USB OTG ("On The Go") is a standard for portable devices operating as a USB
"host" rather than a USB "device". A USB "host" means it can transfer files
FROM a USB "device". So the USB OTG port enables you to connect your H340
to another USB *device* (e.g. another mp3 player), to transfer files from it
onto your H340, using just your H340. Whereas the the USB 2.0 port is for
connecting your H340 to a USB *host* (such as a PC).

Basically the host controls the file transfer. If you use the OTG port,
your H340 controls the file transfer (you use the H340 to select files to
copy onto the H340 itself). If you use the regular port, then whatever you
plug into that port controls the file transfer (e.g. PC)
