Been meaning to try it. I have plugged a flash drive and a CF reader in with no issues. The device can't seem to read NTFS though. Soon I will be trying a GPT partitioned drive formatted as exFAT and FAT32. I haven't had my OTG cable long so I haven't had allot of time to experiment. Wanted to plug into my USB hub and see how many drives I can mount as well.

It will connect to an external hd so long as its formatted to fat32. You will also need to get the correct cable...Micro USB to USB OTG Adapter Cable. I bought mine from Amazon for $3.
