    Default Nexus 7: Wireless USB Mouse not working with OTG Cable

    I just opened my OTG cable and tried connecting a Logitech MX Darkfield mouse to the tablet and it does not recognize it at all. I have also tried my brother's Logitech M560 and still no difference but my wired Logitech G400 works. I was wondering what was your experience with connecting a wireless USB mouse to the tablet through an OTG cable and if you had any successful connections.

    I'm not positive, but I don't think it's possible via OTG. The Nexus 7 doesn't really support OTG. The Nexus Media Importer App is the one and only thing that can recognize an OTG device, but even then, it's storage devices ONLY (ie: flash drives)

    Hello,
    I have have the same situation..I have two Logitech USB mice.One works and the other does not. I have not tried it with Kit Kat though but I suspect the same issue.
    Goodluck

    Long ago, I had a time when a wireless mouse didn't work on Windows until the proper driver was installed, And Windows has built in drivers for a whole pile of devices compared to Android's few. I suspect that you may be dealing with a mouse/receiver that Android doesn't handle.

    Although I can't speak about a specific wireless mouse for use on Android with the OTG cable, I plan on trying my Microsoft blue tooth mouse on mine in the near future.
