I can't seem to find any info on this anywhere. I have a micro USB adapter for my nexus 7, but when I attach a flash drive to it, nothing happens - no notification pops up or anything, and I can't find the folder anywhere with the files from the flash drive. I have File Manager HD installed, but I've searched it thoroughly and can't find any evidence of my flash drive even being connected.

Anyone know what I'm doing wrong? Can I not use a flash drive with this tablet??

No. Having a tablet's new to me, so I still have a lot to learn. So I have to either root it or install a stickmount app then, is that right? The second would be easier wouldn't it? Sorry, I know virtually nothing!

Download "Nexus Media Importer" from the play store. $4.00, install it and you will be all set. Works excellent and NO ROOT NEEDED!
