Transferring files with microUSB
How can I transfer files to the equiso from my hard drive connecting directly with the microUSB port on the equiso?

I can't find the option to mount it. My computer recognizes it as a "smart TV" but has no option to use its storage.

On the equiso side I've tried going to Settings-> Device-> Storage -> Unmount internal with no luck.

I suppose I could push files using ADB, but I'm looking for a more drag & drop solution. Any advice?

@aparanoia:
1- The USB cord that came with the Equiso is pinned for power only. Use another USB-microUSB cord to connect to a USB HDD.
2. Go wireless by using WiFi File Explorer to transfer files from any device with a Web browser.
Good luck!

RE: Transferring files with microUSB
I am using my phone's USB to microUSB, not the one that came with the device (that one doesn't even work to power on the device!).

Can you explain step 1? When I plug it in from my computers USB to the microUSB slot, I don't get access to storage. I am currently using AirDroid to transfer files but it is SLOOOOW.

RE: Transferring files with microUSB
Where is the notification window? Sounds like a stupid question, but I'm only familiar with android phones (not tablet mode). Pulling down from the top does nothing, is there a something obvious I'm overlooking?

The notifications appear when you click on the clock at bottom right.

The docked notification bar is not visible by default. You can enable it in settings, Euquiso will reboot upon ticking the checkbox.

@Pimmr is there an option to make it disappear in Netflix once enabled (without rebooting of course)

Re: Transferring files with microUSB
No you can not switch between showing/hiding the notification bar. I have seen such mods though in some custom tablet roms, perhaps it wil be available in a future rom.
