Q1. Can I read from the users memory card?
How to access a PS Vita memory card using PlayStation®Mobile program and how to move that data from PS Vita to PC?
Whilst there is currently no mechanism to read from a users memory card / media libraries through the PlayStation®Mobile SDK, there are a couple of different ways that you can get data from your PS vita to your PC.
A possible solution that you could look at is to use the System.Net libraries to push an image up to the internet (through a self hosted / image hosting service) and then download it on the computer. For this to work, you should look at the System.IO File / FileStream classes to write the files on the device (into the applications working directory), and then the System.Net classes to make a WebRequest up to a server.
This is only just one possible solution and you should also consider that this should work on all devices (not just a PS Vita), some of which may not have a network connection available (Tablets).
Q2. How can I load a file from my PlayStation®Vita?
A2. You are currently restricted to files within the /Application/ , /Documents/ and /Temp/ directories, so you cannot access media assets the user has loaded onto the device. You can however export images to the users Photo Media Gallery.
Q3. How to run the PlayStation®Mobile demos on PlayStation®Vita?

Q5. Does PlayStation®Mobile support USB or Bluetooth connections?
A5. There is currently no support in PlayStation®Mobile for USB connections. Unfortunately there is also currently no support for Bluetooth connections either, however we are aware that people may like this feature in the future.
Q6. Is there a way to delete specify project deployed on my PlayStation™Certified device?
A6. At this moment in time, you are not able to select specific applications to be removed which have previously been deployed onto your device.
Q7. Unable to run demos on PlayStation®Vita
A7. On the PS Vita, please could you ensure that the device is connected a network (Wifi or carrier) and load up the PS Vita Development Assistant application? I would also recommend a restart of the PSS Studio just to be on the safe side.
Q8. ADB Driver Installation Instructions for Sony Tablet S and Sony Tablet P
A8. The following guide covers the Sony Tablet S but the same procedure needs to be followed for the Sony Tablet P. This guide covers Windows 7, Windows Vista and Windows XP.
Please follow the following link which covers how to install a) the android SDK and b) the Google USB driver
Please ensure that the procedures in step 1 are followed successfully before progressing to step 2. For some users, step 1 may be sufficient for the installation on plugging in their device. If the adb installation is unsuccessful after step 1, please proceed to step 2.
Please let us know if there are any problems with the guide or the installation.
