    Has anyone tried this? Essentially what I'm trying to do is hook up an external hard drive directly to the epic 4g touch, without a computer. I tried using an external hard drive with a female to female usb coupler and micro usb cable connected on the other side to the epic 4g touch. The phone wouldn't recognize anything and actually the hard drive won't even power on. Does anyone know if a micro usb host cable would do the trick? Again to be clear, I'm trying to use the epic 4g touch as a usb host so I can connect an external hard drive and view the and transfer files from the hard drive to it directly, without a computer. Thanks
