    I recently got a USB c plus USB SanDisk drive and apparently it doesn't detect my OnePlus 6...does it work on other phone?

    Try going to your phone's system settings, then Advanced (near the bottom), and enabling OTG storage. Once that is enabled your phone should detect the Sandisk drive.

    The setting is automatically disabled when there hasn't been a USB drive connected for ten minutes.

    Is it USB 3.0? OnePlus is only compatible with USB 2.0 since dash™ charging...er I mean their fast charging uses some of the connectors that would be otherwise used for the USB 3.0 protocol.

    USB 3.x is backwards compatible with USB 2.x and USB1.x so that wouldn't stop it being detected. I have used a USB 3.0 drive on my OP5.
