It still doesn't work for me. I wonder what else I could be doing wrong?

Could you please tell me what and exactly how you are doing so that I may be able to help you out?

Attached is a picture from the thread I mentioned earlier on. I use the 2nd setup. May be this will be of help in case the connections aren't done right. Also, make sure that all connections are made, with the power put on before you connect the entire setup to the USB OTG cable and then to the tablet's port.

Could you share which hub you are using that has a mini USB connector?

Also, I'm trying to connect a 120GB HDD and I guess this might be too big? What is the larger capacity drive you have been able to connect?

Lastly, does a larger drive take longer to connect/display and thus I should wait longer? If so, how long does it usually take?

I have put up a step by step procedure with all hardware I used and how I got it to work at http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...8#post25443308.

hope it solves your problem. If not, I will try to help you out for sure.
