    Hey, guys, I've just taken delivery of an Asus Transformer (seems very cute and the construction is quite high quality) but I've just realised my personal Android experience is limited to the HTC Desire and Desire S (ie Froyo & Gingerbread).

    The Asus manual isn't up to much and unless I'm missing something, there appears to be no obvious way in 3.1 to copy files from a USB memory stick or SD card to the Transformer.

    Any ideas?

    You should be able to do it within your stock file manager.

    If you're pluggin the USB / SD card directly into the device, then yes, the stock file manager should suffice. If not (you want to transfer files from your computer to the tablet), you need a bit more know-how.

    The Asus (and all Honeycomb devices) uses MTP (Media Transfer protocol) to transfer files to and from the device. If you're on a windows box, just plug and play. If you're on linux or mac, you've got a bit of poking around to do; message me which OS you're on and i'll post the instructions.

    Once you get the device mounted you should see the SdCard directory inside the root directory of the tablet.
