Power up HDDs
#1
Hello, good day. I'm trying to use my pine to setup a simpe nfs server with 3 HDDs. There's not enough power to get even one working so, how do I power up the disks to get them working in the pine? Thank you.

Hey!

I use an external hub to power the HDD I have attached to my pine64. I use this hub: https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B00E...UTF8&psc=1

I am not sure It could handle 3 HDDs tho, but I can assure you it does well with one.

I would recommend a powered hub as well, one with at least one amp per hard drive.  The one linked above would be marginal for three hard drives.  It might work but it might not if all three decided to spin up at the same time.

Since my original post, I now have 2.5" drives attached to the USB hub and haven't had any issues insofar.
