iPhone 3GS (Probably also 1G/3G) ipheth standard-A USB 2.0 500mA USB A Yes, works. Yes, works. Requires a good bit of dependencies to get working. Tested with Debian from SD, but should work in Angstrom with some work. The ipheth wwan0 device only provides a connection over the 3G modem, even if you're connected to a wifi network. I used the iproxy and SSH tunneling method with proxychains to get to the wifi network.
HTC Desire not required standard-A USB 2.0 500mA USB A Yes, works. Yes, works. Requires internet connection sharing to be enabled from the phone.

USB WiFi adapters

The Pandora stock kernel doesn't seem to come with any wireless driver support outside of the internal wifi chip. The only way you'll get wireless working is to build your own kernel with it included or try compat-wireless.

Device Driver Connector Supported standard Current draw Suggested connection to Pandora Tested in Linux Tested on Pandora Additional comments
Belkin N1 Wireless USB Adapter (F5D8051) ("Ver. 2053") (MARVELL v1021) N/A Standard-A USB 2.0 Not connecting it at all. Reported to work with ndiswrapper. No native driver support and ndiswrapper obviously won't work. There's a previous revision of this dongle which is supposed to have a Ralink chip, but they revised it and put a different chip inside.
Cisco/Linksys AE1000 High Performance Wireless-N USB Adapter rt3572sta (RT3572USB) Standard-A USB 2.0 USB A Reportedly works. Works with a modified driver. (Compiled module for pandora:pandora forum) Download the driver from ralink's driver site, edit ./common/rtusb_dev_id.c, before "#endif // RT2870" add "{USB_DEVICE(0x13B1,0x002F)},", compile. NOTE: Broke after three days!

External Hard Disk Drives

Device Driver Connector Supported standard Current draw Suggested connection to Pandora Works Additional comments
LaCie Rikiki 250GB USB 2.0 2.5" Hard Drive Not required standard-A USB 2.0 Unknown standard-A port via powered High Speed Hub Not working on Pandora This drive does not work on a Pandora. Not only does it fail to spin up, but it causes the Pandora's screen to pulsate wildly, much like an old CRT would if you placed a speaker or a magnet near to it. I have not yet tested this with a powered hub.
Verbatim 250GB Model #47580 Hard Drive Not required direct USB 2.0 Unknown direct Works on Pandora Tested by almatuk. "worked an absolute treat when plugged into the Pandora. Watched videos directly from it at full speed, no need for powered USB hub. Had issues playing roms directly off it however as it was formatted NTFS. I'm sure if I formatted to FAT32 these would disappear."
Western Digital 160GB Elements External USB 2.0 2.5" Hard Drive Not required standard-A USB 2.0 Unknown standard-A port via powered High Speed Hub Works on Pandora This drive works just fine with the Pandora.
Western Digital 250GB Elements Portable USB 2.0 2.5" Hard Drive Not required standard-A USB 2.0 Unknown Direct or standard-A port via High Speed Hub Works on Pandora Works perfectly fine with Pandora.
Western Digital 250GB My Passport Essential USB 2.0 2.5" Hard Drive Not required direct? USB 2.0 Unknown direct? Maybe Tested by TheDarkSpectrum48K. "Works perfectly!", but the 2nd time it didn't work.
Western Digital 400GB My Passport Essential USB 2.0 2.5" HDD model WDME4000TE Not required standard-A USB 2.0 Unknown Direct Works on Pandora Tested by Peca. "Works perfectly!"
Western Digital 1TB My Passport Essential SE External USB 2.0 2.5" Hard Drive Not required standard-A USB 2.0 Unknown Direct or through powered High Speed Hub Works on Pandora Tested by Mycohl This drive works without problems. Externally powered hub recommended to conserve battery power.
Seagate Seagate® Expansion™ External Drives Not required standard-A USB 2.0 Unknown Direct Not working on Pandora Tested by Hitnrun. "Isn't even detected in lsusb (drive powered by external power source)"
Freecom 250GB 2.5" portable Not Required standard-A USB 2.0 Unknown Direct Works on Pandora Just works perfectly when plugged into the Pandora. Inside it's a Samsung Model HM251JX so I guess anything based on that will also work OK.
Western Digital Elements 2TB 3.5" Hard Drive Model:WDBAAU0020HBK Not Required standard-A USB 2.0 Unknown Direct Works on Pandora Tested by kilowatt. No problems, works fine with Pandora.
