    Can a WD 2TB USB DRIVE be read in a NOTE 10.1?

    My A500 can!

    Have no problems with USB ThumbDrives/Sticks!!!

    I don't think it should be a problem.

    Unfortunately, my WD 2TB USB DRIVE will not even recognise connect. NOTE thinks there is something but doesn't see it. Must have something to do with the 30 pin to USB ADAPTOR. I think it can only operate with FAT 32 - come on Samsung you can't be serious.

    HOW ABOUT AN ADAPTOR THAT READS NFS???

    It may be that connector as every NTFS drive I have connected to my USB port has been fine. I'm using them on the USB port on my ASUS Transformer dock with 4.2.1

    One down side of the NOTE 10.1 no USB PORTS. 30 pin adaptor plugs into the tablets 30 pin port and provides USB or SDcard reader. But the adaptor, I think, is only compatible with FAT 32 drives/sticks.

    Again I say to Samsung, Surely you can't be serious.

    I don't have this tablet, never seen it, but I doubt an adapter has the ability to pick and choose what filesystem it uses. Most likely your kernel doesn't support NTFS.

    If you have adb setup

    adb shell

    cat /proc/filesystems


    Below is my output, as you can see my kernel supports ntfs does yours?

    Code:
    root@android:/ # cat /proc/filesystems
    nodev	sysfs
    nodev	rootfs
    nodev	bdev
    nodev	proc
    nodev	cgroup
    nodev	tmpfs
    nodev	debugfs
    nodev	sockfs
    nodev	usbfs
    nodev	pipefs
    nodev	anon_inodefs
    nodev	rpc_pipefs
    nodev	devpts
    	ext3
    	ext2
    	ext4
    nodev	ramfs
    	vfat
    nodev	nfs
    	ntfs
    nodev	fuse
    	fuseblk
    nodev	fusectl
    nodev	oprofilefs

    In the fear of appearing stupid, which adb must I load?

    I just checked my mnt device listing - I can mount up to 6 USBdrive devices - listing A to F... Btw the tablet is a Samsung Galaxy NOTE 10.1 very much like the SAMSUNG Galaxy Tab 2 10.1.

    I just received an email from Samsung saying that the NOTE 10.1 does not support USB - I never heard such crap in my life. It just that even they don't really know what they are pushing.

    I have the USB Connection Kit P30pin which supports USB FAT32. I have plugged Thumbdrives/sticks/jump drives into my NOTE which has a specially adapted interface setup -simply touching the USB symbol (next to the clock) unmounts the USB STICK. The NOTE has USB Hosting functionality as stated in the manual, but looking at USB Connection Kit the info pamphlet say it supports FAT32 max of 32GB. So it must be this adapter and not the tablet!

    the tablet is running JB 4.1.2 - which is the latest JB. And its Quad core.

    Confusion reigns at Samsung.

    The following is an email from Samsung Support:


    Thank you for your feedback. We appreciate the time and effort you have taken to provide it to us. Unfortunately the Galaxy Note 10.1 is not able to connect to external hard drives and is not designed to do so.

    Please also note that the Note 10.1 also does not support the use of a USB.

    Well that is a load of codswallop. I bought the USB Connection Kit and it works. It is even on the accessories list for the NOTE on their website. Have a look at the pic I uploaded.

    Surely you can't be serious, Samsung.
