How do I get from a Nextbook NXW9QC132 Tablet PC's MicroB USB 2.0 port to a standard size USB B (like is on a Printer)?

The device is not a printer; it takes its power from the tablet (it is actually an SDReceiver).
Do not want to, or need to, ever charge the tablet from its USB port (it has a separate charge connector).

Hy Mike,

If I have got your question right, there are adapters and adapter cables for converting from micro to standard USB- just Google. I have used them and they work OK.

Does the suggested lead not work?.
The suggested lead might work if it includes the magic phrase "OTG" or "On-the-Go" in it's on-line description.

Unfortunately, there are three distinct versions of the lead suggested by Spec.
1. no connection to pin 4. (pin 4 floating)
2. pin 4 grounded to pin 5. (the one that works for me)
3. pin 4 connected to pin5 through a resistor. (I haven't tried that one).

I need the tablet to recognize that my SDR receiver was plugged in. If I use version 1 if the cable (above), the tablet does nothing when the cable is inserted.
