About OTG performance - possible reasons

by thumbtalker1st / January 9, 2014 1:57 PM PST

Never before had I a chance to use the so called " On The Go " function . I perceived the most advantage of this function during the travel of last week through my friend.In and out of devices ,very convenient. So when I came back, I ordered at once the same item with him , a SD card reader adapter with OTG . ( I bought it after I read the instruction details and affirm its compatibility with my tablet and phone.)
Firstly I use it with my Samsung Galaxy Tab. The item goes well and I can reach my data quickly and completely. Then I plug it into Nexus 5 with the same Micro SD card. My phone sense this "invader" very slowly. Something is wrong with my data. The data on the card are not shown completely. A part of the data disappear.
I have no experience like this. Any possible reasons why this strange phenomenon happened. Any suggestion prefereed !!

You explained it when you wrote it was the Nexus.

OTG on the Nexus has open discussions on other forums. I decline to find those but move to something I found to work for me.

I put what I want to access up on DropBox or a WiFi memory card. I hope you know DropBox but here's a WiFi device similar to one I use.
And yes there are cheaper things like that.

Mr R. Proffitt , I did not figure out what you want to say. Are you discussing something else about wifi devices ?

In reply to: Confused ....

It's been complained about before. I'm unsure how to reply as if you tell the folk that ask about it they may get upset as you don't offer a fix but nod about it.

Maybe I should not have offered how I move files around on my Nexus as it confused the discussion?
