    Does anyone have a recommendation for an OTG Cable for the Nexus 10?

    Is the Nexus 10 cable or powering a 250gb SSD Drive in an enclosure or just a USB Stick?

    I saw recently this OTB/USB Hub that came out that supported 4 devices,,,

    I bought two different ones of Amazon and they were both under $5.00. Both work just fine for memory cards. I have not tried a HD.

    I say a similar one and someone said the design blocks the headphone jack. Any comments?

    I bought this one, though it is out of stock now. Straight plug so no potential interference with USB port.

    I don't think the Nexus 10 can power a hard drive.
    Why would it have to if it's an external HD with its own power supply?

    He could be talking about one of the smaller ones that doesn't have it's own power supply.

    Sadly it does kind of cover over the headphone jack. If you have a small enough connector on your headphones then you can use both.

    I'm not sure I've ever seen those in an external, but then again, I've never looked for one. In any event, I've hooked up an old (powered) external HD to the N10 with the OTG cable, and it works fine. Although I prefer to use the Plex app and just stream from my PC.

    I only need one external hard drive and it's one of the big ones that is powered by a wall outlet so I haven't been able to try it.

    I did get an OTG cable that has a 90-degree bend downward, thus blocking access to the headphone jack. I then got another one that was straight out, no access problem. I've heard there's one that has an upward bend. As far as powering a HDD, I've got a 500 GB Passport, about the physical size of the Galaxy Note 2 phone. This hard drive relies on USB power (it does not have its own power cable), and the Nexus 10 does not provide enough power for it. Any HDD that you connect to the Nexus 10 will need its own power supply. For portable, external storage, I use a bunch of 64 GB flash drives with the Nexus 10.
