OTG USB. Reads fine, folder contents shows empty.
« on: December 28, 2013, 03:03:47 PM »
By using my OTG cable, along with StickMount, I've been able to view files on my USB stick. However, after formatting (exFAT) my USB device, and trying to view files off it once again (using ES file explorer), the folder for the USB Storage now shows up empty.

I have tried different files on the device, to see if my Nexus 7 will read, but to no avail, it just shows an empty folder.

Anyone got any ideas?

According to Chainfire's description in the Play Store, most devices will not work with exFat.

Got it fixed! Thanks very much.

When formatting my USB drive through windows I only had exFAT & NTFS file system options. What I did was download http://files.extremeoverclocking.com/file.php?f=197 - and it gave me the option to use FAT32.

 Problem solved, USB device seems to be working now.
