    Welcome to Android Central! To connect external storage, you would need an OTG (On-The-Go) cable, and the device would have to support OTG technology. Even then, OTG cables are mostly for connecting with USB flash drives. It might be tricky to use an HDD, although I have read where people have been successful--as long as the HDD was formatted in FAT32, not NTFS.
