    In settings under storage I see the usb drive listed . I just cant seem to figure out how to open or save anything to the usb drive. Do I need an app to manage those files ?

    Grab yourself file manager HD from the market and browse to /mnt/usb_storage for usb or /mnt/external_sd for your add-on SD card.

    You should not need any special software, so long as you can see the drive, however if the drive contains many files you may just have to be patient and wait for a while until they show.

    I am also having this problem. I am connecting via USB my portable hard drive. I tried the file manager HD, and still cannot access USB on my hard disk and my Micro SD card. Any suggestions?

    I've used Astro and Dual File Manager on my A500, seem to work well.
