    Hello,
    I plug a USB external drive in Original cubox (armada). This hard drive is rewcognized and works fine in a windows PC.
    So, in cubox I expecting working too.. but it is not mounted.

    This is the ouuout of lsusb:

    root(at)geexbox:/dev# lsusb
    Bus 002 Device 003: ID 04e8:6123 Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd
    Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
    Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub

    The disk is the first one, Samsung.

    but /mnt folser is empty (also /media folder yet).

    So, I see in dmesg:

    root(at)geexbox:/media# dmesg | grep usb
    usbcore: registered new interface driver usbfs
    usbcore: registered new interface driver hub
    usbcore: registered new device driver usb
    usbcore: registered new interface driver cdc_wdm

    usbcore: registered new interface driver synaptics_usb

    usb 2-1: new high-speed USB device number 3 using orion-ehci
    scsi2 : usb-storage 2-1:1.0
    usbcore: registered new interface driver uas

    is not what I expecting…

    Also, this are /dev contents:

    root(at)geexbox:/dev# ls

    No, USB drive found… in this list I recognize only mmcblk0/mmcblk0p1 and sda/sda1, not external drive.

    Fuse is installed :`
    root(at)geexbox:/dev# opkg install fuse
    Package fuse (2.9.4-2) installed in root is up to date.`

    I need to install other package?

    Could you help me ?

    Is it a key or a disk ?
    if it’s a disk, did you attach an external power supply ? (or an usb hub with external power supply)

    No, USB drive found… in this list I recognize only mmcblk0/mmcblk0p1 and sda/sda1, not external drive.

    I would think that sda is your external drive. I don’t know why it is not mounted automatically. What happens if you try to mount /dev/sda1 manually? Does it auto-mount on your CuBox-i? What’s the volume label of the partition?

    I think Rudi guessed!
    This is the result I got mounting manually:

    root@geexbox:/dev# mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/
    mount: unknown filesystem type ‘exfat’

    Now the questions:
    Could I read exfat in Geexbox?
    If not, I can convert filesystem type to someone readable from geexbox?

    Sure,
    opkg install fuse-exfat

    then reboot

    Package installation was good.
    Mounting manually it reply:

    root@geexbox:/mnt# mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/
    FUSE exfat 1.0.0
    WARN: volume was not unmounted cleanly.

    It appears to be mounted fine. I see disk on /media folder.
