    Yes it is possible. I am running ICS (android 4.0.3). I ordered 2 micro sd host cables from ebay for $4.34 including shipping. They came from Hong Kong in a week. I installed USB Mass Storage Watcher from the market and my xoom now sees my flash drive at /media/usb.

    Yup..definitely possible..I just connected my 500GB WD HDD, and it worked like a charm on my rooted WiFi xoom running official ics..I use stickmount though...the USB watcher app tends to be a bit slow for my taste

    Are you rooted but running stock or are you running a different kernel?

    Well cable arrived.. so I guess you cant connect USB drives without rooting as none of mine work :(

    I updated the os to ics on my samsung gs2 and now can use my otg cable to connect thumb drives etc (still wont recognize larger hard drives but I think thats because they are not FAT32 format) i'm using v3.2 on my XOOM and does not sseem to recognize and external hard drives what so ever, I can connect a mouse and keyboard but no usb hd. Waiting for ics to be available in Aus.
    Seriously how long can it take to "test" ics on wifi only version?!

    Did you succeed adding USB drives with OTG table attached to your tablet ?
