    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..

    From your description I would try another cable, just to rule it in or out.

    Thanks for the suggestion. It appears that part of my problem is a misfitting USB connector on the Tablet. I hooked up a USB cable to is and connected it to my netbook and got no response or indication of charging. By flexing the part of the cable that plugs in to the tablet I was able to get a charging indication but the level of charge did not increase, it only decreased more slowly. I then put the other USB cable on the tablet (USB micro F to stndard USB F) and by flexing it I was able to mount a 4 GB flash drive. What is the best way to open the case so that I can examine the USB micro jack more closely?
