    One of the things I like about the Z30 is the ability to plug a USB OTG device directly to the Z30 and it will show up in File Manager as a separate device. Has anybody body tried using USB OTG with the new Passport? If you have please share with us your experience.

    Yes USB OTG works on the Passport, just the same as on the Z30.

    Which brand are you using the the USB OTG?
    Are you connecting it directly to the Passport or via a USB hub?
    I bought a Kingston Digital 32GB Data Traveler MicroDuo USB 2.0 micro USB OTG DTDUO/32GB from amazon for my sister's Z30 (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...UvbUpU10909959). It works quite well. However, I don't have a spare unit to try out with the Passport.
    Thanks.

    I connect it directly to my Passport. As for brand, pretty sure it's just a generic one from monoprice a friend picked up. No big brand name on it as far as I can see. Works great for me

    I bought a Silicon Power brand 32gb from Amazon Canada and it works well on the Passport and Z30. Here is the link to the 16gb version of the one I bought. When I choose the 32gb, the image looks different, so do your own research on this.

    I also bought a Transcend reader, that reads SD, microSD, and included a USB port on it as well so you can plug in a USB device.

    Any generic USB OTG will work. No need to spend a lot of money buying a name brand.
