Connect to tablet?

Newbie here.
I read where it is possible to connect my SX20 IS to a PC, what about a tablet, Asus ME173x?

There has been some discussion about this,  and there is no fundamental technical reason why it could not be done, but so far nobody has done so.

"...what about a tablet, Asus ME173x?.."
Advice:- Don't buy junk, cheapie, tablets such as the PenDoPad 7.

I had a, refurbished cheapie, Nexus Asus MemoPad which then I managed to soft brick, before testing the canon camera conection.

The Replacemnt is a [pair] of Nexus-7 Asus ME370t refurbished cheapies. One is now Un-Locked the other Nexus-7 Asus default, both also have "USB debugging" mode enabled in the Developer Options.

ASUS Nexus 7/ME370T [About, XDA-Developers]

UnTested; "...[Toolkit] Wug's Nexus Root Toolkit v1.8.7 [Updated 09/06/14]..."

UnTested; "...How exactly does NRT root my [Nexus-7] device?..."
Answer: "...The method this program utilizes to root your device is not an exploit by any means. 
Instead, this program relies upon the additional low-level access gained from unlocking the bootloader..."

UnTested; "...[GUIDE] DIY Smallest Micro USB OTG to USB Adapter..."

Both ME370t Tablets have now been updated to Android version 4.4.4 and Canon CameraWindow version ["CW"].

Advice:- Don't try a System UpDates at McDonald's as they will most probably fail.

Canon CameraWindow will connect, via Wi-Fi, to my Ixus 240's, Ixus 265's and Sx600's.
Also Remote Shooting and LiveView is possible on the Ixus 265's and Sx600's via Canon CameraWindow. So far I haven't found any other "Apps" that can do Remote Shooting and LiveView.
Also I have not done any extended testing other than a quick test to see that "CW" works.

The Nexus-7 Asus Micro-USB to USB Charging cable [Device] can also be used to transfer Data between a PC [Host] and the Tablets [Device], with the appropriate Drivers enabled/disabled on the PC side. A "USB-Hack" that enables "Tablet Charging" and USB-OtG [Host] is a W.I.P., details, in a later CHDK post.

Also I have, cheapie, Micro USB-OtG Adaptor's [Host], Chinese CardBoard Tablet style USB-KeyBoard, USB-Mouse and 4-Port USB-2 Hub's that work Ok with the Nexus-7 Asus Tablets [Host].

There is space inside the Chinese, CardBoard, Tablet style, USB-Keyboard for a "Hacked-Micro/Mini" 4-Port USB-2 Hub, details, in a later CHDK post.

My 7-Port USB-2 Hub is also Untested with Nexus-7 Asus Tablets. A another W.I.P. is my USB-Rj45, or Cat 5/6, Active USB-2 Extention Adaptor mod, details, in a later CHDK post.

I installed via Google play, Debian noroot by pelya Current Version 14.07.04 - July 4 2014, on my Nexus-7's it runs Ok and includes some basic stuff such as file system and SD card Access and two Terminals.

@ reyalp; Would it be posible to use ChdkPtp-r650 or above by running ChdkPtp in the Android Debian noroot app.

@ All; The [Nintendo] DS Open Camera Control Project will run Ok, in Nintendo DS Android Emulators, on my Nexus-7's Tablets.
  see It may then be posible to use the "OCC" in a similar way to CHDK USB-Remote.


My, Touch Screen, Asus X202EP [PC-Host] will also Boot/Run Grub/Windows/Boot.wim's
and Android-x86-4r41 in dedicated 1-gig partition's. [Just by editing the -boot- "BCD"]
However Canon CameraWindow, Windows/Android, version has "Stoped Working".

I'm not familiar with that app. From the description I would guess it won't have access to the USB port, but if something like gphoto works, then chdkptp should also work.
Don't forget what the H stands for.
