    Mine is a big LG unit. I bought 2 to use with my pcs years ago but had them stored. Fortunately I kept them. The one I pulled is great. And yes it's got its own psu

    I have checked and quite correct, I should have done so at the start.

    The Raspberry Pi cannot power the vast majority of external drives, so they need their own PSU, or a powered USB hub.

    You can increase the current output via the USB outputs from 0.6 to 1.2 and this will make the majority of USB HD units work (not those that come with there own power supply) . This is a software change and is available on most software flashes such as Max2play and PiCore .

    Put Volumio on last night and itís a slick UI, best Iíve used yet on Pi. System seems solid and responsive, sound is the same as my DietPi / Allo GUI software. I use Mconnect to control TIDAL.

    Installed nanosound, but waiting on a Freecom Classic external drive as I want a drawer unit rather than wrestling with my slim drive.

    Anyone suggest a drive they have tried and been successful with?

    The one I have won't read, I think it's because it has 2 USBs, one for data and one for power. I thought it would work because it works with one USB on my Mac but it doesn't work on the Pi even with 2 USBs plugged in.

    Iíll let you know how I get on with my Freecom Classic, which has a separate PSU. These are quality German units, very heavy compared to my others.

    Have you tried plugging the power USB into a separate 5v supply?

    I haven't actually, never thought of that. Definitely worth a go!

    Nanosound is great. Sounds the same, or maybe even a bit better, than streaming via TIDAL. I know there can be watermarking and normalisation, and ripping variance via streaming services vs. CD. The drive is silent in use, no excessive spinning up, but such a thing is a more software related issue, meaning that Volumio / Nanosound is doing a good job.

    Iíd put this up against any CD transport full stop.
