Yes its true. If some usb drive consumes more power it will not work.

thats not the case. It depends on power consumption.. ive been using 8gb pendrives for my XU without problems its just the matter of which brand usb drive ur using try with some other company. Ive tested : Sandisk Cruze 8GB, Strontium Bold 8GB

I am using a 16gb flash drive working fine on my otg cable on Note 3. In order for it to work I formatted it to use FAT32 instead of NTFS. Seems android doesnt like NTFS.

Just keep in mind the limitations of FAT32 you wont be able to copy a single file larger that 4gb or maybe even 2gb onto the drive.

wait up.... there is nothing with the GB's of the pendrive u try with a low power device (all model SanDisk pendrives have no issues with otg and recently Strontium has launched OTG special versions that are fast as well as consume less power)
Mostly the devices with a flashing LED's will not work as they consume more power than the others... but there is little hack to make it work but u need ROOT and Terminal emulator .

plug in the device into the otg cable and then the cable into the phone.
wait till the power consumption error message is displayed.
using a root explorer(e.g. es file explorer) go to the folder 'root>sys>bus>usb>devices>1-1'
open the file 'bConfigurationValue' with a text editor(es text editor in my case). It should be blank. Edit and put the value 1 and save the file.
Your device will now be mounted and the message will be displayed in the statusbar.
try this


but by the way if the pendrive is shown empty then format it to fat32 format and it'll work fine
