    Red face USB Flash Drive for DM800SE clone, Moving plugin from rom to USB, Picons on USB?

    Hi all,

    I have just filled up the flash area on my Dream Box 800 SE and it crashed

    Anyway after deleting some stuff I thought I would put in my spare 8 gig flash drive which I formatted at Fat 32.

    I can see the drive in TSpanel > Device Manager but although it says it have initialised it doesnt seem to. In mount managerit is there but says Mount failed if I mount it. How can I get this working?

    I have managed to see the USB in Dream Box Control Centre but not as a USB. In Tools it says USB not found. But if I go to FTP I can send files to it using the share that TSPanel set up /autofs/sda1

    I am at 90% on the internal memory and want to firstly mount the disk, and then uninstall things like TSpanel and reinstall it to my usb to free up space on the internal memory. How is this done?

    The core reason to get all of this working is to then move Rat's picon folder to the DreamBox. If they are on internal rom they work. If I then move the folder to the /autofs/sda1 then they dissappear.

    Any help on the above would be great!!

    When I did mine I just initialized it, did not need to mount it. Try loading the picon folder to the root of your USB using DCC, afterwards press the pvr button to check it's loaded ok. I didn't use TSPanel at all.

    Hi there. Not sure how you initialise without using TSpanel? For some reason DCC doesn't recognise it as a USB it can see a share that TSpanel ends up creating which must be wrong as the box can't read the icons from here. Is there something I haven't got installed?

    I'm not at home so I can't check but I think to initialize it's menu-system-hdd, you get to hdd and in there you'll find all attached memory devices, follow the instructions(I think it's highlight the device then press red) and you're done. DCC should find it ok, if it doesn't try FileZilla.

    I have Enigma II installed and I cant see any hard disk information or usb from the standard system menus. I can only use TSPanel to see anything. I have tried a 1gig stick just and it is the same. It always mounts it to /autofs/sda1 so the dream box will never find the picons?!?!? Painful
