Does the job
on 13 March 2012
I've tested 3 of the device's 4 functions. I have not tested the "external hard disk" connection.
First, the english language version of the manual reads like a brave attempt at translation from another language. However it would profit from a rewrite by someone whose first language is english to do full justice to the product.
When the device is connected with a USB data storage key, SD, or micro-SD card inserted, all the files appear in /sdcard/usbStorage/sda and can then be managed as if they are on the phone itself. It should be noted that while an SD card should be inserted 'face up' the micro-SD card needs to be inserted 'face down'. This wasn't obvious to me at first.
I have also found out that in the same way that these external devices need to be "safely removed" when connected to a PC it is also necessary to do the same thing on the SGS2 via the "Notifications" pull down menu. Otherwise subsequent connections may not work.
In summary, now that I understand a couple of things which weren't at first clear, this device does everything that I expect it to.
