    I need to do this away from the computer. I tried a USB hub (non-powered) but no luck.

    Has anyone figured out a workaround?


    Thanks all...

    You cannot hookup an USB drive to TC970 as the 30 pin connector is not wired for OTG. It only acts as a device. In a nut shell there is no power coming out to your USB drive!

    What he said. For all intents and purposes, your tablet IS a usb drive.

    The only storage you can physically use is a micro usb card if you have dropbox you can upload from your computer and download on the tablet.

    Sounds like you are ready for a Windows 8 tablet actually :)

    It would be fun to have both IMO.:rolleyes:
    This delay of getting Windows 8 tablets out may pay off for Microsoft. We're all having fun with our tablets right now...but by the time they release the Win8 ones, we'll be ready for more serious tablets for regular computing stuff.
