    the short answer is no - there is no hardware support for that in A500

    Well, except for mouse, and joystick. I don't know if can recognized an external DVD-CD-ROM.

    if you're planning to view files from your external drives (USB Flashdrive or HDD's) even it's NTSF format, update it via OTA to 3.2.

    I can watch all movies from my external HDD 500GB and 1TB.

    Hi, How do you view whats on a USB thumb drive ? It flashes as it reading it but I don't see a name for the drive... I have Open Manager app.
    Any help would be great

    You will need a File browser app like FILE EXPERT which you can down load from the android market - ir free. Use it to browse to the USB DRIVE.
