Moving files around on 3.2
I understand theres no write ability on sd card. However, I have 4 movies on my Xoom I would like to simply move to sd card... Can this be done without connecting to pc and moving it around that way? I am assuming I would need to move movies to pc and then to Xoom if cannot do directly on Xoom with 3.2

No you don't, you need the cable to get access to the card. When you click on the Xoom icon in "My Computer" on your PC you will have two folders available, internal storage and SD card. Click on internal storage, find your movies, highlight the movies, right click and choose "cut." Now go back to where you had the two storage options and choose your SD Card. After you open the card make a folder for your movies if you are so inclined (I was), if you created a new folder make sure and open it up then right click and choose "paste."
Voila, your movies are on the card and you never had to move them to your PC.

Stock 3.2 SD card is Read Only. It is a bit ridiculous, but if you root you will have full read and write support. I really don't need my PC anymore.
Xoom: Unlocked, Rooted, Overclocked at 1.5, and on Tiamat 2.1.0 Tachi
Kyocera Echo: Waiting for 2.3 fix.
Source Code Released!!

The price we pay to be pioneers...
Hope to see the day we can Read/Write to the SD card on a standard Xoom, or perhaps even a portable hard drive (now I'm really reaching). The SD slot, as it is now, offers limited functionality and certainly hasn't been worth the wait.
I hope the 4G upgrade does more to excite me than this has!
