I was talking about ADB drivers. I got the generic Google ones working, but I was hoping Toshiba was going to release ones for the Thrive.
As for what formats the Thrive will read. Right now it is Fat32 or exFat.

Where did you find the generic Google drivers? I plugged my Thrive into a WinXP machine and it fails to find any drivers.
One thing I was surprised, and saddened, to discover was that I couldn't plug in my 16 GIGABYTE device and not be able to access the files on it when connected to a desktop machine.

Here is how to get mtp driver for the thrive to install. You have to install the android sdk and get the google usb v4 driver. then add these lines to the android_winusb.inf file located in the directory where you installed the sdk under
Add these lines under [Google.NTx86] or [Google.NTamd64] depending on whether you are using 32 bit or 64 bit Windows. If unsure, it is safe to add these under both these sections.
%SingleAdbInterface% = USB_Install, USB\VID_0930&PID_7000
%CompositeAdbInterface% = USB_Install, USB\VID_0930&PID_7100&MI_01
echo 0x930 >> "%USERPROFILE%\.android\adb_usb.ini"
this link helped but for the thrive the vendor id was wrong.
another note. If you have a usb_driver directory under your sdk install directory ignore it. its not the correct one. the correct one will be under extras/google.

Please read my response in your thread on MTP drivers. MTP drivers are not the same as the ADB drivers. MTP is Media Transfer Protocal and is what Toshiba used for the Thrive to talk to a Windows PC so you can access the files on the Thrive via the Windows File Explorer. ADB is Android Device Bridge and is used for development.
