Nexus USB OTG (On The Go)

USB OTG on Android devices

So last week I got a new Toy, a SanDisk Dual USB Drive (http://www.sandisk.com/products/usb/dualdrive/).
The drive is available on amazon: http://www.amazon.com/SanDisk-Android-Smartphone-Tablet-SDDD-032G-G46/dp/B00HR78S2Q

The product itself is a great idea, a Flash Drive for the computer AND mobile devices however, you should take notice that only android devices supporting OTG are compatible.
Sandisk has offered a partial list on their site, My Nexus devices were not on that list.

Inserting the USB Drive to the devices, I could get the drive to be visible.
Sandisk offers supporting software for the devices called "SanDisk Memory zone" free on Google play.
I tried installing the app but it didn't help accessing the drive.


Of course I checked Google for the issue for both my Nexus 5 and nexus 7 and results were not conclusive.
Some sites said that the Nexus devices supported OTG Some said they dont and others said you need to root the devices and some had other work a rounds.

How to Use USB OTG In Any Nexus Without Rooting

Ok its very simple.
All I did was download ES File Explorer from Google play (its free), link.
Notice the USB2002 option on the bottom left.

Thats it, No rooting, No app buying.
Checked and working on both Nexus 7 and Nexus 5.

Enjoy.

  13. TV with LED backlighting
    It is easy to backlight TV screens. There are many options for LED light strips, including color-changing and colored ones.


    What you will need:

    We recommend 5050 RGB or Single Color LED Strip for backlighting your TV screen. It has high luminosity, and comes in a variety colors.
    The dimensions of your TV screen will determine the length of the strips. Connect the strips using connectors for LED light strip connectors, particularly around corners.
    The wattage needed to run the strips can be calculated by multiplying its length with the wattage per mile. Example: 5 m of 5050 LED strip light will consume 5.4 w/m = 72w.
    Wireless RF LED strip controllers allow you to control the color temperature, brightness and color temperature of LED light strips.
