Hello all,

I am not sure if i connect a 500 gb usb external hard disk to my xoom through micro usb otg cable. Can anyone answer this? IF positive, I will buy a 500 gb instantly.

That depends.

I am running Tiamat manta ray 2.0.1 on UK MZ601 3g xoom and I can mount an external WD usb powered 500Gb drive over otg with no problems.For stock 3.01which I came from it didn't work.

I use usb otg watcher (available in market place) to mount and es filemanager to move, and copy and browse etc

Regards,

I have a new WD Passport Essential 750GB HDD that works fine with the Moto OTG adaptor and the USB Mass storage Watcher OTG app. My Xoom's configuration is in my sig.

I'm still in stock 3.0.1 uk and I can use my 500, 750 and 1T WD passports fine by mounting through terminal emulator.
