Thanks for explaining that the network path is only for Samba and Network connections.
I tried disconnecting the HDD and reconnecting but it did not solve the problem.
I have also installed a new image on a different manufacturers micro sd card and have removed the plugins I do not require i.e. Kodi/XMBC, WiFi/Lan, Accesspoint Setup, Jivelite, Bluetooth and DLNA Server. My connection is via Ethernet over the mains using Devolo adaptors. I would also note that the Audiophonics Sabre is part of there RASPDAC unit (not the mini). Currently I only have the power button running but not the display. I am not sure what you mean by ‚removing anything but the HDD‘ The only connections to the RASPDAC unit are ethernet, USB from HDD and incoming power. I have just powered up the RASPDAC and opened up Max2Play interface. Everything is running except HDD is still not recognised. Also checked Samba via Advanced IP Scanner and this shows up as connected. I have also tried two other HDD’s but result is the same although the indicating lights on all of them are operating.
