect to the computer via USB.

How do you download music to Polaroid to downloads or if you don't have an Amazon account?

You see, I'm trying to download music to my Polaroid Tablet, and I don't have an Amazon account. I have a download app but I don't know how to download music from there, so I need your help.

You'll have to specify download app you have. In most cases, you need to sign up for the app or account to stream/download the music you want. If you don't have an Amazon account, it's easy to make one. You can install the Amazon appstore and it will take you to the sign up page if you don't already have an account. The site is HERE

After you've completed the sign up process, you can access Amazon's large library of apps, games, music and movies through their own appstore.

You need to pay for music. Pirating songs so you don't have to pay for them is highly illegal. You can use services like Spotify, [www.beatsmusic.com/ Beats Music], or Google Play All Access to pay a $10 monthly subscription fee and listen and download all the music you want -- legally.
