    Where do you store your Music and LMS Database when using PiCorePlayer as LMS Server?

    What is the preferred method of storage for the LMS database and the music when using PiCorePlayer as an LMS server and why and which one?

    SD card?

    external 2.5 hdd?

    external 3.5 hdd?

    SDD drive?

    NAS?

    I might change my setup - at the moment I am using an external 2.5 2 TB LaCie hdd.

    Any thoughts?

    My setup (been this for about 18 months now):
    Music: NAS, mounted using SMB
    Data/Cache: SD card

    • SD card? -> to small / expensive
    • external 2.5 hdd? -> ;-)
    • external 3.5 hdd? -> cheaper as 2.5 but more bulky and you need 12V and a lot more cables
    • SDD drive? -> too fast to expensive
    • NAS? -> for the backups


    It all depends on you...

    Get a small device, that you can take @ take somewhere in a small nice case - use a 2.5 external HD.
    Silence is golden and you cant get rid of your money -> 2.5 SSD
    Big heavy Library with billions of trillions -> 3.5" cause you never find a 10TB 2.5 HDD
