Re: New Smarthub2 and WDMYCloud connectivity

@newja 

This is a long thread and I may have missed why the SH2 can't access the SSD, if so apologies, but if the SSD is a 2.5 inch internal drive you could mount it in a cheap USB enclosure to plug it into the SH2. 

EDIT - I see TimCurtis has covered this

It's quite possible that the SH2 USB port doesn't supply enough power to support an SSD drive, have you a flash drive you could try as that requires a lot less power?


It powers my Toshiba 2Tb SSD drive ok.

If only we did know why it will not read it!  I certainly would not be dismounting a new SSD to test anything out!  I shall, however, be trying a flash drive after Ive done dinner 🙂

Just as a total long shot, it shouldn't have any effect, but make sure you have turned off Smart Setup on the hub.
