Hi to everyone. I just bourght a yoga tablet 10 and to be honest, i am a little disappointed. It just wont connect with my WD elements harddrive (1 tb). I bourght a OTG adapter to convert from micro usb to 2.0usb. Do i need a different adapter, or is it a sowfware problem? A have far too many movies and photos to use micro sd card, and i go on travels soon. So what do i have to do to solve this problem???  Thanks for ur help, cheers matti.

this shows it just working, the only things i can think of is what format is the 1tb hdd, do you have a phone to test the micro usb to usb2 as this should work the same if its android
Thx dave

The stock Android will only read FAT32 formatted drives. You can:

 

1. Google for a utility to format your drive FAT32 as modern Windows OS will not allow it. This format has a maximum file size of 4GB - 1 byte.

 

2. Root your tablet and add an application to read NTFS formatted drives.

I am also having the same issue that my Yoga isn't recognizing my WD harddrive.  I have tested the drive and verified there are no issues with it. 

 

I also connected a small flash drive to the OTG cable to verify that is working. And yes the Yoga found the flash drive.

 

I also verified that the harddive is a FAT32 file structure.

 

Not to be dense - but what do you mean about "root" ing the table?

 

thanks

Susan
