I have encountered an odd problem.
I have two external hard drives, both 2.5inch but one is IDE (20GB) and the other SATA (120GB). Both work fine when cabled to my desktop or laptop.
However, when using a TV media player (NBox), only one drive is recognised by the player unit ... being the IDE drive.
Any ideas why the other drive will not show up?
I thought that power ratings might be the problem, but then the IDE is 5 volts and the SATA 3.3v, so the mains connected media player should handle that OK? Both are NTFS and seem the same other than size and brand of casing.
