USB on Android

I have an Android tablet with USB ports. When I plugin a MintChip with the USB adapter, it is recognized as external storage, but the MintChipSample app does not recognize it as a usable MintChip.
Is general limitation with android, or with the MintChip libraries? Can it be fixed by making the libs search for usb-mounted devices same way as the Windows sample?

    To answer my own question: MintChips can work on Android when connected using the USB microSD adapter. You have to "trick" the libs into looking for the MintChip on the usb-storage instead of the sdcard location.

    Thank-you very much! I can confirm that specifying the usb-storage mount point (/mnt/sda1 in my case) works perfectly.
