    USB flash drive not picking up??

    I'm trying to connect a 4GB Sandisk Flash drive to the usb port on my keyboard. The Flash Drive lights up for one second when connecting then the light shuts off and I cant access the files on the flash drive. Has anyone had this problem before? Not sure if its my flash drive or the actual keyboard USB port thats defected. Any help is greatly apprecianted. THanks.

    Hi,

    Does it work in a PC?

    What format is it, NTFS or FAT32?

    If it flashes, it is getting power for a bit, but not initialising!
    ASUS Transformer 16GB TAB B60, DOCK B60
    Build Number:- IML74K.WW_epad-9.2.1.27-20120615
    Mobile Dock Version:- EP101-0213

    Try a reboot with the drive in the dock.

    Movie files sometimes can't play with the stock movie viewer. There are more options in the Market. Try Moboplayer, MXvideo Player, and Dice Player to name a few.

    Did you have any luck getting this working.. I seem to have the same issue.. I have just purchased the Transformer pad 300. I have a 32GB NTFS USB flash drive.. I plug it in, the light on the flash drive goes on then off but the pad never seems to detect the flash drive.

    Are there any special drivers that are required or should this be working stock.

    Any hints greatly appreciated.

    I am also having trouble getting my TF-101 to read usb storage devices. I recently upgraded to the latest stock rom (ICS 4 something). With HC, I was able to read just about anything I put into the usb port. Now, after trial/error, I have noticed that Fat 32 formatted devices work, but not those formated with NTFS (which include a 320gb ext hd and 16gb flash drive). When I put NTFS devices into the usb, the tab flashes "preparing external storage" and goes away. No files seen in any of the file managers I have. In settings/storage, it detects a usb device is connected, but when I click "mount" it just flashes the "preparing external storage" notice in the bottom left and reverts to the mount button.
