Default Questions using an OTG Adapter/connecting issues

I don't have this phone yet but a question for those that do. if using a OTG adapter with a thumb drive attached is there a way to save the file from the drive to the phone or do you have to just keep it attached the whole time. Considering this as an alternative to hold HD movies on a drive and putting on the phone when needed. Thanks

I don't have an answer on that, but thought I should mention that I've been messing with an otg cable with my one x and it won't work if I format the pen drive in ntfs or exfat, has to be just fat system.
Reason I thought you may want to know that is if you're thinking of getting a big drive for big movie files...I just got a 64gb and it won't format as just fat, only gives me the option of exfat and ntfs and also, the biggest file size you can transfer onto fat is 4gb

Good to know, thank you. I have a 64gb card , maybe I can format that to fat and use it in a card reader attached to the cable. I will look into that option before purchasing a thumb drive. This phone not having a sd card is one of the things keeping me from jumping on this phone. 32gb may be more then enough for some, but it probably wont be for me with my music and movies.

I have a Lexar USB 3.0 64 gig drive that works fine.
I don't remember doing anything to it, just loaded a bunch of videos and music and it plays on the phone just fine.

Can you save them to the phone from the drive?

i currently have an OTG adapter and i have successfully attached my 64gb sandisk to transfer files back and forth with no issues on the ONE. This phone supports OTG so you can also connect mice, keyboards to the phone as well.

Cool, as I say, I was speaking of my experiance with a 1X, so hopefully theres something in the One that makes it ok, as my 64 GB pen is a Lexor too...good to know that it probably wont be a wasted purchase after all :-)

If anyone is interested, there's this project on Kickstarter, which looks like a pretty neat potential product that's reached its original goal many times over.

I believe it's meant to work on the One.

That's been posted in the accessories thread but it should be mentioned here as well.

I've put a bid in weeks ago before I even received the one and it has been confirmed to work with the One.

Default Using Nikon with USB OTG adapter

I am using an HTC one Android v.4.2.2 and trying to tether a Nikon D90 to use with DSLR Dashboard. I can use a mouse and connect a USB thumb drive via USB/OTG adaptor but when I connect the D90 get a "USB device not supported" message. I read that I may need to install install an 'alternative Android ROM (firmware) without USB limitations'. Not sure of that. Anyone having any expperience with tethering a Nikon camera with the HTC one or any ideas would be appreciated.

always a 3rd party rom will give you more control than stock.

what options do you have on your camera in terms of storage? MASS storage? LUN?

what adapter are you using?

I have a sony a99 and ill connect it up to the phone and report back...

I see the dev has an amazing support forum. have you contacted the dev about his app and if the htc is compatible?

Default Usb otg

I have a HTC One which is running Android 4.2 Jelly Bean. I was recently made aware of the USB OTG feature on Android phones and I was pleasantly surprised ! After purchasing a cable for a 1.25, I connected my USB flash drive and it worked like a charm !
I was wondering what other uses are their for USB OTG on Android phones or even the HTC One specifically ?! Thanks and Ideally I'd prefer a list but I wont complain !

Thanks !
