    No that did not help Mario.

    Hello Mario

    Thanks for this. I found the filew and added the line which you suggested to the END of ythe filew. So the file is as below. Is this correct?

    # interfaces(5) file used by ifup(8) and ifdown(8)
    auto lo
    iface lo inet loopback

    #auto eth0 # managed by ifplugd
    iface eth0 inet static
    #hwaddress ether 1a:64:b6:bf:36:37

    #allow-hotplug wlan0
    #auto wlan0
    #iface wlan0 inet dhcp
    #pre-up wpa_supplicant -B w -D wext -i wlan0 -c /opt/max2play/wpa_supplicant.conf
    #post-down killall -q wpa_supplicant
    allow-hotplug eth0

    Hi. Yes problem is still woth me. I am using V2.54 which I believe is a „buster“ image. How do I add „allow-hotplug eth0 to the following file: /etc/network/interfaces“ via the web interface? Or is there some other means to login to the pi runnig max2play?

    Thanks for your reply. What does the „light“ version actually do?

    So that is not what you meant by „Do you have the option of connecting the Pi directly to a „normal“ socket for a longer period of time“?

    In any case, the UPS is not the cause. I have had the pi in several different scenarios (without UPS, on UPS#1 which has my CCTV NVR connected and on UPS#2 which has my synology NAS connected) and the SD card failure has occurred in each of these scenarios.

    So, what indeed do you mean by „Do you have the option of connecting the Pi directly to a „normal“ socket for a longer period of time“

    When you say test a normal power connection, do you mean plug my pi into a non-ups outlet? Or do you mean something else?

    What do you mean by a „longer period of time“?

    Hi Mario. OK it’s pretty simple. Each time I have replaced the SD card I have done this

    1. Download latest image from your website
    2. Burn to SD card using Win32 disk imager, following your instructions
    3. Install LMS from the max2play embedded web page „Squeezebox Server Start Installation“
    4. Mount the USB drive in max 2play using „external drives on max2play – mountpoints for USB storage“ (my music is on a USB stick plugged into the pi)
    5. Configure LMS to point to the mounted external USB stick using LMS web management interface. Then have LMS rescan (and build) my music library
    6. Install „BBC sounds“ plugin in LMS
    7. Mount the USB volume in max2play so it can be accessed from my LAN using „sambashares on Max2play – setup network share paths“

    …that is all. Nothing else

    Thanks for your reply.
    To answer your questions. I did not install any plugins – only LMS (the latest 7.9 version).
    I don’t have another pi unfortunately. And would prefer not to buy one as I already have used 4 sd cards as well as paying the licensing for max2play.

    Do other users have such a high failure rate of SD cards? I have now encountered this problem 3 times in just over 1 year. The last time (before 2 days ago) was only 3 months ago. Such a rate of attrition is not sustainable for me.
