Does Kindle Paperwhite 10th gen support USB OTG out of the box?

I just got myself a kindle paper white. I would like to know if it supports USB OTG so that I may transfer files from my android phone to the kindle directly without needing a computer.

Does USB OTG work with the Kindle paper white 10th gen? I have been using an cheap USB OTG cable and it doesn't seem to work.

Even the most ancient eReaders work as storage on my oldest Android phone, a Sony-Ericsson.
Make sure the "host end" is at the phone. Double check with a regular cable and a OTG adaptor, which are just passive wired, or with a different slave device to test cable.

The ability or not of the ereader to support OTG is irrelevant as it has to be the regular USB client or slave. The phone has to be the host.

Hmm thanks for that. Unfortunately it just isn’t working. Even though external hard drives and pen drives work just fine with the same OTG cable. I’m wondering if the tenth gen paperwhite has some extra limitations.

Does your phone detect the kindle at all?

Also, if it expects a partitioned drive, it won't work because the PW4 exports formatted unpartitioned drive.

It’s working now! OnePlus has this weird mode where it needs me to turn on OTG mode manually.

Thanks so much for helping!
