I could get further with it.
But it did recognize it as a drive. I don't know why it couldn't see anything on it though.

Im gonna see if I can get a 64gb thumbdrive and try that. I know the 32gb works.
My 32 gb worked fine, it's just not useful for the reason I bought the adapter. I really wanted stream, via the tablet, off my passport. Oh well. Stick it in a drawer & sell it with the tablet when the time comes.

First of all android devices dont support NTFS formated Drives out of the box.
Second , most external usb hard drives require more than 500 milliamps to 1amp in order to work.

Solutions,
Get ntfs support from the play store.
Use external power supply for hard-drives.

I've tested a WD MyBook 2TB external on my tab and it works fine. My hard drive was formatted as ext4 from my linux box and mounted up just fine. Data transfers as fast as you can write it.

External power is a must.

How long do you think that battery can spin a drive?

Doing cat /proc/filesystems tells me I have NTFS as default on my GT-5210

OT
It would be great with some sort of expectation, what purpose did you buy this usb cable for?

For the power supply: maybe an external powered USB hub? It won't be portable but it might work.
