I plan to buy a 512GB micro SD card on which to install the Volumio OS (on Raspberry Pi 4) as well as store the entire music only on the SD card. I think this is the most elegant and neat solution, from many points of view: dimension, power consumption.
The music files will be only written once and after that only reading operations will take place.
Can you advise on the follownig topics:?
- Can you tell me if anyone has this set-up and if there are any inconveniences?
- Is here an issue with indexing maybe 500GB of music in a single location - on the micro SD card?
- How long will the indexing take for maybe around 8000 FLAC songs?
- Considering 500GB is quite a lot of data, what is the preffered copying method? copy over network in Volumio-Internal network location OR insert the micro SD card (with the already installed VOlumio OS) in a Linux computer and copy the music files in a certain location on it?
Thank you very much in advance, guys!!
I mounted the whole setup in an old router case:
The SSDs heat-up quite a lot and I want to replace all of them with just the microSD card.
