OTG file transfer - Galaxy S8

 Share

I'm running into issues when trying to transfer files from my camera's sd card onto the phone's micro sd or other media using a usb c dongle. 

 

Basically, I will select the option "transfer files" but it will just return to the default "charge usb c device" without allowing me to access my sd card's directory. 

 

Is anyone aware of a fix or better yet an app that will allow me to backup my sd card to an external device like a hard drive from my phone while on the field?

I guess buy an actually OTG flashdrive that can transfer files from your phone to the flashdrive through an app.

What`s the difference between an OTG flash drive and a flash drive flash drive? 

 

Do you have any apps to recommend for this?

 

Also, I know you can use a dongle with multiple usbs on android, to say attach both a keyboard and mouse, I`ve done it before on my old z3, but can you use one to transfer directly from an sd card to a usb stick?

It's an flash drive that you can directly connect to your phone. The apps that allow the transfer depends on the OTG drive you buy (brands have their own file-transfering apps that are compatible with their OTG drive).

For the last question, I haven't really tried that so I don't know.
