    I am using a non-powered Belkin USB 4 port adapter and it works perfectly. Not all USB adapters are created equally- I recommend trying a better and/or different one.

    Welcome to the forum hrssb. You posted essentially the same thing in an existing thread and then created this thread a few minutes later. This is known as cross-posting [duplication] and against forum guidelines.

    I moved your other post here so they are now both in this thread. This WD drive - does it use a password by any chance? If so, there should be a way to turn off that requirement, which might be the problem.

    I am thinking a link to the cord you are using would be most helpful.

    Most OTG cables I have seen use a microUSB port, which the TF700 does not have. You need a USB host adapter (like FrenziedFemale linked to) or a keyboard dock. Using a female-female on the end of the USB charging cord will not work either.

    It can be USB 2.0 or USB 3.0 and it should work. It is not a genuine Asus adapter, so I cannot be sure.

    Check the /Removable/ directory to see if any folders get mounted there (like USBdisk1) when you plug it in.

    Also, some drives require more power than a single USB port can provide and will not work.

    thanks for the reply. It is detecting usb mouse, and I have two hard drives - both WD- one is with 2.0 and second one with 3.0 usb port. When I connect both, it shows power light switched on in hard drives but there is no folder getting mounted in tablet. Could it be an issue related to driver/software?
