    DVD player attached via usb port in docking keyboard

    My first tablet and also my first Android device .. so complete novice.

    I bought an external portable DVD player which I can connect to the keyboard usb port, with the intention of using the tablet to watch DVD's. Was this a mistake?

    Currently, when I plug in the player (with a disc in it) there's no response from the tablet. No icons popping up. No new drive recognised. Nothing in the file management app.

    Am I expecting the impossible from the tablet or am I missing a step? Or could the usb ports be faulty?

    Q: Is it possible to watch DVD's playing on a DVD player attached to the keyboard usb port?

    Thanks.

    I have gotten all sorts of USB stuff to work (thumbdrives, portable HDD's, mice, etc), but I have never tried a portable DVD drive, because I haven't had the need. I surmise it is all about drivers, and my guess is that Android doesn't have them for DVD drives...

    You don't say? Which means the TF is able to power the portable HD via the USB port the way other computers do? I might try that today. This sort of thing (adding large external storage devices) flies in the face of the whole concept of tablets, but still, useful to know.
