    So I go to plug my tablet into the PC via USB and no tone, no detection, nothing. It does start charging, but no data connection to the PC at all, not on the USB devices list, no "Unknown Devices" showing up, etc. This tablet has connected with the PC successfully before. I've rebooted both the PC and the tablet just for kicks and no change in behavior.

    Dell doesn't have a driver for this tablet, so what do I do?

    Have you tried using another cable?

    Sorry, this was my question. Posted to AC question b/c I was too lazy to log in.

    Yes, I have tried several known working cables, and tried different USB ports on the PC. And made sure it's set up to be connected as a media device. And toggled between that and the Camera setting to see if that wakes up the port. No dice.

    Have you ever been able to plug in to your computer? (sorry for the dumb question)

    If it's connected successfully before and doesn't cause anything to happen when you connect it now, there's no data connection between the phone and the computer. If it gives you a notification that it's connected as an MTP device, it's connected to the computer. IOW, we're getting two mutually exclusive conditions here - it is connected and it isn't connected. There's something missing in your post.

    If you don't have the device, you don't know what jblues is asking for. I am facing the same problem, the PC detects the device but unable to get any drivers on its own, Dell support has no drivers available for it. Try this:
