    I am new to this forum so if the question I am about to ask has been answered before please forgive me. I have an Highsense Sero 8 tablet running Android 4.4.2 . I am unable to get it to recognise a USB when using an O.T.G. cable. The entry in "Settings" that covers USB is greyed out, even when USB is attached. Can anyone assist me with this problem?

    Is yours an Hisense Sero 8? Can anyone tell me if it is possible for an "on the go" cable to work on a phone but be faulty on a tablet? I only ask because so many people refer to troubles with these cables.

    Sure is Derek. I've had no problems using an OTG cable on my Sero 8.
    Can't say about the tablet vs phone issue tho.
