Is it possible via USB Y cable or any other means to connect a Samsung 10.1 30 pin to an external hard drive and at the same time, an external power supply to the Hard Drive. I have concluded getting an adapter for the tablet to go from 30 pin to USB. Any other takes on this.. Thanks in advance.


It is very much possible, the hard drive can be powered seperately and connected to an android device by using a hub like the following : http://www.vantecusa.com/en/product/view_detail/586

You need an OTG cable for the device aswell, whivh you van get at any local store for a couple of dollars.

  • No go,I guess I should have been more specific. The external hard drive is a portable USB powered. The item mentioned for a fix is for SATA. – user342772 Jul 9 '14 at 18:33
