I also know of at least one tablet (I don't know the real brand but it's sold under several different names, of which Digiko N500 is one) that has nand flash, internal sd and external sd memory. The unused part of the nand flash is also mounted as usable memory, if I recall it right it's been named "nand memory". So this tablet has 3 kinds of user memory. But this is a rare exception.

I thought of a way to see if it is on or not.
I plugged into into my phone - when it is on the phone starts to charge, when it off the phone doesn't recharge
The test worked
When i keep the power button pressed the phone recharges (ie the tablet is on)
As soon as i release the power button the phone stops charging (ie the tablet is off)
Don't know if that adds any clues to the problem
But I have taped the power button down and switched every energy using app on my phone on
(Hopefully my phone recharging will drain the battery then I can start from scratch.
Just a thought - is it possible the reset button could have become stuck - so as soon as I take my finger of the power button the tab resets and shuts down

I'll let it drain - and try the procedures
If they don't work I'll take it to a Mediacom shop and see what they can do.
(Although at this point I am seriously thinking of getting another - the postage and repair bill will almost certainly be more than it's worth)

Now retry the flashing procedure with a correct firmware using LiveSuit. UsbPro does work, but is a disaster to use. LiveSuit is far more stable and user-friendly.
Thank you Squirrel61. one of my friends have a all winner a10 tablet and i am in a similar situation wherein after flashing CM9 touchscreen didnt work and i thought of reverting back to stock rom with the back up that we had taken but unfortunately now its stuck at boot logo and also i cant get into cwm recovery. pc is detecteing it as unknown device and live suit cannot recognise it. after reading your post i am now trying to drain the battery and check if livesuit detects it. I am a new bee and so can you please help me in choosing correct rom. Model is Apad 711
with Allwinner A10 cortex 8 512 ram and power and volume+ and - keys it has hdmi mini usb sd card slot and power is dc 5volts there is a front camera as well.
I will post the results and if this works you would be greater than god to me.

I have problem with my Ainol Aurora (A10 CPU tablet). I tried to flash it through Livesuit but it stopped at 3% and nothing happened for about 5 minutes so i turned it off. Now device seems to be dead, when i click switch on button tablet doesn't react. When i try to reflash it through Livesuit i got message "USB device not recognized" from windows everytime i plug it in to USB. My system is Windows 7 64bit. Can anyone pls help me with that ?
Thanks in advace.

It looks like your tablet is stuck in the second stage of Livesuit, in which case it indeed acts as an unrecognized USB device (when starting the process, you hear a USB device disconnect sound followed by a USB device connect sound which means that the tablet has reconnected as a different device). To get out of this, you need to power down the tablet. Try holding the power button for at least 20 seconds while connected to the computer. When you hear the USB disconnect sound, you know the tablet is off and you can disconnect it and restart the whole flashing process. If you can't get it switched off, you have to wait until the battery is drained, then recharge and retry.
The update stopping at 3% can be caused by a faulty image. I know the Ainol download pages are not very reliable, so you might try to redownload it or try a different image.
