Default new nexus 7 user with some questions

Hello, I've had my 32gb since Jan 10 and I have some questions. Is this normal for an IPS display? It seems fpse won't see my 64gb USB stick. Works fine when ROMs are in internal. Is there some way to tell fpse to check external storage? Would Google play movies and ota work if I'm rooted? Came from Toshiba Thrive which is ancient now.

There's 2 ways to make USB devices work:

1. BUY the app "Nexus Media Importer" from Google Play (and when I say buy I mean you can't hack it, it verifies its' licence with the server, no matter how you patch it)
2. Root your device and install "StickMount" ( It will mount your USB Drive and create a new folder in "Internal Memory/sda1/blablabla".

Hope this helped!

If it's just a matter of what dragancia sad, then it's very easy if you use StickMount. External storage gets mounted under /sdcard/usbStorage, and most apps should be able to access. I've never used fpse and can't tell you if needs files to be in a specific directory, like the Kindle app does. Nor have I ever used Nexus Media Importer.
