Does the N5 require some kind of special host cable to be able to read an external micro SD card via a card reader? Can't seem to get mine to read or mount an external card at all? (32 GB model)

Sorry, wasn't aware that this kind of question wasn't appropriate for "General"... If one of the mods could re-locate the thread to Q&A it would be appreciated...

Not using a custom rom or kernel just yet... Just a bog standard Nexus 5 right now. Why doesn't it just mount itself with the stock kernel/rom? All the tablets I have used with Android v4.x.x already do?

Take a look at this thread as it covers a super compact micoSDcard reader and the various mounting software you will need to access the storage.

I did my own review of the Meenova OTG micoSDcard reader within the thread including pictures with my N5.
