Description of Issue

I suddenly lost access to the music on the USB drive that is connected to the core. Strangely enough if I connect the USB drive to another computer (Windows 11) the drive is fully functional and readable.

The error message underneath the drive () info in the storage screen says “This drive is not available. Check the drive or ‘edit this folder’ if it’s been moved.”

Appreciate any advise where to take it from here. Nothing has changed in the set-up, connections etc. Thanks, Rene

Is the drive formatted as NTFS? If so, then this is probably the cause of the issue. Have a read of this post from @Suedkiez


Hi Geoff, thanks for that! I did the chkdsk /f on a windows machine and it worked. Happy days. Need to see if I can reformat the drive to exfat… Thanks, Rene
