Question [Q] USB OTG 8Gb & 16Gb

Hi guys,

I've searched and cannot find anything,

I have recently become the owner of the LG G2 (Great machine) And I purchased an external USB OTG device that allows
me to plug in external USB drives.

The 8Gb that came with it works fine (Small thumb-drive style)

The 16Gb (same small style, Kingston DT Micro).

The 16Gb Kingston reads fine in PC but does nothing in the OTG.

Both are formatted to FAT32....

Have I done something stupid or missed something obvious.

any help would be most appreciated.

Regards,

JW

I have the 16GB type exactly this one, works fine. No problems whatsoever. Well its incredibly slow in this age... I like my meenova with 32GB SD better .
Either you have done something wrong in the FS. Try again to format it to FAT32 then. Not sure what stock supports, try also exFAT or NTFS. Also try to jiggle it? More times inside outside, inside outside.
Or the drive is bugged. Does it work normally everywhere? Try to copy data on it.

EDIT: Also remembered I do have 2 OTG cables, and with one of those, the drive needed some persuasion.

^ don't have that phone anymore, too lazy to change the picture...

LG G2
Stock 4.2.2 with G2 Xposed variant 0
echo 0 > /sys/class/leds/button-backlight/brightness
chmod 444 /sys/class/leds/button-backlight/brightness
echo "who cares, always changes with the kernel..." > /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu0/cpufreq/UV_mV_table


Quadrant score never matters!

Thanks Pagot.

The 16Gb USB works in everything *except* the G2.

Other 16Gb larger usb drives work in the G2.

So I have no idea!!!!

I've formatted the original 16Gb card to everything and it's mum and nothing. Oh well - I'll just get another one as I'm out of ideas.

Thanks for your help
