I have been able to insert a 32GB SD card and it is recognized. However, I don't seem to be able to use the usb port. From System Settings->Storage: Enable Media Scanning is set for both SD and USB. Ext SD currently shows 32GB SD card Mounted. USBHost1 shows: Mount SD Card. Insert SD card for mounting. I have tried connecting a USB Flash/Thumb/Zip drive via the supplied USB Female to micro USB male cable, but there is no indication of life. I have also tried connecting a USB multi card reader with a 4GB SD card inserted to the same USB cable .. but again there is no response. Is there something else that I should try? Thanks in advance..
