Does the Note 12.2 generate enough power to run self powered mass storage devices? or we have to use powered USB Hub ?

My note pro doesn't run any kind of mass storage devices ( I'm not rooted )
One says external power needed and the other one keep ticking .

my Note 3 run them with no problems.

any one with note pro pls test and advice back.

I tried one on my NotePro but no joy: but, then I can't even get a flash drive to mount. The drive works fine with my older Xoom. With the NotePro it doesn't even power up.

Strange mine recognizes not only external sd card readers but flash drives as well. Maybe it is the uab ptg cable you are using

Did you test mass storage device 400GB & more or just USB flash ?

Sorry I was responding to the guy saying that he couldnt even use flash drives or any sort of mass storage. I havent tried a non powered disk drove though.

Which USB ptg cable do you have? I have a couple of different ones. I managed to get one of them to let me connect my dive computer and download, but not any of the drives.

I have one that converts the USB 3.0 micro B to a standard USB. It seems to be pretty good. It is a solid piece instead of a cable, but it doesn't work with anything, including my dive computer.

I have a cheap one that came with a keyboard case and it works fine. Have you disabled the built in file manager or something
