Update: Has anyone successfully purchased an SD to USB converter that works on the L14? I’ve tried 3 with no success. The first 2 were more complex, multiport hubs with all kinds of ports. I thought “maybe this is too complex and confounding the L14”. So the third was a bare bones single SD to USB drive - no success. I don’t know what kind of technical specification to look for prior to making a purchase. I only know that I plug them in and they don’t work. All 3 have worked on my wife’s windows laptop so I don’t know what feature there is enabling the connectivity with these drives.
I have a point and shoot camera that utilizes a full size SD card for storage. The L14 does not have a full size SD port so I got a Satechi USB-C multiport adapter that has (among other ports) an SD slot. My problem has been getting drives to connect to the L14 through this device. For example it seems to read standard USB drives all right, but it will not read my SD card nor does it read the USB-C port. When I connect the multiport device to my wife’s Windows machine all the I can connect any drive and it reads them right away. On the Windows I can even connect my external DVD player to the USB port on the multiport device and it will play. When I try this on my L14 the drive just winds up and dies, winds up and dies, etc.
Do I need to install some kind of firmware or something to enable proper connectivity through my multiport thing on the L14?
