Default Micro USB OTG adapter and USB accessories!! Mouse. keyboard. USB flash drives.

Hey first time starting a topic I hope I'm not doing anything wrong.

Anyway I had bought an OTG micro USB to USB 2.0 adapter for my nexus seven and just tried it on my verizon galaxy note 2 and had success with keyboards. Mice. And an off brand USB memory stick!!!!
Wanted to spread the word this is definitely useful for me.



Plus I found my adapter for 2$ on Amazon. It took a long time to arrive from China but works.

I too ordered mine from Amazon.com, took a while to get here. Think I paid about $2. It's really cool to have, I honestly don't even use it just wanted to have it on hand. I do bring it with me to class in case someone has a flash drive and I need a quick file from them.

Anyone having luck with USB PlayStation 3 controller? I can only get it to work with Bluetooth and "six axis controller" app.

Or is a ps3 controller always running Bluetooth?

I think it only runs Bluetooth. AFAIK, the cable is only for power and pairing.

Not true. It indeed works for play as well. People over in the Asus tf201 forum have been using them for play for almost a couple years now.

I've been using a ps3 controller, to get it to connect to bluetooth I still had to connect it via usb. After usb bluetooth worked fine. This is with the sixaxis app
