Saving photos to USB drive

Post by joedevivo »

I'm so close. The only thing I can't do is take pictures :lol:

My compute module has eMMC storage, which is running the SLP2 image. I've got a thumb drive in the usb port, formatted to FAT32 but I can't seem to convince the StereoPi to write to it. Any suggestions?

Hi joedevivo,
A half of my StereoPis is equipped with eMMC. After the first boot, SLP2 formats all free space on eMMC to FAT32, and images and photos are saved in this partition by default. So it's fine to use eMMC for this. I use onboard file manager for downloading images and videos.

As for the USB drive recordings:
- which version of SLP2 you are using?
- did you choose USB drive as a place to save files?
- how your USB drive is formatted?

I'm on v0.11.19 with a FAT32 USB drive.

The interesting bit is that I did set Recording > Storage to "USB drive", but when I change it to "microSD", which I'm assuming is that eMMC partition you're talking about, it still won't save the file.

Still haven't been able to figure this out. Is there any log file I can check? The only output I get is `failed` where the path to the photo should be in the UI.
