    Default How to expand the space on your HTC One X!

    Memory running low? I know mine was. So I decided to expand my storage. How? It doesn't have an sd card. I know. That sucks.

    But this is how I did it.


    You will need:




    A USB OTG cable. This is the one I got. I bought it from the vendor "Yoga Style." I got the cable quick from them with no hassles.USB OTG Cable.



    A USB Drive.



    A phone.



    Step 1. Download ES File Explorer from the play store. If you don't have it yet, you're missing out on the best file explorer out there. Here is a link: ES File Explorer



    Step 2. Connect the cable.



    Step 3. Connect the USB drive.



    This should come up.




    Step 4. Click where it says sdcard on the top.



    A menu should come down.



    Just select usbdisk.

    Step 5. View the content inside your USB drive.



    Congratulations! You expanded the storage of you phone.

    This also works with 2GB,4GB, 6GB, 8GB, 16GB, 32GB, 64GB, and 128GB USB drives. It also works with external hard drives (western digital, seagate, hitachi, toshiba), but it may need an external power source.

    By using this method, can I play music and movies that i store on the memory stick or is just simply to view the files?

    Certainly looks like the only way to expand the storage. Thanks for this tutorial.

    Yep! You can put videos on the external storage and play with a player such as MX Player! It plays almost every format!

    OTG cables are awesome. Also very cheap. I got mine for under $5. Then I bought a USB controller for about the same price to play an SNES mario kart rom (waiting for that in the mail).

    But I already opened pictures, video and other files off USB. Works great.
