Question Compatible USB Host Cables

Does anyone have any recommendations for a compatible USB host cable for use with a USB Flash drive?

Would this work for example?

Don't think the nook supports this, you need to have support for being a usb host for it to work. Perhaps all the views are people hopeful for said support?

You might be able to get that to work if you write a driver. Otherwise, it's no more likely to work than any other USB device that you manage to connect via adapters.

Thanks for the clarification.

I'm coming from the Archos 101 which does have USB host drivers.

cheers

I think that USB Host support is probably just a matter of time on the Nook Color. It needs EHCI_omap driver etc. The folks working on the Beagle Board have a similar chipset environment (only the TS chip in the Nook Color is just a catalog version of but similar to the one on the beagle board). I saw a thread where they were doing some tests for USB Host and i think they are having some preliminary success. I think i'm going to press the Easy button on this one and just see when support gets added.
