    If I understand you question properly my understanding is that a non-rooted xoom can only use the camera connection kit cable to see and download pictures directly from a digital camera. When I use my camera connection cable connected from my xoom to my Olympus camera the camera and all of my images on my camera are visible through the xoom gallery.

    The camera connectlon also works with rooted Xooms.

    That is true, however, the OP did not clarify whether they are rooted or not, or OS version (3.1 or 3.2). So the information provided was good information if they are not rooted.

    OP: if you are in fact rooted, you can try to use a file explorer program and browse to /mnt/usOTG. However, many of those SD adapters require special drivers and may in fact not be usable with the Xoom. I was not able to get the one I have to work with it. But it will recognize flash drives, external drives and other many (but not all) other USB devices << if rooted.
