    Maybe see if you can cancel it, then re-order?

    Whew, I was getting "mobile.samsung.com server error" all morning. I was finally able to get through and place the order after several hours of trying.

    USB hd's (like wd passport) seems conspicuously absent from supported device types. I hope I'm wrong...

    It works now... Someone on XDA actually built a DIY version, and everything works as-is

    Where are you seeing supported device types? The only thing I can see from the site is the overview description, which lists a few general devices, but nothing specific. Just curious if I am missing something

    To Paul Q:...I got a USB adapter, I connected it with a flash drive and it does not work..apparently we will need some sort of update to "use" it... seems like they would have emailed us or something. I guess they wouldn't want people to know that yet... oh well that let's samsung hold on to some of my money ..not much fortunately..

    I tried to connect my WD passport. Tab reported the device was a "high power" USB device and would not work.

    Currently the only device I have been able to get to work with the USB adapter is a USB mouse.
    None of my scandisk Cruiser Flash drives mount. They plug in the light flashed on the drive but you can not browse for them with FileManger HD or any other app.

    I am not happy, But I have faith it will get sorted out.

    Sorry...just now seeing this. I didn't see a supported device list, but on the info page they say "memory stick". It just seemed very specific, as in no way to interpret it as meaning usb hd.

    So no, you didn't miss anything...I guess I sort of misspoke.

    HMMM... try downloading an app called OI File Manager. I read in a review of the Acer Iconia tab that it is the only app that will let you browse the USB drive contents on that tablet, maybe it will work on the Samsung? I don't have one yet so I can't test it.

    Most likely it will not work. As a previous owner of the Acer Ionia, the Acer was able to provide power to high powered USB devices.
    Unfortunately the Tab 10.1 does not. That's one of several features I miss from having the Acer, but I do like the Tab 10.1 form factor.
    I'll just have to make due with low powered devices. The Tab 10.1 can read large external hard drives, but the drive must supply it's own power, as well as being formatted to Fat 32. I'm currently using a 500 GB powered external hard drive. I have about 450 GB of it formatted to NTFS, and about 50 GB of it formatted to Fat 32 for use with the Tab.

    I bought a 1tb passport just 4 days before the Galaxy tab. I really debated about getting it because I knew that getting power could be an issue, but even if it did not need power, I want NTFS formatting and enjoy how portable the drive is...

    Guess that I will make due with thumb drives. ;-)

    Nexus one owner chiming in here. Why have cell phone makers been so slow to realize how friggin useful a functional USB port would be on a phone? Are the spaced out, high on drugs or what?
