Chromebook Tab 10 USB-C socket won't connect to USB sticks

pstjmackpstjmack Posts: 3Member New User
My new Chromebook Tab 10 is going great, except that I can't use its USB-C socket for anything except charging. I can't read external USB sticks with it, or separately powered external HDs. I've tried using a variety of USB-C cables and connectors, none of which seem to work. Does anyone have any advice or tips?

    Seems like I either just didn't push the connector in far enough, or should have flipped the USB-C plug the other way. Either way, it's working now. Thanks all!
