I’ve searched the forum for this so sorry if it’s been covered.
Is it ok to plug my 2T WD passport drive directly into the USB3 port on the Vero 4k? That’s the way I’m currently connected and it appears to be working ok. Or is the preferred configuration to use a powered USB Hub for powering a single 2T USB hard drive? I can’t find the specs on the Vero 4k USB3 port nor the power requirements of the 2T WD passport Ultra drive.
My RPi3 setup required the external USB Hub. I don’t know yet if that’s what I should be doing with my Vero 4k.
I´m interested in the Vero 4k. I want to use it with an external 2.5 HDD (this don’t need an extra power supply). Right now i’m using this drive with an RP1 in combination with an 2A power supply for the RP1 without any issues (the drive is the only thing i use expect an gpio ir receiver).
Is it ok to use this drive without an extra power supply / powered hub (only powered by the vero 4k usb port and the vero 4k power supply?
You remind me of that. I use this command (RP1 B+). Would it be enough to use an Y-cable in combination with both usb ports? (2x500mA)
OT: i use an old osmc version on my rp1 B+ their it was necessary to use this command to spin up this drive. I tested the current osmc version and the drive spins up fine without this command (is it enabled by default?)
