What can you do with the USB Port?
So far I have tried the following devices and can confirm they work when plugged into my ViewSonic gTab running VEGAn 1.0.0b3
Dell USB Keyboard
Dell USB Mouse
Sandisk 4 Gb USB Jump Drive
Anyone else tried connecting devices here?

I have tried both a card reader and a 1gig thumb drive in my usb port without success. It seems as though on my tablet now power is out put on the usb port as the led on both the ard reader and the thumb drive don't light up. Is ther anything that you have to do to enable the usb port? I have a MID710A running 2.1 allegedly with an A8 processor.
Are you just plugging the things in? On some tablets, you have to boot with the memory stick or keyboard installed for it to work. This is not true for all tablets. Some have plug and play capable USB ports.

Hi, Thanks Gurgle for the suggestion. I have tried plugging in before turning on without success. The usb icon does not show up on the task bar (like I have seen in some other screen shots) so it looks like I need to enable it somewhere as my PC finds a device connected and then can't find a driver so I need to do some digging to get it working.
I have used a keyboard and a mouse, but have been unable to get the memstick to work... running tnt lite 2. Would be interested in anyone who can help with this, being able to expand the memory would make this thing even sweeter! And it already ROCKS!
I only got my thumb drive to work when reformatting it to Fat32 - only then was it able to read my files. I found that tidbit buried on another site somewhere
The new Vegan Beta 5.1 supports NTFS
* NTFS support (this gives us the ability to mount drives formatted NTFS which is popular on Windows machines…. Larger File Support)
I am interested in trying VEGan. Being noob though and just flashing tnt I don't want to get in over my head with anything either. But that is on my list of things to do!!
Flashing to vegan is just as hard as flashing to tnt lite. I had that before I went to vegan and I enjoy vegan much more. I don't know about battery life on tnt lite but I've had almost a solid 2 hours of use and I'm still at 100% battery life. And I only feel a slight lag after waking up the tablet but its gone in a couple seconds. I truely reccomend vegan.

Yeah battery life is bit of issue. I have flashed 3 tablets now to tnt and do feel Vegan will be just fine to follow. I'm curious as to how different it runs & looks. I haven't seen video or pics of it.
