    Is it possible? I have the Touchpad connected to my PC via the USB cable and I really have no idea what to do. I tried putting it in the DCIM of the Touchpad even though I knew it wouldn't work and sure enough, it didn't.

    So how do I transfer a .txt file from my PC to my Touchpad so I can read it on the Touchpad?

    Any and all help is much appreciated.

    If I transfer a txt file to my TouchPad, it appears in the Documents list of QuickOffice. Doesn't really matter which folder it's in. I usually do such a small transfer via Box.net, but it's no different from doing the transfer via USB.

    You should be able to read .txt files in Quick Office. (just read one now)

    i don't think it has to be in any specific folder, i tried looking for the location of this PlayerPrefs1.txt file that I found with Quick Office, but didn't see it.

    this is what it looked like:

    game_sound : 1 : System.Int32 ; game_total_score : 2010 : System.Int32 ; game_sence : 2 : System.Int32 ; game_highscore : 950 : System.Int32 ; item_count : 0 : System.Int32 ; game_total_tickets : 39 : System.Int32 ; game_left_tickets : 39 : System.Int32 ; game_gravity : 1 : System.Int32
    Due to the cancellation of the penny, I no longer give 2˘ about anything. I may however, give a nickel

    There are several ways to transfer a .txt file. Personally, if it was a signal file to save time I would just email it to my touchpad. Save attachment and as Sledge said, quick office shouldnfind it.

    Why bother with USB connections? Install tapNote on both devices. Under the covers tapNote syncs up with Dropbox, so that's very easy.
    Palm Pilot -> IBM WorkPad -> Handspring Visor -> Palm VIIx -> Palm T|X -> Palm Pre -> US GSM Palm Pre 2 [shelved] and 16GB HP TouchPad [died] -> (Samsung GNex and 32GB HP Touchpad with CM9)

    You can also use the homebrew Internalz Pro app to find and open/edit the TXT file. Just make sure you make Internalz Pro the default app for txt files.

    An easy way to send a file from a PC to your TP is to use Wifi TP File Browser. When started, you press the GREEN Start Sharing button, which gives an ip address to type in a browser -- mine says http://192.168.1.59:1234

    The -easy to use- utility let you browse all TP files and UpLoad a file to the TP. I use this to move .AVI files that I plan to watch on trips.

    Start up Preware & search for WIFI...you should find Wifi TouchPad File Browser/Uploader. Although I use IE 8, I assume it works on any browser.
