Friggin AMAZING !!

Because I'm an amateur and shoot only jpg, I only have about 56GB of photos ... plus about 12GB of music, plus about 1GB of personal data. As part of my backup program, I have a 128GB usb key to which I irregularly copy everything (my regular backups are to 2 external HD's).

I tried plugging that 128GB usb key into this adapter, and suddenly I have my entire laptop data viewable on my phone !!

That is so cool !! The phone file viewer handles everything just like my windows browser. :) :cool:

This opens a lot of possibilities besides just photo viewing.

EDIT: I tried plugging my 500GB Seagate HD, but all I got was flashing light on the HD - no recognition of the drive. It might have been trying to go through the whole drive before recognizing it.

EDIT 2: OK, on further study, this tech is about 1 year old ... I guess I should go back to reading online NerdNotes to keep up with what's going on. Oh well - I finally got it !

Hard drive probably needs more power than your Android/OTG cable can supply.

That's my experience with my Samsung phone and tablets.

I do think some of the phone apps for photo editing have come a long way, if I'd gotten a Samsun Mega I'd even cosider leaving the laptop at home.

I never take my laptop when I travel but my Samsung Note 10.1, along with my USB and SD card adapters.

Another option I haven't tried, but have looked into. Works wirelessly:

Can run a cheap injector cable to fix that:

You use your phone charger to provide extra power into the USB port.
