I ordered this one from amazon. It took about 7 or 10 days. I can say it is one of the cheapest out there, but unfortunately I cannot say if it works!! I am still waiting for my Nexus 7 and my Huawei does not accept OTG.

I think I'll get one of these, and a 32gb card.

Don't like the cables, a little adapter would be ok though i.e.

i have a cable for use with my GNex, it came from ebay - it's actually better than a short adapter because it makes it harder to knock the memory stick around in the socket. you can get right angle ones which would be even less obtrusive in landscape .....


Also, can one of you try something for me if you get chance please: I've connected my Gnex to the wifes Sony Arc S before using the OTG cable plugged into the normal charging cable. The result was that the device at the "host" end had access to the card mount folder in the device at the "slave" end (the host device even charges the other one, because it thinks its powering a usb stick, lol). I'd very much like to know what happens when you do this with an android phone and a Nexus7 ;)

Just bought a little cable off of eBay. Just found StickMount this morning, so I'm anxious to give it a try.

::fist bump:: for the tip.

Here's a good cable from Amazon (if you're on the US). http://www.amazon.co...dp/B005GGBYJ4/.

Best of luck to you!

Just did, its an odd comment though, as it says Xoom works which only ever had 3.x and above on it.

Just a quick question, if I get a usb hub will it have to be powered externally or will a bus powered one be sufficient?

Connecting mouse, keyboard and flash drive, ended up buying a basic 4 port hub from currys for £3.99 no external power and it seems to work fine.

Let us know how it effects battery life!

I've had a portable hard drive working with my USB charger powering the drive
