Use a otg microusb to usb canble to connect your hard drive - i was able to connect a 2 terabyte seagate drive this way

Doing this i can transfer files...but haven t been able to play files directly off the hard drive for some reason so i have to copy to the phone and then play

Copying is very fast on note 5 so not a big deal but if someone knows a way of how to play the file directly off the hard drive let new know

I set up a wireless hard drive companion (RavPower) that is hooked to a 2TB HDD.
I can dump to/from with my Note 5 (using FH+ app) and all other non-iOS devices.
Pretty cool :D
