Re attaching deleted device id storage
« on: January 19, 2009, 10:39:59 pm »
I added a Freecom USB drive to my hybrid system. When detected I told the system to put the MCE file structure. There is one directory but I do not see any other folders if I look through the KDE desktop. When ripping a CD a get the option to use the disk but the ripping fails.

Do I need to do more before I can use the drive. I looked at this page on the wiki but it is not clear to me:
http://wiki.linuxmce.org/index.php/Storage_Devices

In the router I find the following error:
opendir1 /mnt/device/34/public/data/audio/ failed: No such file or directory

I quess It did not create the directory structure. Can I recreate it with the command and if that fails can I just copy the structure from the internal disk ?

I did not format it at all it just came out of the box. It is one of the power adapter free ones with software. Could it be that I first have to remove that. In what should I format it.

Maybe first should I remove it from my system before I unplug ?

Interesting happening. After a reboot it looks that the system suddenly got busy on the external disk and created the file structure. Is it normal that you need a reboot for this to happen ?

I finally got the drive formatted based on the method described on the wiki. I wanted to recreate the folder structure. Probably a stupid way but I removed the device of my external disk in the admin website. I hoped that it would rediscover the drive and ask me to create the directory structure.

Well certainly this is not happening. Is there a procedure to get the disk used by LinuxMCE again ?

Yes thats the one I also been able to delete the one device by using its ip-address  in as a parameter  in the query.


don't think it matters  either way.
