I have an Android phone, HTC One M8

I went into Worst But today and a guy sold me a mini USB to standard USB adapter because my phone uses the mini

good

Then he sold me a media reader...also good.

He advised me to download a file manager ap, which I did and right there in the store, I had it running and to check it we put in his own mini SD card into the reader and the phone was able to view those files


I got it home and took a full sized SD card with the standard DCIM file folder and the game came pic files and the thing will see the USB but says it cannot open the file
I have tried this with a different SD card just to be sure.

It seems I have all of the pieces I just can't make it work.

can anyone who has done this with an Android phone help me please?

We tried with my son's phone, gave up and we now use a cheap point and shoot camera as a viewer. It works and it is easy.

sometimes I like technology and sometimes it just lets you down.

it just seems so easy that is should work. I read up on Android forums about "rooting" your phone which voids the software warranties or is a little risky for me to mess with.

If I can't make it work with a Johnny Cash AYE Dapter kit, I'm not going to mess with it further and take your advice on the camera
I know I have a point and shoot cannon around her somewhere that takes those cards

its the Android software not being able to open the photo files I'm guessing

the phone sees the UBS and the card, it just can't open the files on the card

I think the reason that the contraption workedvreafing his mini sd is because the files on his card were all android phone files

We never tried to open any photo files like jpg
