USB attached disk is sporadically unmounted

Unread post by saucier »

I have a Samsung 860 QVO SSD in a QGeeM USB enclosure formatted as exfat, and when connected to my MiSTer, it will mount, and then a short time later will unmount, and then repeat the process. If I look at the kernel log, I see repeated entries like the following:

Any ideas of what the issue might be, or any other place I could look to diagnose this issue?

The issue could likely be insufficient power for the enclosure/drive.

You may need a powered USB hub or drive enclosure with external PSU.

Thanks for your response. I have it attached to a blisster v2, which I have powered via a 2.4 amp power supply. I've tried connecting the blisster to a separate power supply than the rest of the MiSTer (since there is normally a small cable to connect the MiSTer to the blisster, and it still exhibits this issue.

USB Host on DE10-nano has many compatibility problems. It may have problems in specific configs. It may work through one hub but fail through another. Different USB port also may fix problem. Or may not work at all.
It's normal for DE10-nano.

Thanks! Glad to hear that it isn't just me. It hasn't been a huge issue, but I'll play around with it to see if I can work out a more stable connection.
