 Most modern Android devices support USB On-the-Go (OTG) for easy connections to USB devices like Joy Drive. Mobile Toolkit checks your mobile device for USB OTG compatibility upon start. If you receive a notification that your mobile device does not support USB OTG, check the Android settings for an option to enable it. If there is no such setting, try another Android mobile device that supports USB OTG or contact your place of purchase.
