    I am not 100% positive, but i think this will be one of the new features we get from ice cream sandwich.

    That would explain why my host cable doesn't work at all even though I now have 3.2!

    WIFI Stock 3.2

    The Host cable will work with USB Keyboard and USB Mouse and even a USB Hub just fine, but alas xoom doesn't have the drivers for using a usb flash drive.
    You can even use the Wireless USB mouse and keyboards plugged into the USB Hub.

    Like Chuck said, it works fine on some stuff. I can see USB mice, and my Canon camera (testing the remote control apps). It can't do anything with drives. I can plug in my portable HDD and it spins up, but the Xoom doesn't know what to do with it without rooting.

    Welcome to the forum.Glad you decided to join us. If you root your Xoom the wait is over, I have 32Gb internal storage, 32Gb sdcard and a 32Gb stick and they all work well together.

    If you root and have problems you can take your Xoom back to stock an relock.
