Do not all powered USB hubs work with this? My coworker was trying to use a powered hub for the 2nd controller and USB stick.

where did you guys get OTG USB adapter? I couldn’t find it on PrimeCables and shipping from Ebay takes forever. Thanks.
I use an OTG hub that already had. It's similar to this one but with and extra USB port:

Both the OTG cables and hubs are available on Amazon.ca if you're in a hurry and willing to pay more. Just avoid the 90° angle adapter as it blocks the HDMI port.

yeah, saw that, but it's basically just a review after it is setup, doesn't tell you much more, like where to get "extra" content.

Going to buy a USB for this thing and finally get it going. I'm just wondering, the USB ports are just USB 2.0 right? If I can get a cheaper USB 2 stick I'll go with that over a USB 3. I assume I should do the USB power mod anyway, but getting a 3 over a 2 won't make a difference in transfer speed in any case.
c'mon get happy! :cheesygri

Here's how to install the new BleemSync version with OTG support and still use AutoBleem after while:


TLDR version:
1. Follow all steps and install Bleemsync on your PSC
2. Now instead of running Bleemsync, run Autobleem off your OTG cable

Did this tonight and it works great. I love AutoBleem for its ease but really wanted the OTG cable support.

Yes, I have no issue using an old 2.5" HD myself. I use an OTG cable but a powered hub should work also. And yes, it should be formatted to FAT32.
