Hi Christoph, thanks for the reply. I may try switching to an externally powered drive, but it was my understanding that the pi3 had enough power on the USB ports to handle a portable drive that doesn’t have external power. I’ve also read that the max_usb_current=1 setting has no effect on the pi3, as it already provides 1.2A by default. (

You don’t think it’s just because there’s nearly 100,000 tracks in my library?
