So I was stumbling through the settings last night, and I noticed that under "Storage" there's a subsection that allows you to choose to enable USB Host mode and media scan.

 

This thing will support being a USB host?!  This leads to my question,

 

who on earth makes a Micro USB-B (male) -> USB-A (female) adapter cable?!

 

The very thought is absurd, as it scoffs in the face of the purpose of the different-sized (and gendered) plugs.

 

So, does anyone make such a cable?  Has anyone gotten their G3 tablet to function as a USB host?  What did you connect?

Archos make some USB host cable, they are usually named as USB host or USB OTG cables. There are also some cheaper cables from Nokia, I believe it's the CA-157 model.

With these cables you can usually connect a 3G Dongle (I think Archos 3G Stick is supported on all Arnova G3 tablets, you can also check here for a test on an Arnova 8 G2), USB keyboard or mouse and some hardisks or USB sticks for storage (not all model work).

Cheers.

You need a Micro USB OTG Host cable. I got ones from amazon awhile ago that work fine. Just ordered some more from newegg because it is easy to lose cables like these. :-/

 

On my 7 G3 I've used flash drives and a wireless keyboard/mouse combo. On my Archos 8 G9 I've also used a 2TB external hard drive. So I know they work.
