    Just tried a OTG cable and a card reader and using Nexus media importer. It will not read from the card reader. The reader works fine in my desktop. If I insert a flash drive into the OTG cable, that works perfectly. Is there a certain brand of card reader that I need?

    This is really strange. The Nexus does not recognize the card reader when it is plugged in. Even turning it off and back on does not help. However, when after a minute, the tablet enters sleep mode with the reader still plugged in, when starting the tablet again the card reader is recognized and works perfectly. Any settings I should look at?

    Nope. I'm rooted, using stickmount. No problems.

    Nexus Media importer does its own thing when recognising USB devices, it gets no help from the system.

    As a result I'm not surprised that there will be some devices out there that have been missed by the small app developer but that are recognised by major OS developers, although I haven't (yet) personally come across any; it reads everything I've tried to use it with.

    Perhaps the app developer could help if you contact him directly.
