Can anyone confirm if this possible. I’d my Pi 2 to play music files direct from a large capacity SD card. Obviously there is only one SD card slot on the Pi, so can I download Volumio onto the same card that holds my music files and will the Pi then be able to render music using Volumio?
t worked for me. You have to expand your installation on the microsd manually, the support for it in raspi-config is broken. (with raspian its fine). Everything works fine in my case with a hifiberry digi +, i can play from Usb and every other unneeded source - except the for me only neccesary thing: play files from local microsd. There is no playlist. Also a symlink as described in: [raspyfi.com/forum/raspyfi-in ... i-sd-card/](http://www.raspyfi.com/forum/raspyfi-install-and-troubleshooting/using-music-files-directly-from-local-sd-card-raspyfi-sd-card/) didnt help.
I went back to raspian -playing the files from the microsd via mplayer + X-Gui.
I wonder if an easy fix would be to use a card reader plugged into one of the USB ports? My interest is academic at this point, just looking forward to a time when you can buy 500GB SD cards. Won’t be that far in th future I reckon.
local playback from the sdcard is now working.
With this hint from the FAQ:
Version 1.5 & 1.55
There is a small bug that the newly created link doesn’t show in the browse tab.
Workaround: create a symlink in one of the existing locations.
I set a new symbolic link inside the /WEBRADIO directory to the directory which contains my flac-files
and moved the webradio links into another (sub)directory.
To your question:
An xyz-sdcard in an usb-stick-like adapter should behave as any usbstick.
I`ll try this on Tuesday when i will receive a new 128 Gbyte microsd card.
