Sounds awesome! So, I suppose any powered hub works. Did you format the HD in any specific way or by the help of some fancy software (just wondering as I think Fat32 cannot be formatted under Win7 if the harddisk exceeded size x) ?
Thanks

Tried with different USB Drives I have at home, but none works (well, NTFS of course).

Has anyone tried a bigger driver via powered USB Hub yet?
Or 64GB Sticks etc?

If your tab is rooted you can get "usb mass storage otg" from the market which support your ntfs formatted drives :) no need for fat 32 crap anymore!

Edit:think i figured how to go around. Find attaches the. Apk file. I found a few seconds delay while first opening. Also sometimes i had to reopen the app to allow root acces.because it didnt ask for root access on first run. Apart from the first run, its a breeze afterwords :)

So it's true, you actually have to format your 500GB drive as FAT32 to get it working?
I guess this means no HD movies (files bigger than 4 GB) right?
