First off, hello all. (Read - clueless newbie alert!!!)
I've tried searching this forum and the others out there for a solution but can't quite get the right info...
I've got a clone DM800 HD (not sure if its SE or not!?) and decided to connect a USB HDD for occasional recording/playback. Seems like I've opened a can of worms!!
The box recognises the drive but I cannot initialise the drive as I get an error - "Not mounted".
I'm happy to remotely configure our company Linux web
Re: Help needed to mount USB HDD on DreamElite 1.0
Hi again Dibbers,
Thanks for your help.
I've solved it but had to use Telnet...
In case anyone else stumbles upon this thread, has a similar setup and needs help, here's what I ended up doing.
Found Dreambox IP via my router's admin pages, then from Windows - Start - Run and entered "telnet xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx" (where x's = IP address of box)
User name: root
Password: dreambox (in Telnet it doesn't look like anything has been typed on the screen but just press "Enter" and it should log in providing password is still default)
Telnet box then shows: root@dm800:/#
Then enter: mount /dev/sda1 /media/hdd (there's a space after "mount" and "sda1")
My HDD was already formatted (FAT32) although NTFS might have worked too.
You can format your HDD via Telnet but I wont go into details here because I'm a complete noob!
I then checked to see if I could access the HDD by entering: cd media AND THEN: cd hdd
Telnet should then look like: root@dm800:/media/hdd#
If you don't already have a folder on the HDD called "movie", you will need to make one...
Assuming you are in the correct folder/directory as above (media/hdd), you can simply type: mkdir movie
If you then enter: ls (lower case "L" & "S") you should get a list of files & folders on your HDD including one called "movie"!
From what I've read, it looks like the HDD will require mounting every time the box reboots (I leave mine in standby), however, I modified the "etc/fstab" file which will hopefully now mount the drive when the Dreambox boots... yet to test!!
