    Connecting graphics tablet to a tablet computer

    My sister doesn't have a laptop, but she has a windows tablet. I got her a graphic drawing tablet for her birthday, and I was wondering if it were at all possible to hook the graphic tablet up to her windows tablet. I know about usb-to-mini usb adaptors and such, but the graphic tablet came with a disc to install onto the computer to work. So she probably can't use the graphic tablet on the windows tablet, can she? I just feel kind of bad sitting and drawing on my laptop while she's got to go sit at the desktop.

    You should be able to copy the drivers and such for the graphics tablet to a USB drive and then copy them to someplace on her tablet. It also may be possible to download them from the graphic tablet mfr's website. It should then just be a matter of adapting the graphics tablet USB to the USB port of the tablet and then running the installer for the graphics tablet.

    What sort of tablet is the windows tablet? Typically Micro and Mini USB ports are not USB host ports. A host port is required to connect a USB device to the tablet.

    I can tell you if it gas a host port if you provide the model.

I am a PC, not a tablet As far as I am aware, Microsoft are holding back the final look of the desktop version of Windows 8. That's according to CNet in any case. That said, they've had a lot to take on board the last few months feedback wise. I fear they have listened to...
