    USB Flash drive on xoom

    Hey guys, im running a stock wifi only xoom, updated to 3.2

    I just got an OTG cable and want to see if i can mount a usb flash drive to my xoom.

    I plugged a mouse into it and it worked fine, i plugged my flash drive into it (a kingston 4gb data traveler) and it lights up and all, but i dont know how to access it with the xoom so i can copy to and from it.

    Thanks in advance for all your assistance!

    Not doable without root to the best of my knowledge.

    Update: I followed the guide that posted above and it work well. My xoom is now rooted! I paid for and installed root explorer, but i still cant mount a usb thumb drive.

    Can anyone help me with mounting it? And also what else can i do now that this is rooted?

    Your USB drive should be FAT32 partitioned. External hard drives should be NTFS. Also if your thumbdrive is a Cruzer drive you will have issues. Try the mount.apk in our hacking section or from the Market download USB Mass Storage.
    You can overclock, flash themes, back up all of your apps and their data, create a complete system image recovery, watch movies and listen to music from external HDDs, freeze bloatware, write to and from an SDcard...
    SDcard System Image Backup Using ClockworkMod Recovery v3.2.0.0.(RC4). Back yours up today!

    I use ES file explorer (which is free) to locate my flash drive, its in the USBOTG folder, you get to this by hitting the symbol in the top left corner which looks like a memory card.

    Many thanks to you all. I am now rooted (from 3.2), and mounting usb flash drives AND even my external harddrive! I used the usb mass storage app from the market as suggested and it works great.

    Again, thank you all so much for your help, I hope that I can repay you somehow someday!
