    I Have a Passport running and got myself a USB OTG Cable.
    When I connect a mouse it works fine, but when I connect a Sidecom USB hub and use my computer to provide extra power it doesnt work and connect the mouse to it it doesnt work.

    When I connect my card reader (trust) it doesnt work.
    When I connect any usb stick (tried 3) it doesnt work, tried 2Gb, 4Gb, 8GB.

    So my question is, is this related or my hardware / sticks (everything works on my computer).
    And other people I asked to test (before I got the passort) told me it works fine.

    To access the USB content you have to open the file manager the click on the left bottom icon to bring up the drives, is that what youre looking for?

    I know.. but the USB stick isnt there.. when i check storage at system settings nothing is there.
    When I connect the usb it doesnty say "usb device connected" it does with the mouse.

    Might be a silly question, but the computer you are using for external power doesn't register the mouse, does it? I assume one usb is for power and one is for data/power. This could be a hub issue but I honestly never thought about how a hub would work with the Passport. Does it matter what order you plug in usb devices? Like say it only recognizes the first usb device but not any subsequent devices? Could this be a driver issue?

    No because it's only for power.

    Brother, off topic, but where did you get the BlackBerry stick from?

    This happened to me on my Passport. Unfortunately I don't remember what I did, but it was one of two things.
    1) I restarted the phone
    2) I did a clean swipe
    After one of those two things or both, the problem went away and never came back.

    Don't know if you could solve your usb mounting problem, but I couldn't also mount my usb stick and I found why. My usb sticks were formated in ntfs format. I tried with fat32 format and it works well.
    Hope it can help.
