Mede8er 500X HDD formating
« on: July 26, 2017, 09:09:28 am »
Hi guys

Indeed of help.
I formatted my drive in the mede8er but was taking exceptionally long as the drive was empty. I interrupted the format (i know... dumb move). I even left the formatting to run overnight but still nothing.

I then formatted my drive via my laptop and picks up as a normal external drive. 100%

I plugged the same HDD in my mede8er but it doesn't pick up in the device at all. I tried plugging in a flashdrive and used my SD card but nothing picks up.

The internet radio works fine though so not sure what to do. Browsing the mede8er interface works 100%

You must remove all partitions using a PC, and let the player create what partitions it needs, which it then formats.
