    Yes, you can. If:1. You are rooted, 2. You have an OTG Cable(AKA Motorola Camera Connection Kit), and 3. If you have a drive formatted in NTSF you could use this APK to mount it and make it useable: [HOW TO] Mount External Hard Drive You will have to have USB debugging turned on as well in the Settings of your Xoom. From what I read a FAT formatted drive should be readable with just the OTG cable. Welcome to the forum!

    I understand that with the 3.1 update you will be able to connect to you usb external drive. If you search these forums there is also the possibility to stream over wifi.

    I have been able to use my external hdd with the xoom. I am rooted and used that apk, NTFS Mount, along the Motorola usbotg cable. Its a 320g Western Digital HDD formated in NTFS. In all my experiences the Western Digital HDD's all come pre-formated in FAT 32, so changing the file system might be nessecary but not sure.
