Cannot get USB storage to work on Intel NUC 8

(Kim Kruse Petersen) #1

No matter what I try in the BIOS on the NUC 8, I cannot make the USB connected disk visible. I have enabled all USB ports.

Anyone with a hint on NUC 8. generation?


Visible where, in Roon over Network? What type of USB disk?

Different USB memory sticks, 5 different. Must the file format always be extFAT, and is this the “normal” fileformat on USB sticks?

We recommend USB drives connected to ROCK be formatted exFAT if you requires compatibility, or EXT4 if you don’t.

ROCK will also work with NTFS ,FAT32, and EXT2/3/4 drives, but if you are starting fresh with USB storage, our recommendation would be to use exFAT.

Fine, I have tried that but nothing shows up in the storage folder or on storage in Roon configuration. I have checked Intel support page to see if a setting in BIOS is wrong, but with no succes.


If this is the variant where you connect to the share form a PC, you can only see the content of connected drives. You can plug the drive in your PC and add a file to the drive there, then plug the drive back in to your ROCK and check the share again.

It still does not show anything in Storage to pick from.

I am happy I have a NAS server working perfectly.
