I have a raspberry B2 + hifiberry Amp+ setup and I have installed max2play on it in order to have a LMS + a Squeezebox running.
Everything went fine and work just good when I plug in a normal USB drive (quite old already).
In order to save space and cable I have bought an SD Card with 64 Gb (exFat System) that I plug into an mini USB adapter. (you know the little 1cm thing that you can plug into an USB slot …)
Well I can not detect this card yet. I log in into ssh, first as pi, then as root, and I have installed exfat packages … it didn’t change anything.
Do you have any idea how I could access this data storage from my LMS Directly (as with the old USB storage disk ?)
Thanks a lot !15. July 2016 at 23:46 #21626
After quite a lot of different trials, I found the solution. So for others to have it easier, here how I did.
Solution is quite easy :
– log in through ssh
— first as pi user, raspberry pwd
— then as root, max2play pwd
– knowing my SDXC Card was exFat, I installed the necessary debian packages : apt-get install exfat-fuse exfat-utils
– I did verify if I could list my device with lsusb. and yes it was there.
– I verified what was mounted cat /etc/fstab (boot) and cat /etc/mtab (now). and it wasn’t mounted.
– I listed the different devices on the system (I had sda sda1 sdb sdc ; I knew what was sdb, and sdc was not possible to mount xD)
– (don’t forget to create your mount directory here for me I did : mkdir /media/exfat)
– So I mounted the sda1 partition : mount -t exfat /dev/sda1 /media/exfat
– I then used the max2play interface to register this usb mountpoint as to be mounted automatically.
this article was very usefull http://www.howtogeek.com/235655/how-to-mount-and-use-an-exfat-drive-on-linux/
NB : I suggest to your dear max2play team to include fuse packages by default. ExFat SD Cards are no longer “weird” 😉
