Works when others do not. I purchased a Sandisk dual drive for my Droid Maxx. I downloaded Sandisk Memory Zone to drive make the flash-drive accessible; however, Memory Zone would not recognize the Sandisk product (?). I downloaded Nexus Photo Viewer (which worked ) and then purchased this app. It works as well. Question: Can one password protect the flashdrive either with this app or an app that is compatible with this app? Thanks!

Works on my 5 but not on my 7 v1 Works great on my N5 cell but my tablet, a Nexus 7 v1 32G with sim and cell access, nope... Not sure why. I'd love to get it to work though so I can take advantage of my larger memory.
