I was trying to connect my 1TB external hard drive to my Z Ultra using the USB OTG, but I keep getting this message:
"USB storage empty or file system not supported"

Any way I could connect it without rooting the phone?

If it's impossible then please give me a link of the fastest way to root my phone (v 4.3 build number 14.2.A.1.136)


Thanks

There might be others if this doesnt work or you need to be rooted for most of the apps to work.
As far as I know Xperia Z ultra supports Usb OTG out of the box
