I've put a 500gb hard drive in my Vu+ Duo (don't think its a clone). I can initialize the hard drive and record on it fine, but whenever the power is switched off to the box, it no longer see it and has to be initialized again, losing all the data. When I try to mount it, its not seen. I'm running Blackhole 126.96.36.199. Help please, I'm new to this and so need step by step help
Sorry mate neither link any good, this is an internal hard drive not usb. Any more suggestions, I've formatted it again on my pc fat32 and still doesn't show in mountpoints.
Don't know if it helps you mate, but I had all kinds of issues with mounts (to both HDD and USB) being dropped.
They were there one day then the next day the internal flash was the only thing my box would see.
Frustrated the h*ll out of me as crossepgs would not update.
Tried all kind of things : whiped box, installed swapfile to take avail memory out of the equation - all kinds of stuff, to no avail.
I was also on a recent'ish copy of BH.
In the end I ditched BH and went to VIX OE3.0. All the mount issues went away.
If I was you and you are getting nowhere, it would be worth taking a backup and then loading a diff image.
You can always go back to your current image if you are not happy.
You need to know whether its a clone or not, as that will limit what you can load on it.
