Yes before that I’ll wait to see if anyone know how to connect it directly to the PC surely there must be way?
CoreELEC is a media center OS, it’s not really designed for managing storage.
You can do it over SSH via the command line, as vpeter has suggested, but there is no GUI way of doing it from CE. Maybe from Android, but I’m not sure.
Connecting the drives to your PC, would be the simplest way for you to do it.
If you open one SSH session to your device I can give you few commands to do the job.
Don’t know which OS you can install on your GS-King, but I know that on Android you need root access to do that.
If you can install a Linux distribution then it’s done with SSH commands; possibly also with CoreElec as @vpeter suggests. He can walk you through necessary steps…
Yes please, I have root and the android terminal app so I can try that, thanks
We can try, what’s the steps, thanks
Thanks guys I did;
SSH into coreelec, use ntfslabel to change name as is was an NTFS drive.
Thanks for your input and suggestions couldn’t have done it without it.
Still want to know how to connect it to PC but I will endeavor and try and find out.
If your just looking to transfee files on the hdd to and from your pc, try Filezilla on windows. Type in CE’s ip address and login with ‘root’ and password is ‘coreelec’ then access the ‘media’ folder and your hdd is in there.
Thanks, although that is too slow for copying plus want an offline straight connection. It should be possible as it has an otg connection but my USB male to male does nothing when I try.
Which GPIO pin is the fan controlled from ?
I am interested in adding it to the mainline kernel If I can. As fan running 24x7 is not good and I feel the fan is audible in a quiet room.
I will test on mainline kernel.
I have CoreELEC installed on GS King X. It works well, on the other hand, I cannot write data remotely on the HDD hard disk that I inserted in the box. I can only read the data.
I have this error message: this disk is write-protected.
Should I format the disk from the Beelink and transfer the data afterwards?
Your HDD should be listed in the samba shares.
Like this example with a USB memory:
CoreELEC:~ # smbclient -U coreelec -L localhost Enter WORKGROUP\coreelec's password: Sharename Type Comment --------- ---- ------- Update Disk Videos Disk Music Disk TV Shows Disk Recordings Disk Downloads Disk Pictures Disk Emulators Disk Configfiles Disk Userdata Disk Screenshots Disk Logfiles Disk Backup Disk Picons Disk Addons Disk sda-usb-General_UDisk-0: Disk IPC$ IPC IPC Service (CoreELEC) SMB1 disabled -- no workgroup available
So the USB memory is the folder
Maybe your HDD do not have any partition on it?
Run in a SSH connection
dmesg | paste and the command above
smbclient -U coreelec -L localhost with the password
coreelec and post your results.
It shows up in the file manager of Kodi:
If this disk was unplugged from windows PC then possible it should be correctly shutdown first.
Yes it appears in Kodi.
I can read the data on it from other devices.
However, I can’t write on it.
Reboot and try to write some file. Then run this 2 commands and post url you get.
dmesg | paste journalctl -l | paste
I get these 2 URLs:
The disk contains an unclean file system (0, 0). Metadata kept in Windows cache, refused to mount. Falling back to read-only mount because the NTFS partition is in an unsafe state. Please resume and shutdown Windows fully (no hibernation or fast restarting.)
I think you need to put disk back to Windows and check disk there. After that it will work.
But if you will use this disk only on GS-King X then it would be better to format it to EXT4.
I finally formatted in EXT4. It works well.
