    Does Windows Phone 8 supports connection of external USB devices like Game controller, mouse, keyboard with it?

    As there are so many new things added in Windows Phone 8, I just want to confirm if Windows Phone 8 supports the connection of external USB devices as like Game controller, mouse, keyboard etc. with it? Can you tell me if there is some settings to be changed for it? If so how to do it?

    dear friend,

    It's nothing but a rumor.

    Apple's iPhone supports external USB dive.

    But frankly speaking, Windows 8 phone doesn't support external USB devices like Game controller, mouse, keyboard with it.

    You can use micro SD card on your windows phone.

    It'll behave like external storage device.

    But to access the micro SD card,you have to install Zune application.

    For that you have synchronize micro SD card with the Zune software.

    hello friend



    Microsoft already told you WP8 supports USB mass storage.

    Well, that's the rumor, that it will give you direct access to the phone's internal memory. You know, USB MASS storage.

    MicroSD is not USB transferable; the rumor refers to WP8 being able to transfer data from the phone's mass storage through USB, instead of simply acting as an adapter for SD cards, as it is well known from the announcement.

    thank you
