Can the Kobo function as a UBS mass storage device?

A quick question about USB support on the Kobo. Say I'm on holiday with desktop internet access (no WiFi). If I download an ebook from a store (Kobobooks or other), can I access the Kobo reader as a USB mass storage device? Or do I always need a desktop application that supports the reader to transfer the file?

Thanks

If the book has the standard Kobobooks DRM, then you'll need the app to get it incorporated into the database on the reader (or something like ADE).

If it's just an ePub, then you can just copy it onto the reader and it will find it and add it to your library automatically.

Well, yes. You can.
Be aware that device wants you to mount it as a fat partition.
Regarding operating system you use, use "mount" command
for unices or let it do automatic mount for <insert_pet_name>.
Every decent operating system ask you do unmount it proper-
ly. "Umount" for unices and "safely remove hardware" for the
<rest>.
The question you ask seems like the most natural way to put
book on the reader. Or not?
