help needed - unable to create media library   

Postby Calredon » Sat May 08, 2010 10:22 am

Hi,

i have a little problem here. I bought a WD HD Live an installed the latest version of wdlxtv (0.4.2.0).
Everything is workin fine, thank you for that - it ist great!

But:

When i plug in my external harddrive (NTFS) it starts to scan the whole drive. While it is scanning, i could use mediaserver functions such as last played, searching etc.

After scanning (it takes a few minutes), i got the following message:

"unable to create media library. Please check your storage settings"

The HD is mounted as rw, if i log in via telnet or ssh i can write on the usb disk.

Can anybody give me a hint where to start searching for the issue?

Grettings

Ok, problem solved: The NTFS System was the issue.
It took about 3 hours to move all data away from the usb disk, after that i formatted it as ext3, another 3 hours later all data were moved back. Now its up and running.

I had the same problem. FAT32 was the problem. I did as you have but formated to NTSF. That fixed my problem.

I also had this problem. In my case the reason was the (normally not visible) $RECYCLE.BIN folder which has been created by my Windows.
When I delete files from my usb-drive, the $RECYCLE.BIN folder grows up. So after a time the usb-drive has had less than 5% of disk space left.
As the wdtv needs approximately 5% free disk space of the partition to create the library, it caused the error message "unable to create media library".

Solution: From time to time I have to delete the $RECYCLE.BIN folder.

Notice: On my ext3 partition I certainly don't have this problem as ext3 is not a known file system for Windows.
