Can't find USB-disc in XBMC - Falkens - 2012-04-03 12:23

Got my self a aTV gen. 1 and XBMC Eden.

I add a USB disk (2 TB) to USB port and i try to add it to XBMC so I can get hold of all the "files" but it doesn't show in XBMC when I try to add it.

Anyone know or can point to what to do.

BR and thanks

IIRC, a freshly patched sticked ATV1 still needs something set to enable USB. I think it's the "combo"/"smart" installer from NitoTV?

This is correct. See here

Note once you complete these steps and plug in your external HD for the first time, wait like 2-3min. It takes about 2 solid minutes for my 500GB external HD to get mounted. HD must be formatted to HFS+ or FAT32 to be read too.
