Lenovo Yoga 2 Tablet 10 Windows 8 cannot detect ext. hd using OTG

2015-06-04, 11:30 AM

hi,

 

i got a lenovo yoga 2 tablet 10 distributed by my university, which acts as our laptops during studies. the thing is, i want to transfer my old notes into my ext hd, a WESTERN DIGITAL Elements 10A2, but, despite detecting it as a mass storage device, and the hd loght up (meaning it is poweres up, so that is not an issue here)it did not list the storage in My Computer list, so I cannot access it

 

I tried:

1. remove device and reinstall

2 disconnect and reconnect OTG cable

 

 

 

 

Solved! See the solution

Hi justanobody and welcome to the community,

 

Mine does the same thing, I don't think that the micro USB port provides enough power to actually power the drive.  Mine is also detected but I can't access the files.

 

I do have one that has its own external power supply and I can access the files on it.  For travel usage, I've just been using the cloud or flash drives to transfer files.

 

Regards,

Dave

Thanks Dave!

I didn't know there's one with external supply. Will look for it. Thanks
