Hi all, was hoping to get some help to understand the proper method to auto mount an external HDD on boot, specifically one formatted to FAT32.
I was following this tutorial in order to setup an ethernet samba share for my PS2, but while my external HDD is able to connect, the permissions on it are read only. As such, my PS2 is able to connect to the Samba share but not see any files, and on Windows 10, while I can view the file tree, I cannot create new files/ folders or alter existing ones.
I believe my issue stems from the /etc/fstab config.
The line given in the tutorial is: /dev/sda1 /media/PS2SMB auto nofail,noatime 0 0
Looking at other tutorials and forum posts online, I’ve tried inserting the UUID in place of the /dev/sda1 line, adding the terms vfat and rw, adding a UID of pi and umask of 1000, as well as adding a line after nofail to prevent loading the HDD after 15 seconds. All to no avail; the last attempt I made put my Pi in emergency mode.
I’d love to understand the proper notation and order to get this up and running with full permissions! Cheers!
