Is it possible for my i9100 to read an 2tb external hd (fat32)? It has an external power source but when I tried connecting it, my phone shuts down.

it is possible yes but conditions needed your phone battery is at 100 %
also you need to format the hdd in ntfs format for the phone to read and write as the fat32 is slower and uses more of ram and given that gt--i9100 lacks that kind of ram so NTFS is the answer
i tried a 2tb hdd via otg cable exceptions are samsung m3 2tb hdd was working great on the sgs2 but the seagate drive didn't seem to respond at all !

try it out and hit thanks if i helped
