Help connecting portable external hard drive to my Tablet Z
Hi all, I have purchased a 1TB harddrive and an otg cable. I can connect the harddrive with the otg cable into my Galaxy S4 phone and it can read the harddrive flawlessly.
However, when I attempt to connect it to my tablet Z, the hard drive makes clicking sound, sounding like a motor failing to run. And as expected, the tablet z cant detect it.
So I would like to know if the tablet z is not strong enough to power the harddrive and any solutions to work around this problem. Thanks!
My galaxy S4 is rooted, my tablet z is not, if that has to do with helps.
The harddrive is also portable.
