    Does anyone have a right angle 7-cm micro usb to micro usb otg cable they want to swap? I have an extra 10-cm, but I need the 7, and don't want to wait 2 weeks for shipping from China.

    Apologies if this has been covered elsewhere in this very large thread, but I'm wondering if anyone has luck with an OTG hub and 512gb SDXC card as external storage read through either UAPP or Onkyo HF Player?
    On my Moto X 2015, the OTG hub is functional, and the SDXC card is visible in Settings under USB Storage, with the Oppo HA-2 simultaneously connected to the same OTG hub.
    However, all attempts to get either UAPP or OHF to find that music folder so much as scan it into library have failed. 
    Is the problem with the apps, whereby they don't support folders on external storage via OTG?

    Don't have a 512gb SDXC but do have a 2TB HD formatted on exFAT on my hub.

    On attaching my phone to the hub with my HD, I need to wait a bit for the system to access it. After that, UAPP would have no problems with it.

    Problem only arises when I access UAPP to soon, when the system have not initialized the HD yet.

    Ok maybe I'm moving too quickly, I'll try again and be patient.
    But the Android OS has recognized the card and it's contents via Settings/USB Storage, so I'm not sure why it would take any longer to start the app?
  7. m-i-c-k-e-y
    On my case, when the file manager kicks in. Will close the app and start using UAPP.

    Needs a bit more time to to spin and access the directories w/ 30K+ files of music.

    On another forum, someone claims that this usb otg cable allows you to charge your One Plus One while using usb dacs. Could work with other devices too. Seems like it would be useful for alot of people.

    Does anyone know what's going on with the Galaxy S5?
    When Android 5 was released my ODAC was working native in all apps, which was fantastic. I stopped using the ODAC mobile (well transported to the office) for quite a few months during which there were a couple of OTA Android updates which I applied as I had stability issues with the Samsung email client etc and now DAC does not work any more.
    I notice that USB Audio Pro driver help http://www.extreamsd.com/index.php/2015-07-22-12-01-14/usb-audio-driver states:
    So clearly its a known issue, but when I connect the ODAC I get the cryptic "android did not find any devices, but linux did!" error, which would fit with the above that the kernel sees the USB audio device, but android is not setting up properly.
    I don't have full license and am testing with the trial version, but Onkyo player also cannot see any USB DAC - as it was working native before I was just using google play music and that 100% does not work.
    If I reboot the phone with the OTG cable attached it restarts, if I reboot with the OTG and ODAC the phone hangs on boot - has to be Samsung problem somewhere - anyone having these issues? S5 reports Android 5.0 and version G903FXXU1APA3.
    Googling the issue is pretty futile... so many unrelated OTG issues - clearly Samsung don't care. Its work phone (personal is Nexus 4 - no SD slot or OTG) so I guess 6.0 might come along, but I expected UAPP to work with the "workaround" but that doesn't work either.

    Hmm, I wonder if it's an SDXC thing, seems unlikely given it is really shaking hands through the USB/SD card adapter's own USB controller and the phone is seeing this capacity under Settings/USB Storage.
    Which File Manager app are you using?
  11. m-i-c-k-e-y
    The internal app "My Files"? It pops up automatically after handshaking with my USB HD drive.
    I could not access my USB drive thru UAPP when I manipulate it rapidly before the 'My Files" pop up.
    Using Galaxy Note 3 BTW.

    Hi. Ive been using my Cayin c5 dac, hooked to my Itouch6 and Android. It flawlessly works with the UAPP. But my problem is theres no output on the Hiby app. Also no output on the Onkyo app. Can we trace the problem here?
  13. imeem
    Does hibymusic support outputting in 24 bit? I have some 24 bit music files and my Fiio E17 supports 24 bit, but hibymusic says that it is outputting in 16 bits.
  14. m-i-c-k-e-y
    Can you be more specific. No volume? Could not be recognized? Have you used the physical volume button? Android: what phone?

    Hi first of all!
    I´ve another compatibility question regarding an Android device.
    I bought myself a Samsung Galaxy 10.1 2014Edition Tablet.
    My phone (Sony XperiaZ3Compact) works perfectly fine with my Hidizs AP100 on USB DAC Mode.
    My Tablet doesnt. I found it to work with the Hiby Music App, but i want to use the USB DAC to stream spotify, which doesnt work at all.
    Strange since Android 5.1.1 should support USB DACs , right?
    Thanks for the help
