    SSD drive not detected?

    I have a spare ssd drive that I want to attach directly to my touch. Its a 256gb Crucial 2.5 inch drive, formatted in ext3. However the touch won't detect it at all.
    I have tried with an separate external power supply too and its still not detected.

    Usually I attach a 3.5gb 1tb drive (not ssd, ntfs) and have no trouble.

    Any ideas?

    You dont want to attach a drive directly to Touch , the performance is appaling get a raspi to run the server on .

    Thanks, fat32 seems to work (only with external power though). Maybe I'll get around to trying a raspi server when my kids are in college....

    Doesn't surprise me, the SBT power output on the USB port is pretty poor.. and SSD are actually quite bad for blowing the power budget during heavy write or garbage collection workloads.

    Agreed. The sound quality sucks. A portable CD player would probably sound better.

    I meant the LMS performance Touh sounds like usual just like when you using LMS on something else.
    If you ever get it to work it will probably crash while trying to scan menus will be very slow , no web UI no plugins.
    Imagine it will be slow with the smartphone apps too ?

    You probably save time by going the RPI3 route directly for your server needs compared to the time spent fiddling with the Touchs built in server ( which never should have been there imho as it tempts folks to use it , its such an aluring concept for some users , its a trap )

    Don't we have an "audiophile" section for claims like this?

    Why bother starting such a thread there? It'll turn into a total bitch-fest. (Unless the conversation switches to cars, then everyone will love each other)
