This item is not compatible with the Pandigital Andriod Multimedia Tablet and Color eReader. I found out the hard way and had to return item. There was no connection device that I could use to connect the tablet with the keyboard. In addition, the tablet does not really fit into the carrying case.
I have not yet ordered the keyboard case and or adapter. I wanted to make sure that it was going to work before going thru the hassle of ordering something that would later have to be returned. Once I found this discussion I grabbed my tablet and went searching for the elusive setup for usb. After a LOT of frustration, I did find this on my Pandigital Star tablet: go into settings then: Applications/Development/USB debugging tap on USB debugging in the next screen and it will bring up another window that asks "Allow USB debugging?" tap ok. Once again, I have not tried it out yet since I don't have those items, but thought that I would share what I did find on my tablet. If anyone tries this, please comment to let us know if it worked for you or not. I will report back after I get my keyboard and adapter to let all know if it worked for me.
I. Just got the adapter in the mail yesterday, charged up my tablet last night and am using it to reply to you right now! Works great!! It is taking some getting used to this keyboard but in time I'm sure I will get used to it. Its funny that I was just getting on to post that it works when I saw your reply. :)
I ordered the adapter that a previous poster recommended and changed the settings in my tablet. It works great with this keyboard! I'm so glad that I gave it a try! I really wish that I could change the title of this discussion to "Works Great for Pandigital Tablet". Again, here are the instructions for changing the usb settings on the Pandigital Star Tablet: go into settings then: Applications/Development/USB debugging tap on USB debugging in the next screen and it will bring up another window that asks "Allow USB debugging?" tap ok. As for the adapter that works, here is a link to the ebay auction that has it: http://www.ebay.com/itm/160670101747?ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1439.l2649#ht_1742wt_1165 or just do a search on that site with the keywords of "USB A Female to Right angled 90° degree Mini B Male OTG Host Cable 10cm".
I, too, ordered this keyboard case based on Amazon's suggestion that other customers ordered this item with their Pandigital Android 1GB 7 inch Tablet. I, too, found out the hard way that the Tablet just doesn't fit the case and had to go through the hassle of returning it pronto! Shame on you, Amazon, for misleading your good faith customers!
May Pandigital is too big for the case. The case will not close properly unless the tablet is practically smashing the keyboard - let alone that the stylus and the usb connector get in the way as well. By the way, I ordered two of these keyboards; I have two identical Pandis. Though both keyboards are practically alike, they were from different manufacturers. Neither worked. I also found out the problem with the usb connections, which, by the way, Amazon doesn't disclose when they recommend these keyboards for the Pandis and you end up finding out the hard way - supposing your tablet fits OK. Yes, you will need an adapter - a USB 2.0 female on one end and a usb mini 5 pin on the other. I, too, went nuts looking for it, but gave up. Don't feel the need to order from Hong Kong, and it appears those guys sometimes call a mini a micro, when they are two different types. I already had enough headaches with these things - called it quits. Hope this answers your question. I am glad the item worked for you. :-)
My guess is that it won't work. The Amazon page states that the 72-70FW is 2.9 x 7.5 x 9.5 inches while the Star (which does fit) is 7.9"H x 4.75"W x 0.5"D. I have the Star so that is all I can speak for and the keyboard/case works just perfect for it, snug enough to hold it in place and still have room for the adapter and stylus and close securely.
Thank you,Underberg. That gives me something to compare to. Amazon's dimensions just didn't seem reasonable...2.9" thick? 2.2 lbs? so I went searching other sites to find a more reasonable set of measurements. Adorama (no longer sells the item but still shows specs) has 5.5x7.5x0.5, 19oz. So hope still lives...Go Raiders!!
Added Sunday PM...well, so much for the Raiders...
You must have a different model than the one it does not work with. I just spent 40 minutes on the phone with Pandigital support and they said that there is no way to use a keyboard with this model whether bluetooth or usb, my model number is RR7T40WR1 and it is the red 7" pandigital novel android multimedia tablet/e-reader. I have the adapter and the keyboard, changed the usb setting, but it isn't working. Since my adapter is slightly different that the one you are describing, I did order the exact same one as yours as a last attempt and will post back if it works when I receive it, which won't be until January 2012.
I have a Pandigital Andriod Multimedia Tablet and Color eReader RE200 and I bought the adapter and checked the debugging setting on under applications. The keyboard still will not work. Can anyone tell me if there is something else I can try?
