OTG Under JB: Expectations?
I bought the twenty-dollar Samsung USB adapter and nothing was happening.
Figured it was DOA, returned it, and bought the Juiced Systems 4-in-one.
First time around, that wasn't happening either.
Read a few threads on the subject in which somebody re-booted with the adapter in place and got it working - at least for USB flash drives.
Now I'm seeing flash drives as they are plugged into the adapter and I've removed/replugged it a few times and it's still working.
But I am not seeing an exFAT-formatted SATA drive in a USB wrapper. I can't swear to it, but it seems to me like I've seen such a drive on my 5" Note.
Have greater minds than mine explored this situation?
Can I count on this thing working from now on? Now about the SATA drive?
