    I'm sorry, I'm sure al of you must be tired of seeing these posts by now. I'm a new user, bought my TP off Amazon for a deal as a gift to myself. Been reading on the forum for over a month now, trying a few of the solutions. Even had 2 friends who are tech savvy more than myself and still have been unable to fix this.
    I have plugged it up to my computer- attempted to download the zip files this way, and its installed on my desktop; but I'm so lost just after this! I'm looking to try to get this going for school - anyway to get this going wirelessly maybe?
    I even read thru the online manual to figure out the install for homebrew applications - yea I'm lost.

    Anytime I can't open a pdf directly from the web, i download it and then use InternalZ to rename the extension to .pdf and most of the time this works.

    If not, I remote into my desktop, open it there, save, and email it to myself. Definitely not ideal, but it works when i want it to.

    You'll have to download it by long clicking the link, then select download link. The downloaded ipk can be accessed and installed in downloads folder.

    What file extensions are you trying to download? PDF works fine, XLS works as well on my touchpad. Some links are not properly formed and it messes with the file header and will not open properly if at all.

    I had this same problem a month ago and never could get an answer that worked.

    1st, it's nice to see, ppl are still buying Touchpads.
    2nd, I hope you all realize, this is a discontinued device which has no official support anymore.

    Ok, that settled I would recommend to tell exactly, where the problem lies and read exactly, what the people write as a suggested solution.

    So if you speak about opening a certain file (i.e. PDF) from an external source (webpage) or from a mail, there is always the oportunity to SAVE the file to your device. How this works, has been described in this thread before, so I won't elaborate again.
    With the file on the device you have to either find a software which can open it (for PDF there is the standard adobe reader or kingsoft office) or copy it to your pc (via USB, via mail, via Dropbox or whatever) and open it there.

    Well, now you've got your options listed and need not be all grumpy about this problem anymore.

    Be happy, that a device, that was discontinued in 2011 still works for you.

    Buddy1969, I think you may be confusing webOS for Android (or maybe with ACL) as Kingsoft is not available for the TP.

    We have QuickOffice (now part of Google) or Picsel Smart Office.

    If you're using PDF's, I must suggest you also install one of the patches from [PATCH/IPK]Adobe PDF Reader Enhancements either should work and it is trial and error as to which one you prefer.

    There are a number of patches in Preware that may also help you with your TP although none 'fix' the mime error.

    Can you be more specific? Do you get this message on a certain type of file(s) or on ALL files.

    webOS has built in support for certain file types and others are supported by particular apps. So when downloading, webOS will open the required app according to the file type. If the file type is unsupported, you will get the message.

    If you are getting the message for files you know are supported, then there is a fault in the system. Otherwise, you either need to find and install the app that offers support or accept that there is simply no support for the file type.
