I bought a new OTG cable for my Nexus (I am using Euroskank's AOKP ROM). When I plug in the cable with a thumb drive attached I see a message recognizing the external USB drive in the notification area. When unplug it I see a similar notification telling me it's unplugged. However, when it's plugged in I can't figure out how to see what's on the thumb drive. I go into file manager and don't see it show up there at all. What's the trick to exploring the information on the thumb drive?

I use Eurostanks CM10 so you may be little different. Since it is recoginizing the drive when you insert and pull it, I don't think you need stickmount. On my GN, when I plug in my drive, it tells me preparing USB Storage. My onboard storage is located at /root/sdcard or /root/storage/sdcard0. my usb storage is located at /root/usbdisk or /root/storage/usbdisk


goodluck
