I tried Paragon NTFS+, which works with my hard drive drive & OTG adapter when using my LG G2, but on my Note it fails to mount. Paragon doesn't give an error message, it just tries to mount for a few seconds then does nothing. I also tried NTFS Mounter, which crashes when trying to mount.
I ended up using Wireless File Transfer Pro to transfer a large file because MTP is broken on my laptop with all devices. I've tried everything under the sun to fix MTP, but it's just broken until I reimage this machine.
FWIW, I'm using CleanROM 1.5.
