I saw a similiar discussion in the Non-US Xoom forum while I was searching for an answer to this same problem. Somehow the SD card cover came off of my Xoom. Does anyone know how to order a replacement
The bottom bar (Start Bar, Tool Bar, whatever it's called) continues to cause problems for me while typing. The keyboard comes up, and when I hit bottom-row keys often times my finger will either hit, or register as hitting, the Start Bar. Mid-sentence I often find myself looking at my Home screen, or I'm suddenly in another app.
Is there a setting somewhere such that when the keyboar pops up it will cover the Start Bar? I just got my Xoom and love it apart from this.
I discovered this evening while wiping the screen with a micro-fiber cloth while there was a scrollable list on the screen that my finger touches were registering right through the cloth!So I played with that a little bit and I thought that was sorta clumsy tryingto keep thecloth wrapped around my finger.I wondered if finger touches would register if I was wearing a finger cot.So I tried one and was stunned when it WORKED!!It worked right through the latex or whatever they are made from.You can get them at the drug store. Just ask for finger cots at the pharmacy. If they don't know what they are, some people call them Mexican condoms. No offense intended for any hispanics on the board.Just roll it on your finger as far as is comfortable. All you need is to cover the tip of your finger.
the one thing that bugs the crap out of me is that the hard grey back cover doesnt line up flush with the softer top black peice where the speakers and camera are. it came out of the box this way. its only on the right side though (if im looking at the screen). it is perfectly fine on the side where the camera and power button are and fine in the center.i know to some this may seem trivial especially if you dont have this issue but i feel like i paid A LOT for this device and should have the quality build that was intended by motorola and was expected by me. the consumer.is this something that i could send in to moto to get adjusted? am i better off trying to "fix" it myself? am i alone in this issue?
We were told weeks ago that it would be and now with the update rolling out we still don't have confirmation.If its not included can you put it on the site for download so we can add it manually.Its on the WiFi Xoom and can't be region specific so
I am following the instructions to copy the files from my xoom to a windows 7 PC (64 bit). It does not copy all the files and folders. For example when I do the select all instructed I only get 4 of the 13GB of data. I saw that it only copied the music files in the directory music, none of the sub-directories. I could then select all the folders in music and copy them over (none of my music on the xoom has any DRM). I was still missing some files. When I hook the xoom up via the USB cable I get the following mounted:
I can not drag Internal Storage to the folder created on the windows 7 pc, it is just a red circle with a line thru it. I can select all the directories/folders under Internal Storage, but it randomly picks which directories/files/sub-directories to copy.
Perhaps a problem with the win 7 pc driver?
Before I send the xoom off (and I have my packing box already) I would like to back it up completely.
I've noticed that when I send an email directly from the xoom standard email client my signature is present in the email body, however when the "send email" to a recipient option is selected from the contacts application the signature is missing.What could be causing this inconsistency and is there something I can do about it?
I understand that 3g versions are able to customize voice recognition input but the wifi version is missing this option in the settings...are there other missing features?Why can't the wifi version customize voice recognition?It's under Settings, Language and Input, Voice recognizer settings - there's no "personalized recognition" on the wifi version...?
Got the 3.1 update on my wifi xoom this morning. Looks like im missing the movies tab in the market and im also missing the videos app. i tried clearing the data for the market but it made no difference.
A question for Motorola Management, why is there no SD card Support? eg. a fully functional SD card as per every other sd card slot in devices.And don't go side-lining this as a duplication, this is a straight question requiring a straight answer.
We have two stock 32GB WiFi/LTE Xooms. We both started receiving SIM card error dialog boxes when we try to access the internet. The box states that the SIM card is unauthorized and recommends that we contact our wireless provider's customer service for assistance. This started happening after we accepted the new build number (HLK75F).
I have the SD card in my Xoom and mounted. No problems there ( the card is mounted through Settings > Storage > Mount ). How do I use it to store music, pics and video? Do I need to create a MUSIC directory on the card?I can't seem to find any docs on this, so suggestions on how to integrate the use of the card within my daily tablet life would be helpful.
