    OTG cable support

    Hey Everyone!

    So I was under the impression that the HD7 had USB OTG support. I was wrong. I'm sorry everyone =(. There is a hardware limitation on the tablet and it should not be compatible.

    With that said, I have seen users out there, on this forum and others, that have reported their OTG cable working with the HD7s. If you have OTG working with your tablet, can you report back and let me know which cable you are using? These conflicting reports seem weird so I'm trying to get this all sorted out. If there's a specific cable out there that will work for some reason, I would love to spread the word to everyone. If you have a working one, please feel free to share here!

    Many thanks in advance!

    I have scoured ebay but could not find any similar to this.

    Thanks anyway.

    They are around lots of places. I've seen them at Fry's Electronics, Walmart, etc. You have to make sure it says OTG Adapter. There are a few other configurations that look the same..

    Hi GKAS
    I have bought the following OTG adapter and it does not work with my HD7 - Micro USB to Female USB OTG On The Go Adapter Cable for Sony Xperia Z Ultra | eBay
    Surely if they are a standard OTG adapter any brand that is to the specification should work. What are you running using this cable
    Thanks
    Dave

    Not all micro USB ports have the same pinouts so I wouldn't go so far as to say any one would work. Some people have found that out the hard way.
