Humm..don't know a lot about Android but I think 8.0 or above is able to use usb U-disks. Don't know about Android 7

Might try plugging the drive in before you boot up. Sometimes that works.

To copy or move files from an USB drive, or micro-SD card, to the internal memory of the tablet and vice-versa, a so-called file manager is needed. As Android does not include it, you can use free file managers such as Astro File Manager, OI File Manager or Linda File Manager, available on the Android Market. Installing such an application will allow you to check the content of the storage devices directly.

I have found a way to use my driver with my android, :clap: for other people who has the same problem, :clap: you need to format the hard driver into FAT32 as android can not take more than 32 GB I hope this will help you for the future. :clap:

To your post early on today (That the limitation of a Fat 32 file system, not your Android)

 

android 7 does not use the file system (NTFS) like Windows, the maximum storage for android 7 is 32 GB. To use a hard driver experience you need to spit the driver into partition and no more than 32 GB. And of course FAT 32 file system.

I know the I have done this to my driver and it works. :clap::adios:

There is no version 7 of the Android operating system. Your mini PC runs the Android 2.2 (Froyo) that is reported, and confirmed by the kernel version (2.6.32.9).

 

You are correct that Android doesn't use NTFS. Using FAT32 does not limit you to 32GB partitions, however, which is an artificial limit for FAT32 in XP and newer Windows releases.

 

I have confirmed that Android 2.2 can format 64GB SDXC memory cards (apparently 128GB as well) to full capacity, so big USB flash and external drives should not be a problem.

Try the EXT4 file system on your drive to see if you can get full use of it

You can do this by using Parted Magic which is free and pre-loaded on the Ultimate Boot Disk

http://www.ultimatebootcd.com/

G Parted can change the file system on the drive. You'll find G Parted in Parted Magic on the UBCD

I thought he wanted it for his android?

Steven mentioned "I have put some photos to test", which he couldn't have done with the mini PC since the drive was NTFS-formatted at the time, so he likely has a Windows machine, too. I don't find it much of a stretch that he might want to have the drive usable with both.
