    Hello, i'd like to formally introduce myself my name is Jake. Just recently ive picked up on OTG or USB Hosting. I bought myself a OTG cable to test it out, prior to my purchase I looked up videos on if my device is supported with the OTG function I saw over 10-20 videos showing that they had got it to work easily.

    My problem is confusing but you may know the answer. So i downloaded over 5 apps so 'Check' my usb host support all of which have said I have a supported device. The problem is that they say its supported but when I go to plug in my OTG nothing happens at all. At this point ive spent hours upon hours looking for solutions and I think this might be my last hope.

    Okay so to recap, these applications that check if your device is OTG compatible are saying that my device is supported but the devices aren't being detected.

    I would appreciate any response and any insight if you are confused at my point or question or the issue im encountering drop a answer with your solution and ill respond with more clarity.

    Thank you,
    Regards
    Jake Cornelius

    Are you trying to see files on an sd card or ext HDD? If so what file system is on them? NTFS, FAT32 etc?

    Not sure this has any relevance, but I did a search and located another forum which has some suggestions to the same type of issue your encountering:

    I am trying to use the OTG for a keyboard and/or mice. I have no intention of using a flash drive.
