It should. The XO, which is still a standard Linux system at heart, can read Ext2/3 and Fat32 to be sure. The jumpdrives that plugin and work on a mac and PC (formatted in the old Window's filesystem, fat32), will also work on the XO. Same should go for external harddrives over usb. Hope it works out. Let us know.

I tried this also. It works, and it shows up as an icon on the "journal" activity, however, can only seem to access top level directory, unless you drop down to "Terminal" activity to access subdiretories.
