    I have not been able to get either my TouchPad or Pre2 devices to be recognized via USB to a Win7 Pro PC's. No issue with a laptop running Vista. All I get is a device icon but no way to use (drag files to it as an external data storage). USB ports are 2.0 and backwards compatiable.

    Any suggestions?

    What happens when you put it in USB drive mode?

    Can't say I've ever had a problem I have Win 7 Pro installed, 64 bit and it has recognised a Pre -, Pre 2 and a TouchPad.

    Are you tapping the USB button on your HP TouchPad after you connect the USB cable to the PC?

    Works for me and it shows up as drive in Explorer. Unfortunately, it puts the touchpad in usb mode and I cannot use it while it is plugged in.

    I get a new device icon that has no functionality. .and while I get the icon as a new device, I cannot eject so I get the.. Ouch that hurts form by TP. Even when I first shut down the laptop. lol

    To be clear, Win7 identifies a WebOS device with the category of Devices with Storage.

    have you tried using different cables. There may be a problem with the usb cable, some of us had problems charging our TPs and it looks like its bad cables.

    Also, have you tried all of the USB ports on your computer(s). Sometimes they are finicky.

    You didn't say what happens when you click the icon. First, make sure you're using a USB port on the computer, not a hub. Connect the TouchPad and select the option on the TouchPad to switch to USB mode. The screen will show as USB mode, and you should be able to open it on the PC as if it were a drive.
