I purchased an OTG adapter from Amazon, and when I connect it to the tablet I get a message on my tablet that reads "USB Connector detected," however, any USB device that I've tried to plug in so far won't be detected by the tablet. I first tried my 32GB flash drive and the moment I connect it the flash drive's indicator light would light up for an instant and then disappear. The next thing I tried was a USB mouse and nothing happened. Then I tried a large external HDD I have (USB powered) and when I plugged it in to the OTG adapter it would actually power the device on, but the tablet wouldn't recognize it. Lastly I tried a USB xbox 360 controller (which is actually the most important thing I want to get working on the tablet, so that I can play emulators) and just like the flash drive, the indicator light on the controller lights up for a split-second and then disappears the moment I plug it in.
Do you know if this is just some kind of a software problem with these new tablets? Are you all able to get your USB devices to work fine out of the box on your 2014 10.1? Or perhaps do you think I have some kind of defected hardware (e.g. the OTG cable or even the tablet itself).
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
