    You are using Android 1.6 firmware 1.7.4. It looks to be a VIA8505 Chipset device. There are firmwares available. But 1.7.4 is usually fairly stable. BUT, You cannot easily plug in oversized drives on these low power Tablets running anything prior to Froyo-2.2. They simply do not like large (>32Gb) drives. Some firmwares have that capability, but you will not find joy trying to use a PC sized drive on a 1.5/1.6 tablet.
