    Default mount hard drive over usb?
    i noticed several "mount" binaries in /sbin. i was wondering if it is possible to connect an external hard drive to the 30 pin (using the data in/out pins?) and mount it with say mount_msdos, in the case of my fat32 hard drive.
    if it was easy (or possible) im sure someone smart would have done it already, but i have not seen anything on this. so what am i missing here? i dont know much about mounting disks so explanations would be appreciated. thanks

    I believe the iPhone hardware doesn't support being the USB master.
    I think this is a case of something the Motorola Droid does. However I don't think Android supports anything more complicated than a keyboard.

    There was a post somewhere about the iPhone when people found the droid hardware supported USB master.
