Hi anyone know why I can't connect my touro ext 1tb 2.5" HDD?

I can connect the touro to an ainol hero2  no problem and I can connect a self powered ext 3.5" 500gb HDD to the Cube no problems.

Any ideas/suggestions would be greatly appreciated. 

This is my first ever forum post so apologies if I've done anything wrong :-)

There is a possibility that the Novo has the specific driver for the HDD and the Cube does not have it.

The files that deal with this devices are in
system/etc/usb_modeswitch.d

Also finding what PID/VID your HDD has, will help you finding faster the exact file that you need from the Novo, and copy it to CUBE.

Hi thanks for that.

Found the pid and vid for my device and those numbers aren't in the directory so thought I would copy all the files from novo to the cube but using anttek explorer it won't let me do it, says I don't have the permissions.

You need a file explorer that has mounting capabilities, and which can set permission.
It would be better to find which pid/vid your hdd has, and look only for that one.
At least the Cube, needs to be rooted to have a succes doing this, also you need to set the permission similar to other pid/vids allready present on the Cube.

You could copy the files also using ADB

Le:
Have in mind that not all of tablets can mount/read NTFS partitions an app like NTFS mounting should help.

Tbh I think this is beyond me, the pid and vid of my HDD are 1014 and 4971 and those aren't in the directory on the novo. I'm not sure if my cube is rooted, I don't think so and don't really want to root it if it's not as it is working fine for me apart from the HDD issue and from what I've read rooting can be tricky and cause the tablet to become unstable

first, check the type of file system by connecting your HDD on your PC; then right click => Properties

Only FAT32 are supported on this tablet.

So, if your HDD is FAT32, then, you probably face the same issue as me: your HDD needs more power than the tablet can provide. The solution is to use a Y cable (normally provided with your HDD). you connect the main top Y USB to your tablet, the secondary Y USB to a power adaptor, and the bottom Y USB to your HDD.

The Y USB cable is like that:
