Lightbulb HP Touchpad and USB port

Hi all,

I have tried many times to use the mini USB of the touchpad to play media from it but of course it didn't work so I tried different cables/adapters and ways to hook up my usb drives and finally find a way around this problem:

I am running CyanogenMod 11 Kitkat 4.4.4 build and no issues so far, fingers crossed

I can't put links as I am new on site so you can access the video demo on youtube following this JTIOoNIJWi0

Hope this is useful to some of you

No offense, but this problem was solved a long time ago.

Yeah, we've known for years that you need to apply power to use OTG. There was a guide showing how to make your own cord a while ago.
