USB Flash Drive

Post by Rigsson »

Hello all,
I just finished assembling a starter kit in to a case and I would like to store the photos to an external flash drive instead of the internal SD card. I added a panel mount USB extender to bring the connections to the outside of the case. When I plug in the flash drive its activity light blinks a couple times so it powers up and is (I assume) recognized. On a Pi 3b (Raspbian) I see the drive as a subfolder to the media folder but on the Stereo Pi all I see is the photo folder. Does S.L.P. mount to a different path than Raspbian? And if so what is the path?

Hi Rigsson,
We have exactly the same question here: Change the path for video recordings?
Hope this helps!

Thank you. That did the trick.
For any others who might happen to fall into this thread I had to change the mount point to /dev/sda1
