How to connect usb sticks to your Samsung Galaxy S2 for extra storage on the go.

Today I finally received my Micro USB OTG adapter.

So I thought I would test it out, connecting a USB stick to my Galaxy S2.

This was really straightforward, so theres not much explaining to do here.

  1. Put some content on your usb stick, like a movie, some pictures or a sound track.
  2. Put the usb stick into the OTG adapter, and then the OTG adapter into the phone.
  3. Browse the content of the usb stick with your favourite file browser app (I used Astro)
    You find the contents of the usb stick under /mnt/sdcard/usbStorage/sda

This is great if you need some extra capacity, want to bring with you files, copy and paste from/to the phone, etc.
