Is there a serious disadvantage to limiting the KFHD's internal storage to 32 GB, since you can store things on an external drive?

How many of you have played movies and/or videos (especially HD vids) on your KFHDs, when those movies/vids were stored on external drives, such as thumb drives or external HDs?

I ask because I've ordered the KF 8.9 in 64 GB 4G configuration. If movies and videos play just as well when they're stored on an external drive, I think I should return my 64 GB KF and order the 2 GB one.

Okay hold up here. I never said you can plug external hard drives or flash drives into the Fire. They are talking about the external WiFi drives. So you will need to get the WiFi drives listed in the posts above to work. You were asking about being able to play movies from them. I don't have a Fire but a different tablet that I can plug things into.

I think you are confused.
You can not connect a flashdrive through the usb port. The Kindles can behave as a USB drive, they cannot host a usb drive.

It is possble to connect to a network drive. or simpler to just rely on the Amazon cloud
