Using the tablet for the first time
This section provides basic information about how to start using your tablet.
It covers below steps followed by the details.
Connecting the AC adaptor
Turning on the power
Initial Setup
Turning off the power
Use a virus-check program and make sure it is updated regularly.
Never format storage media without checking its content - formatting
destroys all stored data.
It is a good idea to periodically backup internal storage of the tablet to
an external media. General storage media is not durable or stable
over long periods of time and under certain conditions may result in
data loss.
Connecting the AC adaptor
When battery power becomes low, you must charge it.
Use only the tablet connected to an AC power source to charge the battery.
Never attempt to charge the battery with any other charger.
The AC adaptor can automatically adjust to any voltage ranging from 100
to 240 volt and to a frequency of either 50 or 60 hertz, enabling you to use
this product in almost any country/region. The adaptor converts AC power
to DC power and reduces the voltage supplied to this tablet.

2. Micro-USB cable
Depending on the model, either a 2-pin or 3-pin AC adaptor will be
bundled with the tablet.
The supplied Micro-USB cable conforms to safety rules and is
designed to provide adequate and steady power supply to the tablet.
Please make sure to use the supplied Micro-USB cable when you
charge the tablet or purchase an optional USB cable from TOSHIBA
website.
Attach the AC adaptor when you need to charge the battery or you want to
operate from AC power. It is also the fastest way to get started, because
the battery will need to be charged before you can operate from battery
power.
Always use the TOSHIBA AC adaptor that was included with your
tablet, or use AC adaptors specified by TOSHIBA to avoid any risk
damage to the tablet. Use of an incompatible AC adaptor could cause
fire or damage to the tablet possibly resulting in serious injury.
TOSHIBA assumes no liability for any damage caused by use of an
incompatible adaptor.
Never plug the AC adaptor into a power source that does not
correspond to both the voltage and the frequency specified on the
regulatory label of the unit. Failure to do so could result in a fire or
electric shock, possibly resulting in serious injury.
When you connect the AC adaptor to the tablet, always follow the
steps in the exact order as described below. Connecting the plug to a
live electrical outlet should be the last step otherwise the USB
connector could hold an electrical charge and cause an electrical
shock or minor bodily injury when touched. As a general safety
precaution, avoid touching any metal parts.
Never place your tablet or AC adaptor on a wooden surface, furniture,
or any other surface that could be marred by exposure to heat since
the tablet base and AC adaptor's surface increase in temperature
during normal use.

sure to reformat it with a device such as digital camera or digital audio
player that uses microSD/SDHC memory cards, not with the format
command provided within Windows.
Should you need to format all areas of the memory card, including the
protected area, you will need to obtain an appropriate application that
applies the copy protection system.
Media care
Observe the following precautions when handling the card.
Do not twist or bend cards.
Do not expose cards to liquids or store in humid areas or lay media
close to containers of liquid.
Do not touch the metal part of a card or expose it to liquids or let it get
