    I have looked at the answers provided on this subject before, but they don't seem to work for me.
    My tablet is a Samsung Galaxy Tab S.
    Here's what I've got: I've got an SD card reader (with SD card inserted) That is connected to a USB converter / cable. (I think some people call this an "On the Go" cable.) That is plugged into my tablet.
    So I think that should work - but my tablet does not recognize the card reader. I search using "My Files", but there is nothing!
    Can someone please tell me what the problem might be?
    Would be much appreciated.
    Thank you,
    Ray

    I'm not on this but just from your description I'm wondering if you've chosen the USB connection to work as a mass storage device?

    When plugged in does your tab even recognize that a USB is connected?

    Do you have a laptop or PC that you could connect both to simultaneously and transfer them direct from one folder to the other?

    It could be your card reader isn't compatible with the tab. There are different protocols for USB connections and card readers so maybe one or the other isn't compatible with the tabs interface.

    I did find a few OTG apps that claim to work with external memory at the Play Store but most had low reviews, what appeared to mostly be for ads and less for not working.

    You may have to select "USB A" or "USB Storage" because there's nothing like "SD card" listed.
