Nexus Media Importer Description

Nexus Media Importer allows you to stream and transfer music, video, photos and documents from a USB flash drive or card reader connected to your Nexus 7, Nexus 10, Galaxy Nexus, Xoom or other Android 4.0+ devices with USB Host support. See technical notes for a list of supported file types and file systems. This is the only non-root solution for devices that do not provide native support for external storage. Requires the following hardware:
1. An Android 4.0+ device. Known compatible devices include the Google Galaxy Nexus, Nexus 7 & 10 and the Motorola Xoom. Please try the free "Nexus Photo Viewer" first if you do not have one of these devices. Due to hardware limitations, the Nexus 4 is not supported.
2. An USB OTG (On-The-Go) cable. Costs range from $1-10 USD, see screenshots for examples.
3. An USB Flash Drive or USB Card Reader with a flash memory card inserted, see screenshots for examples. Please see the FAQ on our website if you are trying to connect an external hard drive or other device.To use:
-If you are using an card reader, put the flash memory card in the reader first.
-Attach your USB device to the OTG cable.
-Attach the OTG cable to the Nexus or other device.
-The application should launch automatically.
-Photos can be browsed by selecting from the list then swiping back and forth.
-Videos can be streamed with the Play icon.

-Use the Connect screen to determine the viewed device and the destination device for the Copy/Move operations.Support:
-If you have an issue, please visit the Developer's Website or contact us by clicking "Email Developer".
-Currently, most USB Mass Storage devices are supported. Due to the mind boggling number of USB devices available it is not 100% If you contact us, we may be able to support your device in a future release. If you have doubts, try the free "Nexus Photo Viewer" first.Technical Notes:
-DOES NOT REQUIRE ROOT! Rooting may void your device's warranty.
-The USB drive/flash memory card must be formatted as FAT16, FAT32 or NTFS (no exFAT or extN support). FAT & NTFS are the most common formats for flash cards and USB Drives.
-Read Only for NTFS.
-Hard Drives. It is strongly recommended that you use external power when connecting a hard drive to a tablet. Please see the troubleshooting guide on my web site for more information. Do not connect an unpowered hard drive to a phone!
-This is a media streamer. Media types not natively supported by Android will require third party software. There are many excellent free and paid apps. in the Play market. For example:  "BS Player", "MX Player" and "Dice Player"

Great for Nexus 7This is an excellent app that allows me to import pictures from my DSLR and then upload them to dropbox (From within the dropbox app). I have discovered that it does not work with my portable external hard drive nor a flash drive with a light on it; these devices probably draw too much power And it is a limitation due to hardware and not this app. Being able to view and import files without rooting my Nexus tablet is totally worth the cost! If you own an Nexus 7 or Samsung Galaxy device, I would also download Light HD and Dead Pixel Test Ossibus Software!

Does exactly what it saysThe Nexus Media Importer app is essential if you want to transfer your own files to your Nexus 7, from a USB stick or memory card (connected to a card reader). With the ability to select multiple files, & transfer them all at once, it really couldn't be any simpler. The app also comes with a built in media preview window, and also allows you to stream content from your connected device. A USB OTG cable is required. I'd also recommend a file manager app, for deleting viewed files from your Nexus 7.
Nexus 7Just tried this with a card reader and sd card, works a treat, off to Amazon to order a micro usb stick now.
