Picked up an OTG-USB cable and a Flash Drive(USB 3.0) for my Nexus 7 because 16GB just isn't enough storage for my needs.And I must say it works perfectly. You just need to grab Stickmount from the Playstore. This is exactly what I needed to expand the limited local storage on my Nexus 7. Now I can put all my media needs(Movies,Music,etc.) on a Flash drive and not compromise my precious internal storage needed for apps,app data,ROM Backups,etc.Posted Image

I have a cable that looks just like the one posted. Mine is literally the cheapest one I could find on Amazon. Just do a search there for USB OTG cable and you'll be set.

Hello,

I've been considering a Nexus 7 as a replacement for my wife's clunky laptop while traveling. My main reason for needing this device is to pull pictures off of my DLSR and the Point and Shoot camera. My thoughts were to use the cable you show in the OP connected to a sdcard reader. From there, use picasa to upload the images to our picasa account along with an FTP program in order to backup the pictures to my ftp server. From there I could clean off the pictures from the card and continue on. Will this idea work with that cable? Just want a first hand account before I pull the trigger.

Thanks in advance.
