Writing to USB...
« on: March 16, 2013, 03:50:55 PM »
I'm rooted and stock; I'm able to read my USB in Astro and play videos from it without a problem. However, I couldn't create a new folder on the USB or write a test file from Kingsoft Office. I'm missing something, but I'm stuck on how to get write access.

Do I have to set permissions somewhere?

You will need Stickmount from Google Play Store to write to the usb device by the OTG cable.

I'm using Stickmount, it shows it has superuser access.

I just looked around in Root Explorer; storage/sdcard0 was read-only. I set it to read/write access. Now I can save a document from Kingsoft to the device, then copy/paste to the USB. Doesn't seem to want to write from Kingsoft directly to the USB.

Its a workaround, but I can live with it...

Dustin the developer of Nexus Media Importer is going to be releasing the N5 version soon. It will provide the ability to write to FaT. I am waiting for him to send me a beta version to test.
