    Thanks for the reply do I ned to get that extract brand cable or sony generic cable? I can't see how that cable would fit my device? The left port is the micro USB port middle is the headphone jack and the one to the right is the mini hdmi port
    Yes, from what i can find on specs, Micro HDMI, Micro USB ,as I do not see another way, I do not think make Micro USB 3.0 cable itsefl goes directly into USB 3.0 Device without using this OTG type cable.

    Is that in the Micro USB 3.0 Port and is that OTG USB 3.0 ? Like shown previously, as 2 different types of OTG cables.

    Wrong connector on one end, for samsung galaxy, picture you showed previous does not show the other end of cable. From what i find there is a USB 3.0 OTG and USB 2.0 OTG. One end is a micro connector for tablet other end would be a female USB 3.0 usually blue inside. Then need a cable like Popeye showed to hook to a USB 3.0 Device, like external HDD

    thank you for all your replies i appreciate all your time. if you get me to the end of this issue i owe u a drink!

    regarding this cable will this cable do the trick then?

    Stereo A Female to Micro USB 3.0 B Male OTG Lead Cable for Galaxy Note 3 N9000 | eBay

    i understand my cable is incorrect and the other side to the cable i pictures above is a female USB not blue in colour.

    can you confirm one last detail for me are these connectors both same same size as the usb 3 one looks alot bigger is width? (as pictured below)

    You see this is something i can not tell from one picture of side of your tablet, but Micro USB 3.0 Male connection looks like second picture in post # 17. As one you linked in that post is correct to a USB 3.0 Micro male to USB 3.0 Female. Yes micro USB 3.0 has two connections, one smaller then the other as seen in white cable in post #17. Unless something i do not know for sure, this is way it comes for USB 3.0, there is micro and a standard i believe.

    If you have this type of connection on your tablet, one small, one larger like white one on one end, then i feel Samsung galaxy one will work.
