Just got a SM-T530 two days ago and can't seem to locate an OTG Cable for it. Need one with a female USB 2.0 connection and the male mini-connection for the tablet. Can anyone help?

Thanks much

Hello.
My Tab 4 10.1 came without any USB ports. Is there any way to correct this with cables via the charging port?

You need one of these. It is called an OTG(on the go) cable, it allows you to use non-powered USB devices, such as a thumb drive, mouse ect...

I have a sm-t530nu Galaxy Tab 4 10.1 tablet/ It's a great tablet but storage space is very limited.
I was wondering if anyone has had any luck on using an OTG cable with this tablet to connect a thumb drive (or even better an external hard drive) as storage.
Samsung says it is not possible for this tablet to do so because of hardware limitations, but then again the same rep told me that Android can not handle doing this either.
Any help would be Great, thanks in advance.

Does the sm-t530nu support OTG for use with a Thumbdrive? Does anyone know this from experience?

From experience? No. I don't own that device. It's cheap enough to try (IMO), and this item suggests that it is supported.

With my Tab2, the thumb drive works nicely (as did a wireless mouse and a keyboard). Occasionally, I've had to reboot the Tab to get the OTG to work. I've had less luck with hard drives (read I'm not sure I got it to work). With drives I believe that it depends on the way the drive is formatted, but also how much power it consumes.
