  • Lost My USB DRIVE CONNECTION

    I can no longer access my ripped CD library on my i5, only Qobuz albums are available on Roon. Has run fine for many months, have never had connection issues before. I’ve switched drives to my back up but no help.

    Did you mount the drive in the drive mounter?

    Once you do you can mount it in Roon.

          It says device name none. Pick a drive to mount in the drop down.

            Had tried that but nothing found. I noted in my initial post that I get the same result when I switch to my other USB drive.

              What format is your drive? Try exfat. Make sure it's attached to one of the rear USB ports.

                Probably FAT32 but I’m unable to get my win10 PC to recognize it which I don’t understand. I also don’t understand why both my drives are no longer recognized on my i5 when they have been working fine for a year or so (on the rear USB port), I’ve made no changes.

                Can the formatting be changed with files on it ?

                  If your Windows PS no longer sees the drive it been corrupted.

                  You can not change a drive format without wiping the drive.

                  Reformat the drive with exFAT and copy your music files to it. exFAT has a much lower chance of drive corruption then other formats.

                    What would corrupt both drives ? Am I doing something wrong ?

                      Lots of things can corrupt a drive. A power hit is the most common. Also detaching or powering it off while data is being written.
