Is it really so hard to understand that you have to connect usb to a computer and copy the files BEFORE pressing the button?

This meens that usb_host isn't writeable.
I Tried chmod 777 usb_host but then i get "chmod: usb_host: Read-only file system".
I get this with every USB i try (just a usb-stick or an external hard drive (250 gb, 1 tb, ... everything i have ))

This is weird. I tested this just a minute ago on my A101IT:
Code:
$ adb shell


BusyBox v1.7.2 (2012-02-28 22:48:59 CET) built-in shell (ash)
Enter 'help' for a list of built-in commands.

/ $ su

# sh
sh

everything works as expected. the usb stick is formatted with fat filesystem, what is yours?

check "mount | grep usb_host" for more information
