galaxy 10.1 usb adapter.
So I got my new galaxy 10.1 usb adapter. I was eager to try it and plugged in some usb drives, and multi memory card reader. I was hoping that memory card reader will see some of my sd cards. This could be awesome since I can carry movies/music/data/etc.
After trying some devices, Iím really, really, really, really disappointed. I'm hoping that I got a defective product and others had better luck.
I have tried 6 different usb drives. The size ranges from 512m to 12g. Out of 6 drives, only 4 of them were able to read . It failed to read/mount the 12g usb drive. I was very disappointed by this. My computer was able to read all of them. Some of the brands included lexar, data traveler, no game brand, Kingston, and pny. The no name brand works really well.
Since usb drive test was somewhat disappointing, I tried the memory card reader. I plugged the usb cable to usb adapter, and plugged in the memory card reader. It FAILED to read all my sd cards. I only tried 4, but they all failed. The brands included scandisk, pny, transcend, and Kingston. By the way, the memory card reader works on my computer, and it reads all the sd cards.
Finally, I tried couple of usb game controller, one no name brand, and other ps3. It seems to recognize that itís an usb device, but thatís as far as I got. I thought maybe I need some software from the market to make those work, however, I did not find anything. I tried some emulators, and few games, but it did not work. I did read that galaxy tab supports gaming controller. Well, there goes that theory.
Maybe Iím not doing things correctly, or this usb adapter does not support everything that I wanted. (usb drive , memory card reader , and game controller . I didnít even try keyboard or mouse. At this point, I donít even care)
I welcome being schooled, if someone can help me make this work.
Is anyone else having issues? Or is it just me? If you have the usb adapter, please chime in. Iím curious, what works and what doesnít.
