    Just wondering who is actually making use of the USB host mode capabilities? Also what are you using it for?

    Personally I use an HP keyboard and sometimes a mouse.

    Does anyone use a USB hub? Ive been trying but I can't seem to get it to work consistantly. Any suggestions?

    I have been using host mode extensively since it was included in nook tweeks. I use a logitech bluetooth keyboard, a logitech laser mouse, a Belkin powered 7 port hub, and a 7 in 1 card reader. This setup allows me to read/write to flash drives, sd cards, and access my Nikon D70 camera directly. I import pictures from my camera to the nook so I can be sure I have the right shot. As I do landscape photography, I don't have to worry about my subjects moving (most haven't moved in the last thousand years or so). The 7"screen on the nook gives me a good image so I can see better than the 3" display on the camera.
    Having access to my flash drives and sd cards gives me limitless storage for backups and roms. Here is a picture of my current setup taken with the Nikon and downloaded to the nook.

    I saw your setup on another forum actually, it was what inspired me too create a setup of my own, lol. Where'd you get the micro USB (m) to USB (f) connector? Right now I'm using a cable I spliced together myself, but I think I have a cold solder joint because it doesn't seem to consistently connect properly.

    It is a very nice setup. I am amazed at how you have been able to thoroughly netbookize (is that a term) the nook. This is a very capable device with just a little work.

    Amazon also sells an adapter. That is where I got mine. $3.44 for the adapter. It took 4 days to get here. I tried radio shack with no luck as well as the local computer store.

    Gloria dear, I highly doubt it if what you mean are USB powered speakers. They would draw too much power from the Nook. I understand from a lot of users that even some thumbdrives don't work due to power issues. But you'll never know. ;)

    So far only USB drives seem to work consistently
    So until 3,2 is out device support is limited
