    Reading data from external1 not working with any file manager.

    Hi, with my Xoom I'm currently using File Manager HD to write to external1, and while I can write to external1, I can't read data directly from the external1 (so far I've tried PDFs and JPEGs). So the PDFs that I've saved to external1 must be transfered back to Xoom's internal storage before I can read them. I downloaded the Astro file app to double check and even with Astro I can write to the external1 but I can't read the data that stored there directly from external1's directory.
    Please help or clarify the issue for me if you can.

    Thanks

    if you want the xoom to automatically detect, you need to create the external1 folders. you need to mirror the sdcard folders

    for example:
    music
    movies
    pictures

    otherwise use file manager to navigate to and view the files

    doesn,t work

    When using the file managers to navigate and open the data, the file managers can locate the data but the open or open with commands are not opening the data.
    Are there any other suggestions or ideas? Any and all help is appreciated.

    make sure you use the quickoffice to open pdf/other files.

    jpg and so on can be opened by gallery, other file types like avi can be opened by rockplayer ( free app)

    office files and so can also be opened by quickoffice, some files like .tif cannot be. ​
