Default connecting external usb drive - view files

Please Login to Remove!

I have a Pretec Mega Reader which incorporates a card reader with a usb connection which fits blackberry. there is also a standard usb which means i can use it to connect balckberry to PC and charge and link to desktop manager.

What i really want to do is view files on the card reader via the blackberry micro usb and transfer them via the blackberry email.

Any suggestions?

The BlackBerry USB port doesn't have any host controllers.

You can't read a flash drive plugged into that port.

Thanks for the advice. I guess i will have to find a workaround that is less elegant.
