    Using the Xoom to copy from my canon camera to an USB external hard drive

    Hi!..
    I just want to ask you if it's possible to do this with the Xoom:

    Basically, I want the xoom to copy files from my canon camera to an external hard drive.

    So I want to be able to plug an USB Device (what would be a compact flash memory adapter)
    Then I want to plug an external usb powered drive and then copy the pictures.

    Is that possible?..

    If not, is there any workaround or idea that you may have regarding this?

    Thanks in advance!

    PnP

    I could be wrong, but I'd don't think its possible without root.

    Hi. I'm sorry I didn't know about rooting, but I'm just researching to buy a xoom and I didn't previously read the forum (my mistake!)...

    Do you think that with rooting I can:

    - Attach an external USB-powered hard drive via USB
    - Copy files to the hard drive device.

    Thanks!

    I'll second that. Yes you can. This is my plan for a 2 week vacation in Italy with my Xoom and Canon 50D. I've done evrything but the CF card adapter. I have an OTG USB cable that connects to a small, portable 640GB drive and reads/writes just fine. That same cable will allow me to jack in the CF adapter. I'll need this because I'll shoot about 400 pics per day.

    Another option for camera connectivity is to pick up a EyeFi card and CF adapter, allowing you to wirelessly transfer pics to the tablet, which could then be transferred to the portable hard drive.

    Thank!.. this information was very helpful!..
    - Did you have to "root" the xoom for this?
    - What software are you using for accesing / copying into the external hard drive?
    - What cable do you have? a Micro USB to "normal" USB OTG?
    - Is your portable device/hard drive USB Powered? is it ok with that?

    Thanks for your information!...
