Hi, my tablet is an ASUS T100TA.


Thanks Tony
You cannot do it via Bluetooth as the camera foes not support this, but you can put the memory card into the computer and read the photos from it this way.
But wirelessly over bluetooth is not possible sorry.
If you would like any additional information or assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know.
And if you can take a second to rate my service, that would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you

You told me that there was no device that would enable me to get photos from my Olympus VG-170 onto my Asus T100-TA transformer tablet, and that I could put the memory card in the computer, but the memory card from the VG-170 will not fit in the tablet.

I have since been told that I don't need any device, just the camera supplied lead, plug it into the USB socket on the tablet's keyboard and the photos are available. Why didn't you, the "expert", tell me this?

The answer given for which I paid £20, was wrong or at best misleading and I look forward to a refund.

I informed you there is no device to do it over Bluetooth, not that there is no device at all.
