    Is it possible to connect a tablet running JB 4.1 to a phone (rooted) running ICS 4.0 via a usb cable and move files between the 2 ?
    In particular I'm wanting to move photos from the phone to the tablets sd card

    My suggestion, and easier in the long run, would be to get a free 2GB DropBox account and you could move files in either direction by putting them into the cloud. What you are suggesting may in fact be possible but is not all that simple. DropBox is dead simple.

    Your suggestion isn't going to be practical in this instance because I shall be abroad and wanting to avoid data charges.
    If there's no other way I shall just have to do it by swapping the memory card between the devices
    cheers

    That would be a good option.

    The tablet has usb host and if I connect a memory stick it detects it and I can move files but when I connect my phone.....Huawei Ascend G300 .....it doesn't :(

    I think it should but I may be wrong. Try going to settings > storage > mount.

    You may need to change file managers to something like ES File Explorer. If the phone card's format is acceptable it should be able to read it but that's not always the case. If it says unmount, you should be able to see it.
