    I just got the new Nexus and intended to use a OTG cable and SD card reader. I have read that there is a problem with 4.3 not being able to read files using a OTG cable and reader. This would be using Nexus Media Importer. Has anyone run into a problem with OTG?

    I have the 2013 version, there is an issue with using the otg cable and nexus media importer acknowledges it and has a workaround on the troubleshooting page here.

    I've experienced it myself and they say it's a 50/50 chance of occurrence on reboot so I just reboot it until it works for now they find a permanent fix.

    Hi:

    I'm sorry you're having problems with Nexus Media Importer. I have both the 2012 N7 and the 2013 N7 and have had zero problems using sd card adapters or flash drives. The same goes with many of my friends with 2012 Nexus 7. What are your problems?

    Tom

    Basically it doesn't read the usb drive and gives me a protected device error, I just reboot and there's a 50/50 chance it'll work. It's documented on the Nexus Media Importer support page as an issue and they've asked people who have had the issue to submit an error report to google.
