Accessories USB connector kit problem


Jul 18, 2013
I have the connector kit and find it great for storing additional media on both USB sticks and SD cards.

However I am unable to write any files from the tab. I have tried different USB sticks and SD cards. It always fails to write with no specific message - just "failed to copy" (es file browser). Using My Files I can copy a file on the tab but when I go to the USB device there is not even a paste icon available.

My tab is running android 4.0.4 and both USB sticks and SD cards are formatted in FAT32.

I have searched the web and can find nothing that can assist me. Everything I read says you should be able to write without any problem.

What am I doing wrong?

Thanks in advance for any advice.
