Odroid HC1 does not see Sata drive

Post by qxotic »

Installed on Odroid HC1. The sata drive does not show at all when running lsblk, no sda under /dev

Does the drive have to have a certain format prior to connection to be seen?

I've done searches but can't find anyone having this trouble with a normal SSD. I've tried a couple of different drives each approx. 250GB.

What am I missing?

Plan to use it with dietpi running motioneye for security cameras.

Hi,

did you tried using a normal USB stick. Will this show up?

As well you could check kernel messages using dmesg | grep -i usb, to verify if you SSD is detected. If a drive is detected, you should see following

Code: Select all

root@DietPi3:~# dmesg | grep -i usb
...
[    3.174821] usb 1-1.2: new high-speed USB device number 4 using dwc_otg

I didn't see any usb mass storage from the command.

I tested the power supply has the right voltage, but suspect it may not be providing enough amps.. even though it is rated at 4. I've ordered a beefier one rated at 6 amps, it won't be here until next week to try out.

Will wait until then to try again, unless someone spots something from the below code.

Thank you.

hmm your system is not detecting the drive at all. No chance for DietPi at this stage to get it mounted. Could be an issue with the USB port or the drive themselves. Hard to say. Did you test with an usb stick? is this working?

Sorry I forgot to answer about using a usb thumb drive, it did show/work. I did find a few references online where the odroid HC1 didn't see the sata drive due to not enough current from the power supply, so i ordered a beefier one just in case that is the cause. I have also tried an ubuntu server install and it didn't show on it either.. so must either be a weak power supply or a bad HC1... I'm hoping it's the power supply. I'll update next week when I get the new one in to test it out. It does not appear to be a DietPi issue, but want to follow up in case anyone else in the future has the same trouble.

usually we recommend to use external drives with own power supply to avoid issues if the usb port is not able to provide enough power.

SOLVED Odroid HC1 is defective

Post by qxotic »

The HC1 is defective. After getting a second one I quickly noticed it has a Sata indicator led... comes on when power is applied to the new one, never comes on on the defective one. So if anyone is wondering, the led is near the sata connector between the power and data portions of the connector. It should come on anytime power is applied to the board, regardless of whether a sata drive is attached or not. It stays on solid green on my new board with the drive connected.
