Help Connect USB Drive To Eris? Any Phone?


Feb 24, 2011
What I have is a TLV game/security camera that uses a USB drive. What I am wanting to do is connect it to my phone in the field and view the videos on it if possible.

Can this be done? If not are there any phones out there that will? My contact is up in November.
Connect the USB drive to the Eris? Cannot be done. The phone needs to have USB On The Go functionality built-in to the hardware and the Eris doesn't.

Many tablets have this feature, and I know the Galaxy Nexus does for sure (I've tested this personally :) ).

As for other phones, I honestly couldn't tell you. I have heard of it working on other phones, but I can only tell you it works fully on a Galaxy Nexus.
