Hey, is this supposed to let us plug in external storage via USB-C?

I tried the steps above, all successful, but when I plugged my Samsung T5 external SSD (NTFS formatted) it is not recognized at all.

I'm using WoA Version 1803 (Build 17134.471) on Lumia 950 XL

Sadly, the only way to make USB-C is using a powered dock like the official Display Dock. Otherwise, no device will be detected.

OK, it makes sense that USB "power-out" doesn't work given that charging (power in) does not work (yet?) either.

It's a limitation, but it's not that bad, as long as it is understood.

This whole project is a miracle already and a huge hack(in the good sense).

Thanks for the clarification.

Not currently. Charging is a separate thing from USB data.

Now it's charging. Suppose this threat can be closed.

Hello. I can’t install driver on windows 10 arm (950xl). Driver for usb to rs485 adapter (FT232R usb uart). In the device manager, he writes that "the device code 28 drivers are not installed." My laptop has windows 10 64bit installed, everything works there. What can be done with this?
