The Moto Z Force has the new USB-C port. Is there an adapter available that will allow USB OTG devices with micro-USB plugs to work with the Moto Z? I took a chance on this one: http://https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01FN09I7W/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 but it failed to accomplish anything. I have a USB inspection camera and a basic thumb drive, both with micro-USB connectors. Both worked fine with my Droid Ultra Razr. Neither was recognized when connected to the Moto Z Force through the adapter.
I can see how this is a great adapter to have. We do not offer this accessory. However, I’m confident Motorola will be able to provide you with options. http://www.motorola.com/us/home

Unfortunately, no. I was not able to find any USB-C to Micro-USB adapters for sale on the Motorola site, nor was I able to locate any documentation indicating whether such an adapter would solve my problem. I am hoping that other members of these well-populated forums can share their experiences with various adapters and cords. I'm certain I'm not the only one with micro-USB OTG accessories wondering how to get them to work with a Moto Z or other USB-C equipped smartphone.
I'm in the same boat. I ordered an external SD card reader which came with the micro USB connection, so I ordered the adapter for usb-c. So far no luck. Motorola Z force does not recognize the device at all. I plugged the card reader into another Android device with the micro USB connection and it was detected automatically. I'm wondering if the usb-c supplies return power to non-powered devices? Any info would be greatly appreciated!
