eSata Ocz Throttle ..???

  • I inserted a eSata memory stick (8GB) it is a OCZ Throttle drive.
    The DM500HD does not see the drive.
    there is already a /Media/HDD in flash - which I assume is a RAM drive.


    How do I get the DM to see the eSata drive and then format it??

  • hi!


    the dm500hd has no esatap port, which is needed by the stick.

  • So the DM500HD, is really nice in power consume, but when you want to connect a device in it, you must use external power....lolololol


    Dreambox DM500HD......is a loser!!

  • you can give him the p(ower) via the USB Plug on the other end with a simply mobile phone charger with USB Plug.

    Edited once, last by gutemine ().

  • power off your box, plug in esata - power on your box - no esata -> last chance: all power on leave an reboot your box compleatly


    dreambox boot to fast, esata dont time to mount

  • is it worth trying:-
    mkfs.ext3 /dev/ide/host0/bus0/target0/lun0/part1

  • Abenteuerliches Englisch :oooh:, aber mit etwas Phantasie ... ;)

  • Schade, ich hatte extra ein Smilie für Dich entworfen ... das will aber nicht angezeigt werden .... :rolleyes:

  • OK the box now sees the drive (formatted NTFS)
    Initialize harddisk - error 'unable to initialize harddisk. Error: creating partition failed.'

    gutemine, du meinst, wir können den Mini USB Anschluß hinter der Box als Powerquelle für eine eSata Festplatte in dieser Weise verwenden?

  • Given up with the OCX Throttle drive - it doesn't work!
    Put a sata drive on the cable, works first time.

  • oozoon uses a sata stick without problem
    ask him - in his thread

  • Hi oozoon!


    Can you confirm that I can use the esata stick listed on the following Link + USB carger and run it on my 500 HD?

    Your quick response will be higly appreciated.


    Cheers

  • sorry guys, but i don't have esata sticks for breakfast. i have only a Super Talent eSATA-Drive 32 GB as i wrote in 500HD stable thread. this works. i have not enough money to test all availlable esata stick you get around this world.
