    USB Female to Female Coupler

    Can you use a USB 3.0 Female to Female Coupler with the supplied USB Dock cable to connect flash drives or hard drives? If so, the coupler is cheaper and more available than the USB adapter.

    No.

    You'll either need the dedicated Asus adapter or a third party one (possible USB OTG) but I'm unsure if the TF701 supports it. (USB OTG).

    Also, your profile lists your device as a TF700 but you are posting asking about the TF701 - can you update your profile please? Thank you.

    hi trail rider, I can at least confirm such an adapter functions to deliver power to the tf701. I got it at Fry's for around $4 or so. I can try to attach USB otg later today when I get back to the tablet and report if it works OK (PS I know this works direct with the docks USB but I'm guessing you don't have a dock?

    Thanks. I have read that with other transformers, that the performance is spotty. I am not sure what is going on in that little adapter box vs just using the stock data cable as I asked about. I would mainly be interested in USB flash thumb drive communication and possibly a wireless keyboard-mouse using a USB connection.

    Thanks,
    Mike

    What's going on is that the tablet hardware doesn't have the host or OTG connectivity built in - hence you need the add on adapter.
