    is there a way to connect an external hard drive to our bionics?

    Like how you can with a laptop or desktop? I just wanna transfer movies and stuff because im running out of storage.

    Also can we use a 32g micro sd in our phones without modifying anything?

    Not sure about your first question, but the answer to your second question is yes. I'm running a 32gb Class 10 card and it works great.

    If you had a lapdock, you could use the USB port to connect an external drive.

    Have you successfully connected an external drive via the USB port? I've tried a Seagate GoFlex 1TB and a 1.5TB and the system won't recognize either of them.

    Issues: Will the USB power the drives? Are the drive sizes too large?

    So can we use any 32g or 64g micro sd card or does it need to be a certain kind?

    Afaik the Bionic uses Fat32 and not NTFS and that is why you can't use a 1.0 - 1.5TB drive.

    yes any Mico32g card, but Class 10

    on 64bit go to this one - http://www.amazon.com/SanDisk-microS...microsdxc+64gb

    Hope this helps mate

    What about accessing a network drive? Is there a way to browse NAS and stream videos from it?
