    Hi folks I've never use USB OTG and would be grateful if someone can recommend a brand of adapter to use.

    I'm not sure if this applies to the passport or not. But with my Z30 if I want to use more than one device on USB OTG, you'll need a powered USB hub. You can find these quite cheap on the likes of Amazon etc. Basically you're looking for a USB hub with a mains adapter. Once you're all set up with your adapter and hub (if required) you just plug devices in and go! Drives appear in the File Manager, keyboard will allow text entry and a mouse cursor will appear when you hook one up.

    Make sure it is formatted with a compatible file system.

    Got my Passport today and plugged in the OTG cable and was able to play a movie on the USB stick. Tried then to plug in my mouse wireless receiver and the mouse worked on the Passport. This may be useful.
