[SOLVED] Hard drive not showing up in device tab

I am using an external hard drive  to hold and sort all my tunes. and i know most people don't export there music back to the same hard drive that they use with rekordbox but i am  not using pro link yet  and don't  have another drive. i know in previous versions you could send all your exported songs back to the same drive, has that changed in the new update. and  if so dose that mean i don't have to export the tracks if i am using the same drive that i sort all my tunes with. can i just plug rite into the cdjs or what . or is it a formatting issue. Thanks

@Essence1122 > Is your external drive connected by FireWire or USB3?  Or perhaps formatted in NTFS?

@dance2mix > Do either of those devices have multiple partitions or security software installed?  Are you able to browse the drive through the file explorer?

Not to intrude, but I'm having the same issues. I have a 250GB external HD and I reformatted it thinking it was a problem with the formatting. I formatted in FAT32, it's a clean drive now with nothing on it and still Rekhord Box isn't able to see it. My comp and other comps see it just fine.

@ Pulse ~ No other partitions and I used WIndows Partition Manager to do the partition. Currently using WIndows 7 Ultimate 64 bit. It reads flash drives just fine and my phone which has a 64GB mem card, but it just won't see my portable HD.

@DJ Herman Dan, "No other partitions and I used WIndows Partition Manager to do the partition"

Do you mean the Disk Management utility built into Windows?  It can't create FAT32 partitions greater than 32GB, so if you're using that to format a 500GB drive, chances are it's formatted it as NTFS.

I too am having this issue.

I can get the HD to show up maybe once in a blue moon, but for the most part it never shows up, although my USB flash drive does every time perfectly.

I am running Mac OS 10.7, drive is connected by USB and is formatted to FAT 32.  Drive was formatted using Mac OS X's Disk Utility.

 

Thanks.

@disco > Yes; don't use Windows to format it and you can have a FAT32 drive of any size.

Resurrecting an old thread.. I've just today had this error occur with:

Macbook-Retina running 10.10.2 OSX. Rekordbox 3.2.0 rev 3059-4167

I've been using a 2TB external hard-drive for about 2 years now without a hitch, however after updating RB to 3.2.0 this HDD doesn't show up in the RB device list - even though I can see and use it perfectly in Finder etc. Should I roll back to 3.1??

What is the make / model of the drive? How is it connected to the computer?

The drive is a Western Digital "My Passport" WDBKKF0020BSL. I plug it into the Mac directly via USB

FYI - I rolled rekordbox back to V3.1 and the HDD was visible again - seems to be a glitch within V3.2

@richcur > Could you please try the following:

  1. Launch Terminal in the Utilities below the Applications on Mac. 
  2. Type "diskutil list" in the field. 
  3. Copy the result shown there and paste it here.

This issue should be resolved in 3.2.1 - I'm marking this thread as solved; should you still have the problem or require further assistance, please start a new topic and link to this thread, and I'll be happy to help you.
