I’m running OSMC on a Raspberry Pi 3+ and I’m having an issue mounting a couple of external USB hard drives.
Both are 2.5" HDs, one 250GB and the other is 1TB, whose SATA bridge card went bad. I took them out of their cases, removed the SATA bridge card and got a USB/SATA cable to use with those drives. The cable HD combination works on my iMac and Linux laptop just fine. When I plug them into the RPi running OSMC they mount for a moment then eject, mount again eject, mount again eject…and this keep repeating with the drives making a clicking sound.
All the other external HD drives I have work. It’s just the two that I’m using the USB/SATA cable with that are having this problem.
Any idea what the issue may be?
