Help Anyone know the OTG connected flash drive max capacity for the S8+?


My fully functional 512gb flash drive is completely invisibly to my S8+. Either I keep reformatting the drive over and over with different file systems and sizes to figure it out or, hopefully, find someone who already knows...

The drive I have is like this

Android only supports FAT32 and exFAT for external USB media so the issue doesn't sound like it necessarily has anything to do with that Sandisk flash drive itself but there's a good chance whatever OTG adapter is the actual problem. If that is the case, it makes no difference what USB storage media you try, if the OTG adapter/cable isn't compatible with your S8, nothing can be detected and mounted.
Do other USB devices connect to your S8 through this OTG adapter/cable and it's just this Sandisk drive that's a problem? That would indicate the problem is with the Sandisk drive and your phone. If you cannot get anything to connect to your S8, using that OTG adapter/cable, that would indicate that it is the problem.
What OTG cable/adapter do you have?
