Micro USB OTG to USB 2.0 Adapter Cable


Has anyone tried to use a Micro USB OTG to USB 2.0 Adapter Cable to connect a USB drive or other device to their RAZR-M?  Which cable and did it work?

I have what I think is a standard camera cable I bought to connect a folding keyboard to my Xoom.  I just tried it with a flash drive and the Razr M, and it worked!  At least, looking at Astro File Manager, it saw the USB drive, and allowed me to play audio files from it!

To follow up, the camera cable is one that was designed to mate a digital camera to the Xoom.  It has a USB female connector on one end, and micro-usb on the other.  Not only can I see files from my flash drive on the Razr M with Jellybean, but folders and pictures show up very nicely in the gallery as well!

Just received my "el cheapo" (2 for $3.91 shipping included) micro-USB to female USB converters from Ebay and tried several USB thumb drives that I had lying around.  My RAZR M mounted the drives with no problem and I could read all the files.
