    I am having a terrible time getting my odroid XU4 with emmc memeory to see USB disks. I have tried NTFS disks and exFAT, directly plugged into the odroid or through a powered USB hub. The behavior is the same no matter what.

    In version 2.41, it won’t see a usb drive as a USB drive. It thinks seems to think it is an unmounted network drive:
    SAMSUNG backup in not mounted (Device /dev/sdb1 with UUID 8A9E715A9E713FAD)

    In version 2.22, it will find it as a USB drive, but lose it if I reboot or switch the USB port. Then it simply won’t find it again. Also in version 2.22 I am unable to expand the filesystem (which I can do in 2.41).

    If I could get this to work I would happily become a supporter of Max2play, but so far it is pretty unworkable. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks Mohammed. Isn’t that version 2.34? I am on 2.41. Is there a newer version someplace?

    Hi Mohammed,

    I am afraid you are mistaken. I did download version 2.34 and then hit the Updat Max2play button of the webinterface under the settings /reboot

    Looking at the top of my screen it says that I am running version 2.41 Odroid XU3. Anyway, it obviously isn’t a version for the raspberry pi since it is running on the odroid.

    Please take the time to carefully read my posting thread…

    Best Wishes!

    And BTW the behavior in 2.34 is undesirably exactly the same as in 2.41 (quoted from above):
    “In version 2.41, it won’t see a usb drive as a USB drive. It thinks seems to think it is an unmounted network drive:
    SAMSUNG backup in not mounted (Device /dev/sdb1 with UUID 8A9E715A9E713FAD)”

    I hit the upgrade button because I thought it might fix the problem…

    Hi pema

    Have you followed these steps, when you setup the USB disks ?
