Plugs a thumb drive into the micro port. So simple to transfer files. Don't have to mount and dismount as with your SD micro card. Highest Qualiity and StarTech is best choice.
A call to Toshiba, and a week of waiting, they sent a flash drive (we had to buy it) with the software restore. She plugged the flash drive into the end of this and plugged this into the power port of her computer. VOILA, she pressed on and the plus button and arrived safely at a boot menu where she was able to resurrect her tablet.
Even Staples was unable to tell us what to do, and we thought we were totally out of luck, so I am very glad for little adapters like this that allowed us to do what seemed impossible!
From now on I know ...
Android KitKat USB Mouse and Keyboard
The mouse and keyboard modes work on KitKat without any special app (I'm using a keyboard plugged into my phone as I type this). I tried plugging in a Logitech wired keyboard, as well as a Logitech wireless mouse. Both worked flawlessly. It's kind of funny to see a mouse arrow cursor appear on my phone's display.
Android KitKat USB File Management
The USB mass storage host mode on Android KitKat typically requires you to download a USB plug-in app. But the good news is there's no need to root your phone, as there is one app (USB-Stick Plugin) that works with the Total Commander file manager app. The two together allowed my phone to see all storage areas on my wife's Droid 4, and to copy, paste, and delete from both the internal and external areas of that phone--all without rooting my HTC One. Now if Google would just fix KitKat to allow apps to modify my own phone's external SD card!
I read through the complaints (1-3 star ratings) of this product, and found almost all had to do with user error or the poor physical fit of USB connectors in general. Some users complained the connection was too loose; others that it was too tight. Nearly all of the comments about poor fit or build quality related to the cable adapter, not the one-piece adapter, which I found to be quite solidly built, and fit very well on both sides. Yes, the USB-A side is a little shallow, but it's not loose. And yes, the micro USB side is somewhat firm--more so than any other phone micro USB connector I've tried. So I agree with one reviewer that this device could cause issues in the future (minus one star).
This single unit USB OTG adapter is probably better built than the cable version of this product. Be aware that the snug fit might stress your micro USB port, as these ports tend to be easily damaged. But the product works exactly as it should and is suitably compact.
