    Hi, new to forum so hello to one and all, I have a question concerning connecting a USB stick (FAT32) to my Asus EePad Transformer TF101. If I use the Asus Transformer lead that has a male USB plug and use a female to female 3.0 USB adaptor would I be able to read/write to a USB stick? Any info would be most appreciated.

    I think you will need to purchase the USB-adaptor. You might be able to use a special wired USB Host cable. But not just a Female/Female USB adapter. The Sister forum for Transformers might have a better answer. I just get my USB port from my Docking station.

    Welcome to the forum!

    gurgle is correct, the included charging cable only has USB Slave support. You need to get a USB Host adapter or the keyboard dock.

    Something like this:

    Thanks for the info, saved me buying a female adaptor and maybe I am now thinking about buying the keyboard dock instead.

    I have the keyboard and I think it is just awesome. Extra battery, 2 USB ports, touchpad, clamshell, physical keyboard.
