We will do a brief review of Moto G 2015’s android 6.0 software update later. Till the time we are here to discuss a storage issue that most users are facing right now after updating to android M. This issue is related to USB OTG drives. Whenever we connect a USB OTG drive to our Moto G3 then file manager apps like ‘ES File Explorer’ and ‘Asus File Manager’ are not picking up the USB OTG. I have checked Asus file manager and it is no longer supporting the USB OTG and is unable to access it. This may be due to the new app permissions feature and developers may fix this soon. You can see in the screenshot below that Asus file manager is unable to access the USB on the go drive.
Fix USG OTG Not Showing In File Manager Apps After Updating Moto G 2015 To Android 6.0Till now I have a solution to access the USB OTG drive on http://ikkemunandar.blogspot.com /2015/12/motorola-moto-g-3rd-generation-tips-tricks-hidden-secrets.html" target="_blank">Moto G 3rd Gen. Since in the first paragraph, I have mentioned that the android 6.0 software update for the Moto G3 has an inbuilt file manager. Whenever you connect a USB OTG drive to your phone a popup appears in the notification panel. Here you need to tap ‘Explore’ to view the files stored on the USB drive. The inbuilt file manager is capable of doing all basic file operations like cut, copy, paste, move and folder creation.
The USB drive is also not visible in the ‘ES File Explorer’ home page. But it is not like that. If you open the ‘ES File Explorer’ and tap the menu on the top left then you will find an option ‘Local’. When you tap this it will expand and will show you the connected USB OTG drive. Tap this drive to explore it and from here you can copy or move files from this directory.
