Now they are not recognized on gt king 2 and u22xj…
No pop up "hdd connected " in coreelec …
The hdd have only mkv …recognized on my old windows 10 and the new windows 11 pc …
I try to find out what is the problem, its working perfect before …
I also try external hdd usb 3 without power plug on the boxes ,it works

Is the problem that i have connect the 2 External hdd to the new windows 11 pc and this change anything on hdd so its not recognized anymore with CE ???

I am realy confused and dont find what is the problem ,maybe someone can help me ?

Reboot CoreELEC, attach drive and then post logs.

Enabe debug logging in settings/system.

Submit log :upload latest kodi log and configs ,and view the short url

Failed to paste log files ,try again …

In ssh console after reboot and attach the drive type this two commands

dmesg | paste
journalctl -l | paste

I connect with putty…how to share all the lines here ? Screenshot?

Each command should give you one URL.

Wait, this is CE21: enable terminal sharing and I will connect to device myself.


Enable terminal sharing

I think you have too big drive :slight_smile:

Do you even has any partition on it?

And can you attach drive back on?

I use external 4x hdd box usb 3 ,with power plug
2x 8to (using before on u22xj and gt king 2 with ce ,no problem )
New hdd 18 to that i added …
For the moment no hdd is recognized in CE
The 2x8to working perfect before …i try 1x 8to alone in the box …not recognized…

As you can see above it is recognized but there is no partition on it. At least it looks like that. Make a partition and it should work. Or attach it and I will make it.

Or even better: make 2 partitions. I think I saw some similar error some time back.

Sadly I don’t have such a big drive to play with it :joy:

No partition …hmmmm
The 18to (ntfs) have just one folder ,full of mkv ,same for the others …they work perfect on windows 10/11/kodi
The 2x8to are working before …
I have all hdd double (x2)
Maybe i format one of each again (ntfs) and transfert the folder …connect to CE
I dont use nass ,i prefere use 2x external hdd box (max 4x 18to)
Never stop running system :grin:
I change pc
Install new ce on all boxes
And the problems begin :rofl:

Thank you peter ,cool that you can check yourself in the box ,
I go "restart/ format " all hdd and try again …

I just flash the gt king 2 to android …format the 18tb hdd with windows 11,ntfs and connect them to gt king 2 , the hdd apears and i select use as external storage ,android format the hdd…
I connect the hdd to windows, it shows as 1 hdd ,now i have lot of folders on the hdd :

I deleate them all …
I install CE21 again on gt king 2 ,connect the 18tb hdd …and now it apears in CE
Crazy !
What can i do ? Did i must connect all hdd to android before i can use with ce ?
After check the difference …the 18tb hd was transforme to EXFAT and it works …so i format the 2 hdd to exfat …

Picture from ce21 ,the 18tb and the 8tb hdd work .
Is this /dev/mapper/dynapart system a -android
/dev /mapper/dynapart vendor a- android
normal ?
Possible to deleate this things ?

No one knows exactly what did you do with a drives … only you. Obviously you now did something else. Looks like it was formatted in Android having real partition (previously probably was not there).
/dev/mapper/dynapart* is fine and needed to work.
