I realize there is another thread about an OTG cable that does work with the Nexus 7, but after 3 or 4 posts, it has digressed into discussing what to plug into the OTG and what to use instead of OTG.

As I struggled to find any confirmation of a device I could buy in the UK that DID work with the Nexus 7, I thought I'd make this thread. At the same time, I also bought a USB OTG adapter that does NOT work with the Nexus 7, so thought I'd let you know of that one too. I would like to request that people use this thread to show USB OTG's that they have confirmed as working with the Nexus 7 and also those that do not work.

For those OTGs that are working, please indicate what tests you have done as well as where you purchased it (links please). Please try to refrain from discussing / recommending devices to plug into the USB OTG unless it's to say you have confirmed it as working with the USG OTG and Nexus 7.

DOES work with Nexus 7 -

I can confirm that the following work on the Nexus 7 with this Adapter -

- USB Keyboard plugged into Adapter
- USB mouse plugged into Adapter
- USB mouse and USB keyboard plugged into (self powered) USB HUB, and HUB plugged into adapter
- USB Memory Stick (pendrive as some call them) as long as the Nexus 7 and Google Nexus are ROOTED and have a utility called StickMount installed (from Google Play Store)
- USB Dongle for Wireless Keyboard (with built in trackball), plugged into Adapter. Nexus 7 picks up both mouse and keyboard

I have confirmed that my wireless keyboard (with trackball) works great with this USB OTG Adapter

Does NOT work With Nexus 7 -

Motorola Camera Connection Kit cable. High quality, heavy duty, built to exacting specifications of the usb standards.

Sadly, runs about $19.xx and change.

If I didn't already have this one, I too would have randomly chosen one of the chinese knockoff cables that are only $2.xx.

Ordered two different USB-OTG cables from Amazon. Only the second one, SANOXY USB 2.0 Female to Micro USB Male OTG, has come in. Took 12 days from shipping confirmation email to end user delivery.

SANOXY Micro USB Host Mode OTG Cable Flash Drive SD T-Flash Card Adapter FOR Samsung GT-i9100 i9100 Galaxy S II 2 GT-N7000 Galaxy Note
SANOXY USB 2.0 Female to Micro USB Male OTG(On-The-Go) Cable Adapter for Samsung Galaxy s2 i9100

The SANOXY USB 2.0 Female to Micro USB Male OTG cable works fine. I've detailed my experiences in the External Storage Device Compatibility Review thread in this forum.

As I've mentioned in several other USB-OTG threads. The SANOXY USB 2.0 Female to Micro USB Male OTG cable I received is shorter than the one pictured at Amazon. See attached.

Yes there is. There are several threads in this forum as well as the Q/A and General forums related to USB-OTG cables,and what works and what doesn't with them. Just as there are multiple threads about the same case (Blurex for example) running in this forum. Just as there are several threads ongoing about POGO pins and the Dock accessory.

Give it a few days and someone else will start a new thread or two asking the same questions...

This one works... http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...ls_o03_s00_i00

But the micro USB connection is extremely loose and flimsy on my Droid 4, and on my Nexus 7.