I tried moving a picture to the sd using File Manager HD and it won't let.I also see that the internal card is the only one that's labeled drw. All the other folders including the external sd show dr- as the folder properties. So is the sd writeable now or not?
I have a Wi-Fi Xoom with 32G of internal storage and Android 3.2. When I insert a 16G SanDisk Class 4 micro SD card and power up,I am unable to mount the card. I go to Settings>Storage, and get an error message, with the option to Force Close or Send Report. Most of the time, the app closes itself with no action on my part. If I insert the SD card while the Xoom is powered on, I get a different problem. I am able to get to the storage setting, and there is an option to mount the card. However, pressing on that option doesn't cause anything to happen. The card is formatted as FAT32. I have copied some files to it on my PC, and the files are there when I connect the card back to the PC. I've checked the board here, and not seen this problem addressed.
I need a simple clarification that I can't find discussed plainly in any of the SD threads.As I understand it, an SD card is completely unusable at this time. For example, files can't be transferred there through a program such as Quick Office.Is this correct?
I have about 8 gigs worth of music on a 16 gig class 6 SD card in my D3. Every so often some music files will disappear and LOST.DIR will then have numeric files in its folder. I do not know why this is happening, but I am not the first who seems to be having this issue.
I thought I was doing something wrong that was causing the SD card to unmount incorrectly but my D3 has not been USB connected all morning and I have lost 140 files, and correspondingly LOST.DIR now has 140 numeric files.
We bought a Xoom to use on vacation instead of taking a laptop. I want to download photos and videos taken with my Canon Camera into my Xoom. I have the adapter for the Canon that allow me to convert the SDHD to a Micro SD, so that I can pop in ito the Xoom. I can view the photos fronm the Canon card on the Xoom, but it won't let me download them into the device. I don't want to have to go thru a computer to do this. So is it possible to download from the SD card onto the Xoom.
Also, when we watch the videos that were recorded on the Canon with the Xoom, they are at a slowed down speed. Would seem that if they were actually downloaded to the Xoom, it would take care of this issue.
I do not want to use the Xoom to take these photos. My Canon camera is the device we will use to capture the photos for multiple reasons.
Is the Xoom f.e. capable of moving apps to an sd card? I've tried several such apps, but none seem to work. Is this a hardware issue / limitation of the f.e or can someone recommend an app2sd card app for the f.e..?
I have been researching SD Cards at Amazon. Getting prepared for the eventual software update from Motorola. I have seen a Sandisk 32 GB Micro SDHC listed at Amazon. Is this a good card for the XOOM. I am VERY happy with my Xoom so far.
I just bought a Xoom wifi only because I thought it would be handy to have a tablet that I can use to swap files between my pc and my device, and now I see that though there is an sd slot it's pretty much just a decoration at this point. Does anyone know if there is a way to get this thing to work, or when Motorola/Andriod will fix that?And yes, I do know there are apps that I can use to access PC files over a wireless network, but i wanted to be able to bring a few sd cards worth of movies with me on the road when i travel since after i fill the device up with music and apps there's not a whole lot of room left.
Got the 3.2 update for my wifi xoom today and it supports the SD card slot! So, the obvious question is which one is recommended? Where can I find the specs for supported SD card speeds? I don't want to shell out the big bucks for the class 10 if the xoom only supports up to class 6 for example.
I have setup Astro file manager to default to the external SD card when saving and retrieving files.
Today I was "editing" a PDF and after saving the edits chose to "send" it from the app itself. The app prompted me to use Gmail. It opened Gmail and, as far as I could see, attached the file to the message and prepared to send it. I sent it to my work email address. I was not on line at that time however not long after finding a hotspot I noticed that the message appeared on my work blackberry. BUT no attachment.
So then I , on my XOOM, opened Gmail and manually attached the file to the message and sent it. Again it appeared on my blackberry but again with no attachement.
I then went into Astro and moved the file onto the internal memory, created a new Gmail message and located the file internally, attached it to the message and sent it. This time my blackberry showed an attachment. So it seems that whilst I can open files from the external SAD card, edit them and save them I cannot pick up these files for attaching to an email.
Is this a XOOM or an OS issue? If an OS issue does ICS resolve it? If a XOOM issue, why is such a basic requirement overlooked?
