- Turn on my pi and mount the external hard drive using the 'mount' command.
- Download files to the hard drive with no issues.
- Watch videos off the hard drive with no issues.
I can use the hard drive with no issues for hours. However, if I leave or let the pi go inactive for more then, say, 30 min or so, the hard drive disconnects from the mount point and I get I/O errors accross the board and then have to umount and re-mount the disk to use it. Usually the disk has re-connected to a different path.
At first I thought it was power issues. But the drive itself has it's own power adapter and I'm plugging the USB drive into a powered USB hub to first then into the pi. There are no other USB devices connected.
Code: Select all
/dev/sda1 to /dev/sdb1
Is this caused by the pi or the drive itself going into a "sleep" mode or something?
