    You will probably need an app manager like Astro. It's free on the Market and on Amazon app store. Works great for moving files around.

    To access the USB drive you will need to open any file manager. Using the one that comes on the TF after you open it tap the back arrow in the top left corner next to the /sdcard/ listing.
    Next open the "Removable" directory and you should see a USBdisk1 or USBdisk2 directory. Open this and then open the file in your editor of choice.

    Note: the USB drive must be plugged into the keyboard dock or to the USB adapter a d not to the charging cable with a female to female gender changer.

    Sorry, I haven't installed my Polaris Office yet but I will try tonight. If I got the software installed, it will work as if on a laptop?? the usb drive will be auto detected??

    Anyway thanks a lot.

    Polaris should be pre-installed on your device.

    It should auto detect the USB drive when you plug it in as long as it is formatted for FAT32 or NTFS
