    I just got my G Tablet, rooted it with Clockwork and TnT G-Harmony, and when I try to insert my thumbdrive, the tablet doesn't recognize it at all. Anyone know why? Do I need to format it to NTFS or something? I just bought the thumbdrive a couple of days ago.

    It doesn't pop up either. You have to go to your fav file explorer and open the USBSTICK directory.

    Ah, I see it now. Tank you. Would you happen to know how to save files onto my SD card instead of using internal storage?

    Copy them to the SDCARD? Not sure what files you are talking about. Give me some details and then I can help you out.

    I have my SD Card mounted into my tablet, when I go on the internet on my tablet and save a picture, it saves to my internal storage as opposed to my sd card. Can I change that so it saves things to my SD Card instead of my internal storage?
