Re: I must replug usb device to be visible

Terribly sorry to resurrect an old thread, but I'm having the same problem: USB hub and devices connected to it are no longer visible in lsusb or dmesg after RPi reboot. Only solution after reboot is to power-cycle USB hub and unplug/plug it into RPi . Any followup from OP or possible solutions emer...

Re: USB Hub and Clicking HDD

Sorry to resurrect an old thread, but here's an update with good news. I tried the USB Y cable and that worked fine with no problems, so that may be a solution if you're having the same problem. However, as I have more drives connected, the Y cable would take up too many ports, so I bought this D-li...

Re: input / output error

HDD having no issues with other devices means nothing. Mine HDD too worked well on PC and on raspberry while running films etc. But have issues while writing. I suggest to download and run Hard Disk Sentinel (free try version) to check the Hdd. It is a brand new drive that presented exactly the sam...

Re: input / output error

I've been having the same issue for a while, which I posted here . It works well for a while and then I get I/O errors like you have mentioned. Not sure if it's inactivity that's causing this problem, as I set up cron to create a 5 MB file every minute to see if this would still happen, and it did, ...

Re: USB Hub and Clicking HDD

Ah I see... At first I was considering getting a new power supply, but I figured it might be the hub's fault, so I was thinking of getting a new hub altogether, do you think that could potentially solve things, or might this not be hub related? I should mention that any drive I have connected to the...

Re: USB Hub and Clicking HDD

So before it would take a week for it to give me I/O errors, now it's doing it everyday, and to fix it I have power everything down and up again. It seems like the external drive is powering down and then not back up again, like you said @jdb, and in one of your posts I read in the forum. Sometimes ...

Re: USB Hub and Clicking HDD

Are there diagnostics tools I could install to do that, or would I need some sort of device? Thanks!

Re: USB Hub and Clicking HDD

It does not back-feed power, and the RPi turns off when I unplug it; the hub is advertised as being able to power the pi, though, but I did not use it that way.

Re: USB Hub and Clicking HDD

Yeah, the USB hub and the RPi both have their own plug. I was considering it may be the USB hub causing the problems, but I don't see how that might happen some time afterwards, instead of right away.

Re: USB Hub and Clicking HDD

Just an update — new drive was giving input/output errors after a while too... Now I have a bad fstab and RPi won't boot again, but the extFS trial I had for mounting ext4 partitions on my Mac is expired, so there's no way to fix it without restoring from a backup. #frustration #hashtags Should I gi...

Re: USB Hub and Clicking HDD

@andrum99: That does sound very similar, thanks for your input. I can only assume that the same case could potentially happen with another HDD in the same enclosure. Can a Y cable be used with any device to provide extra power if needed, or can it only be used for specified devices? My external HDD ...

Re: USB Hub and Clicking HDD

@iinnovations: That's true, so I've recovered all the data and ordered a new HDD, but was wondering if my new HDD would suffer the same fate. Also, mysteriously the clicking does not happen when it is connected with my computer for some reason. @GTR2Fan: That's a good point, but this is the drive I ...

USB Hub and Clicking HDD

Hello everyone, I recently set up a couple of hard drives on my RPi and it was all well for a week or so, till a couple of days ago one of the drives started clicking. I realized this might mean the drive is failing, and I started getting I/O errors anyway. I tried rebooting but somehow RPi would ha...

Re: SSH over direct ethernet connection

I had an extra line, but removed it to match your cmdline.txt exactly and I still get the same results. I should also mention that all other interfaces are down while I'm connected with the RPi. Maybe I'm configuring my computer wrong. Thanks! EDIT: My bad, I misunderstood that the ip= line had to b...

Re: SSH over direct ethernet connection

Hey, thanks for the reply! I do have access to the SD card, and I added the line to the cmdline.txt file with the same addresses you specified. Then I changed my computer to 192.168.1.100, netmask 255.255.255.0, and gateway 192.168.1.1. However, when I connect the two and boot up the RPi, I get the ...

SSH over direct ethernet connection

Hey, so here's the deal: I no longer have access to a monitor, but I'd like to SSH to it over a direct ethernet connection from my computer to the Raspberry Pi. I've checked that the RPi boots fine and SSH is running. I've read quite a few threads on this topic, but all of them say that the RPi has ...
