I have an andriod phone and samsung /andriod tablet
Both with mini usb ports only
I have an adapter with a SD card slot

I cannot find an ap or anyway to use either of them to view pics off of the SD cards in my game cam

Lots of SD aps but none are working for me


Have any of you made this work?

I have the adapter, thats not the problem.


I can make the connection, its just that the phone and tablet don't see the SD card
I have a file manager AP on both devices and the SD card that is connected through the usb hub doesn't show up.
The device cannot see it and I don't know how to make it do that

when you plug in the SD card through the cable, how does you phone show you the pics? Are they in your gallery or do you have to use an AP to view them?

Note all android platforms seem to have the ability to access an external reader/drive. My S4 did not. My S7 does. It may be helpful if you get the ES File Explorer from the app store. It is free.

If you can't get it to work with ES File Explorer, then your phone may not be capable without modification (which I don't understand how to do).

I view mine through my photo gallery in my phone with an adapter. Sometimes i have to plug and unplug a few times for it to pick up the photos. It also wont find them at all if the adapter is plugged into my phone before the sd card is in the adapter

that must be it guys.
My andriods just cant see the external sd card.

My son has a cheap tablet he no longer uses that has an external micro sd slot, maybe I can use the SD adapters I have and read the pics with that thing

Also like ricky said, sometimes its the way it's plugged in too. I think mine has to have sd card plugged into the reader before plugging reader into phone too.

yeah, I have tried that also. My son's old tablet has a micro SD TF slot that works. I can switch out my SD's to them and use the adapter

I have a female USB to male microUSB adapter which I used on my Samsung S3 a few times. I plugged a small SD card reader into it. I don't recall the details, other than it was painfully slow to view pictures and I gave it up. In my case I hunt at a friend's place and he has a house there. I brought up an old XP computer and we just use that to view game camera photos. It's not connected to the internet, so I don't worry about it getting infected with anything.

So, can't really offer help other than to say I did make it happen with my old S3 phone, but I concluded it wasn't worth the trouble.

Off topic but if you have an S7 don't use it on airplanes or charge on board...Some of the batteries blow up at altitude.

well, I figure the key to making this work

An android device has to have OTG "On the Go" support
this is the hard ware that it was built with that allows it to read other mounted media
not all Android devices have it

I found an ap that finds out if yours does and I found that my Samsung tablet does
so I open the file manager and then insert the card reader with the card in it
like you guys said.

this time, I saw a 2nd SD card in the files, one it the on board card the other was the one it was reading through the adapter

I can view the pics and from there I can copy the ones I want into my tablets photo file and delete them off of the SD card if I want to
