Default How to have working USB OTG on Android 4.4.2 KitKat

I have Samsung Galaxy Note 3, SM-N9005 Snapdragon version.
I bought USB OTG cable from, with microUSB 3.0 for S5/Note 3.
When I connect mouse or keyboard, it works.
But when I connect USB flash drive, or external HDD it mounts, but after 3-5 seconds it un-mount.
Is there any way, fix or some xposed module to have it working?
I have rooted my phone and I am running on custom ROM (CRASH ROM v16), based on stock XXUGNG1 PDA, Ultimate Kernel v55.
Thank you for your help.
Samsung Galaxy Note 3 32GB White LTE SM-N9005 + 64GB microSDXC, KNOX 0x1, CSC ORX
ROM: CRASH ROM V17 XXUGNH1 with updated Qualcomm Adreno 330 drivers
KERNEL: Ultimate Kernel v.66 oc CPU (performance) to 3,1GHz x4
RECOVERY: Team Win Recovery Project /TWRP/ v2.8.0.0

It won't mount NTFS drives. Try a usb drive on fat32. It will work.

I faced the same problem when I bought my Otg cable. Here's what I did maybe it helps.

I copied all my flash memory and external hard drives content on my laptop then I formatted them in exFat and it was immediately recognized by the stock rom android 4.4.2 N90005.
