    Hullo,
    I’ve just switched from OpenElec to max2play so that I can use the player as a Squeezebox when I’m not watching movies.
    When I ran OpenElec, I stored my Kodi preferences on an external USB stick, to make upgrading it easier.
    I was wondering if it would be possible to do the same thing – that is use the same USB stick – on this new installation.
    The guide for using the external USB stick is here:
    http://kodi.wiki/view/HOW-TO:Install_XBMC_on_Raspberry_Pi_with_USB_drive
    If I were to follow this guide, should I replace the values in the cmdline.txt with the ones on the wiki above? Or should I selectively choose just the mounting ones? Or none of the above, as it would stuff up the max2play install? Do you foresee them causing any problems?

    Alternatively, should I just copy my prefs/movie database over to the new Kodi installation? Is there a way to do this?

    Many thanks for your help – I appreciate it.

    Hi jademonkee,
    Usually, every memory is recognized automatically if connect at the start of the device. You can then access the filesystem through the path /media/usb. You can find details on that explanation on the “Filesystem Mount” tab in the Max2Play web interface.
    The Kodi settings are at /home/pi/.kodi on the Raspberry and /home/odroid/.kodi on the ODROIDs. To edit or save you can create a Samba share at /home/pi. With that, any pc in the network can access this folder.
    Details on Samba shares can also be found under the Filesystem Mount tab in the web interface.
