Thread: Teensy 3.6 reading USB memory stick

  1. #1

    Teensy 3.6 reading USB memory stick

    I'd like to wire the 2nd USB port on the Teensy 3.6 to a USB Host cable like https://www.pjrc.com/store/cable_usb_host_t36.html
    and use it to plug in a USB memory stick. I'll only be reading the stick, not writing to it.
    Is there anything like the SD library that I can use?

    Hi Paul,

    We're working on a commercial project that really could benefit from being able to read/write files to an external USB. Is this functionality on the plan for the near future (say less than 6 months) or way in the future? I realise this is a significant piece of work.

    Many thanks
    Gary

    LOL. If it is commercial - what about helping the opensource community - and help to develop it ? I don't hink that you just want take alle the work of others and earn the money ?

    It's probably more than 6 months out, for USBHost_t36.

    Some work has recently been done in the regular USB Host Shield library to support reading USB disks. Maybe take a look at that?

    I also want to use the USB host to write to a memory stick.
    How close is this to a reality?

    Hmmm, I guess I'll dig into my Kinetis Tower kits and see if any of their code works....
