So when I connect the otg cable and my pendrive, in the notification bar the external storage notification comes, but when I click on that it says empty disc or unsupported content. But I have still checked with just one video file and its still not opening. nor es file explorer can detect my pendrive. And even after I remove the pendrive the notification is still there and it doesn't go until I reboot my phone. Please help.

What format is the pendrive? I'm don't think the Moto G supports anything other than FAT32.

When I plug in my USBkey with an OTG cable nothing happen on my Moto G, no notification at all, nothing more in storage

This was working great on my Ascend P6 and on my LG GPAD8.3


I'm on stock GPE firmware, any help ? I don't want to use third party apps, just want the stock otg support

What FS does your flashdrive has?As you've been told above, make sure it's in FAT32 and not NTFS, exFAT or something else.

All Moto G's have OTG support, not all have OTG USB storage support....

GPE Moto G - Don't know - possibly not as Nexus devices don't without 3rd party app (Nexus Media Importer)

Single Sim Moto G variants (maybe not all) - on original Jelly Bean Roms yes, the initial OTA to KitKat removed support without third party app, recent OTA to 176.44.1 (174.44.1 for US models) added it back again.

Dual Sim Moto G variants (maybe not all) - as far as I can tell from forum posts have always had OTG USB support.
