Default Me tablet swallowed me SD card

I have an el-cheapo android tablet and it has swallowed my external mini SD card (possibly I was a little forceful) - now I can't see how to get into the tablet but the USB socket works fine - is there any way to use a USB Flash stick to work the same as the miniSD - Total beginner here folks.

Yes. They operate identically.
But a stick..., well... sticks out!

I can see umpteen instructions on how to move apps to an external SD card - how about moving to an external USB storage.

There are some answers to this question on the net saying "You can do it." but I can't seem to find instruction on how ?

Should be the same.
Afaik an external SD card = flash memory, a.k.a. SSD = external USB storage. Only the connector, USB, is different.
However, when on the USB volume the app is stored. I don't expect it to be able to run from there (haven't tried) like it can from the SD card.

This article may be useful if it can be related to USB storage- haven't had chance to fully read it yet:
How to move almost all Android apps to SD card (no root required)

Thanks for the replies

That article is 2 years and several hard- and software iterations old...
Applicable to Android 2.2 (Froyo). Currently Android is at version 4.1.1 Jellybean...
Although there will of course still be many 2.2 users out there.
