Default How do I use the USB port on the Toshiba A30?

Anyone? Can I only use it for upgrading the firmware, or can I use it to watch stuff saved on my USB drive?

None, you can't do anything with it.

^^^^ Yeah, because none of the Toshiba firmwares to date made no use of the USB port. Kinda belongs in the "if ifs were skiffs we could all go sailing away" category, but if Toshiba would ever open source the firmware software, some clever software engineers could do a lot of stuff with those USB ports - play movies from a USB external drive, download movies to a USB drive or USB memory stick . . . .
