Default Any helpful apps for running USB OTG

Hi,

I am currently using the USB stick plugin for Total Commander to run my OTG drives, but the software says it will expire on the 31 Dec as it is a trial version.. The paid version dosent seem to work for another friend on a Nexus 5.

Can a good Samaritan please recomend a good software for an UNROOTED nexus 5 to read usb OTG drives ??

What format?

"Support:

Technical Notes:
-DOES NOT REQUIRE ROOT! Rooting may void your device's warranty.
-The USB drive/flash memory card must be formatted as FAT16, FAT32 or NTFS (no exFAT or extN support). FAT & NTFS are the most common formats for flash cards and USB Drives.
