    I have two tablets A500 and a Toshiba AT100 and I can view/use external hard drive and flash drive on the A500. Yet not on the AT100 and was wondering why? I am using not only the same file manager (Astro) but also same drives. Why can't I see them on Toshiba?

    Perhaps the Toshiba doesn't support USB external storage. Perhaps it only supports input devices on USB.

    Hi, welcome to the forum. As dansamy said, the A500 probably has the necessary drivers to support the external drive and the AT100 doesn't. I'm going to move your thread to the Toshiba Tablets section for you to see if anything can be done to get that drive working for you. Good luck!
