I am brand new to Volumio so maybe this has been discussed already?
I am assembling a radio for my wood shop using standard off the shelf components with nothing special. (No fancy electronics design nor custom software changes). While waiting for more parts to show up (thanks for such prompt service Amazon - Not - Grrrr!), I decided to try setting up a small USB thumb drive to contain a few CDs.
I followed the instructions from the documentation to the letter but Volumio would absolutely not find my media. I even used the Volumio ripper and stored the data directly on the SD card. But still Volumio would not find it.
I got to thinking and realized one of the first things I did when initially installing was to log into it via ssh and run:
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade
Somehow in the upgrade process, something got overwritten that prevented it from being able to access any locally stored media. I solved the problem easy enough by just reinstalling the SD card and NOT running the update.
Since this caused me a couple hours of frustration trying a myriad of formats for the USB stick to no avail, I thought ya’ll might like to know.
If you are a UN*X nerd that is new to Volumio, forget Volumio is really a Linux device and just use the provided GUI for doing any updates/upgrades!
