Raspyfi handled multiple USB sticks well, assigning them to ‘usb1’, ‘usb2’ etc. Volumio doesn’t seem to do that. From what I can make out (having experimented a bit), if you put a second USB stick in the second USB port (of the Raspberry Pi B), it overwrites the mounting of the USB stick in the first USB port. Typing ‘mount’ shows both sticks assigned to ‘USB’, but the music from only one shows up in the ‘Browse’ window. I’ve swopped the sticks around to check whether there was a problem with one stick, but the same thing seems to happen. Having two USB sticks in seems to get Volumio confused.
For the time being I’ve copied the music from one stick to my SD card (which is big enough), and assigned that to ‘LOCAL’ in the /var/lib/mpd/music’ folder. However I have had the SD card corrupt on me recently, so I’d prefer not to put my music on there. It’s simpler just to reflash with Volumio only.
I was just wondering if this behaviour in Volumio is by design, and is there a way to get it to handle two USB stcks? Note these are USB sticks, not USB hard-drives.
I searched the forums for an answer. There was one guy asking a similar question, but he didn’t get an answer.
