Got a Logitech USB Webcam working (when USB Camera enabled is set in the options menu) awful picture colourwise (looks better quality that aside).

Don't know if it would have worked in slave mode (hence the option).

Really weird - on screen the USB camera was recording in reverse - but when played back the video is the correct way around!

hotswapping of usb sticks works depending on the usb stick used.
it works perfectly fine with a freecom 2.5" external harddrive, and kingston datatraveler locker.

also, USB numpads work(although some buttons aren't recognised properly and num-lock doesn't work as it should either)

the "htc desire" part in the 1st post can be replaced with "android phone", it's not just the desire that can't be recognised.
not a problem for me though, got bluetooth for file transfer and wifi for tethering.

You could technically add Huawei 3G USB dongles to the Working list, as they do work. But someone needs to work out how to get the 3G options to show up in the Vega's settings menu... anybody know what files need to be modified? I'll give it a go when I get home from work tonight. But any help would be appreciated.

I really would like to know if this little guy is going to work: Integrated Keyboard Case For 10" Tablet Should do I suppose, and the tablet it's made for looks to be of similar dimensions.

£30 quite for a not too shappy looking case with integrated keyboard!

it will certainly work, although i can't guarantee all keys will work as expected.
any USB mouse or keyboard should work, specifically because of the importance of those 2 devices they are designed to always work with generic USB HID drivers like the ones on the tablet.

Saitek Wireless Notebook Mouse works nicely apart from centre scroll wheel which has no effect (need to research further)

Cruzer 16GB memory stick works fine though I still don't like ejecting without an eject command (is there one?) Update:- Apparently there isn't one currently

Is this a big issue. Can't say I have ever trashed a USB stick in many years of just pulling out ;-) or have I just been lucky

Maybe putting your Vega into suspend before taking out the memory stick would reduce the risk ?


Adding to the list of compatable devices

Technika USB tiny mouse (cheap tesco brand)
Philips Freevents wireless keyboard
Bush USB 4 port hub PHX03H
RunDisk 2.0 4gb pen drive

Some of the media keys work too - Vol + -, back and forward arrow button and search button

Esc = back button
Windows key = Menu
F1 also = Menu
F4 = suspend + wake up

Will add more KB shortcuts as I find them

Do all portable HDD's Desktop HDDs and pendrives need to be fat32 formatted for them to be recognised ?

Won't the above list be better edited now with a comprehensive list sectioning different devices with what manufacturers and models with full/part/no functionality.

At least the list would be fairly mapped with the members devices.
