Success & Failure
I loaded volumio onto a rpi4, installed my music library onto an SSD attached to the RPI4 and using the native volumio hot spot managed to get music out of my speakers all under the perfect control of my android phone. Its perfect for me until this point. In order to modify my library and get it back onto the pi I had to keep removing my SSD and rebooting volumio. I did use the shutdown control but my PC keeps reporting my SSD has a problem and repairs it for me, I do not know how to mount and unmount a drive in volumio because I cannot get a connection from my laptop to my rpi4. I do not have a router or a wired network. I live off my phone and with its hotspot I have wifi throught the house. I have tried every possible way to raise a terminal window on my lap top to tinker with the internal code of volumio but without a connection it is impossible. Volumio recognises my phone hotspot and when I look at the wifi network from my laptop I can see that volumio, my laptop and the hotspot are all working. I have been able to control volumio from my laptop to select & play music. When I tell volumio my wifi and password then I lose connectivity from my spare simless mobile phone which I use as a remote but I retain connectivity from my hot spot mobile phone, then I lose connectivity from my PC. I have reinstalled volumio half a dozen times. Really all I want is to have my laptop connect to my rpi4 then use a terminal window to move files between pi and windows 10 machine. Any help would be appreciated.
