Title: Pendrive recognized only if cover display is ON
Post by: cam1965 on January 09, 2020, 01:47:28 pm
Hi,
I've noted that if I connect a  pendrive in usb port of Cosmo Communicator , it  is recognized only if cover dispaly is ON. Also with external sd cards ( with adapter ).
Does anybody had experienced this ?
Thanks.

The right side USB port only works when the coverdisplay is on. Same applies for charging from the right side.

Ok. Thank you. I will try later ( I am at work now )  with the left side USB port.

Just bought a lycander Hub(LHB - 102) and inserting an SDA-card doesnt mount - I am just kindly asked, whether I would like to formate it :-( ... how do you access your sd s/pendrives?! Do they just show up in the filemanager??

It may be related to the format of the card. If it is NTFS or EXFAT you need this app to read it: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?...plugins_ntfs_ro (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.paragon.tcplugins_ntfs_ro)

I am using file manager flashlight + clock  ( google search on it or in play store ). Also using this adapter ( see photo attached )

Ok, tried again:

- charge-through (left side) works
- LAN-Connection: doesnt work :-(
any ideas?

To be tested: HDMI

I'm surprised Ethernet doesn't work - every USB Ethernet adaptor I've tried so far has. RE HDMI - unless it is DisplayLink, I doubt very much that it will work. Only the PC HDMI adaptor and DisplayLink adaptors have been found to work so far.
