Does Lenovo Tab M10 FHD plus support USB hosting?

2021-02-23, 9:28 AM

Pretty much what I'm asking in the subject. I just got one of these yesterday (2nd Gen) I already updated to Android 10. I hooked it up to my PC with the provided cable and it did recognize it there, but I do have a Zoom G3n guitar pedal that I have an app for so I can edit patches, I do not have an OTG cable yet, but I do have a a micro adapter that I put on the end of the provided cable that I was able to use for now, but the app didn't recognize that anything was connected. I know OTG works because I connected it to my PC, but it did say in the app that the device had to support USB hosting too. Is that the problem? Or do I need an actual OTG cable for it to work? I do have one coming. Or do I need change something in the setting to make it work or another special cable? I hope all of this makes sense and someone can help.

Probably should ask if there is a recommended cable to give full functionality. The picture shows the one I ordered on eBay. I've heard some work better than others though.

Probably the big question is, how do I get it to detect another device? It's not a storage device it's a guitar pedal, I assume the information is through midi, but I don't know.

The OTG cable arrived today. It did work with the app to connect to my guitar pedal, so this is solved.
