Install Device Manager then choose the right mounting point...Usualy the first on top of the list....

But maybe that won't work with USB Stick..it is not advised to use this kind of item for recording due to bitrate limitation.

Use fstab to choose a mount point is the most simple approch. Connect to your box via telnet


vi /etc/fstab


and enter your usb device and the mounting point you want.

As example: your usb drive is sda1, you want to mount it at /hdd/usb, your drive is formated with ext4, you would insert this line in the fstab file




/dev/sda1 /hdd/usb ext4 defaults 0 0

after you change the fstab file use "mount -a" to remount the drives. It should work without restart, dont forget to create the mount point you want to use




mkdir /hdd/usb

in my example

I don't know if it works with OpenPLI 2.1, but on 3.0 you can label the usb device "hdd", then it is mounted in /media/hdd.

Also tagged with one or more of these keywords: hdd, usb, mount, dm800
