    USB Hard drive not working since upgrading to EOS ICS

    I haven't been able to get my external hard drive to mount since upgrading to Team EOS Wifi ICS ROM. I normally use USB Mass Storage Watcher app to mount the drive but although this is recognizing that I have the drive connected it won't bring up the option to mount when I click on it. TBH I'm not even sure if the drive is already mounted as its location could have been moved in ICS, like the micro SD cards was. I've also tried selecting the USB mount option in Storage settings but this doesn't seem to work either, though it does cause the drive light to flash off and on when its selected.


    Any help appreciated.

    Thanks for the reply I tried your suggestion, I now at least get the option to mount the drive but when I do it it doesn't seem to do anything. Plus it doesn't show up in Root Explorer. I've also noticed in USB Watcher the location of the drive is listed as dev/block/sda I've tried looking here as well as mnt/usbotg but its not at either location.

    I've tried loads of things but I think the drive now can't be mounted in this ROM, I've tried using the Stick Mount app as well as USB Mass Storage Watcher but I can't get my drive to mount, yet USB flash drives are fine. I've tried updating Busy box, I've tried cleaning the drive, I've tried rebooting the tablet endlessly but it just will not allow me to access it. I may switch to the CM9 ROM and see if I have any luck with that.

    Edit:

    Finally managed to sort it!

    I used USB Mass storage Watcher and when I was given the opportunity to mount the drive I created a new folder location for the drive called hard drive and then this showed up and I was able to access it. Job done.
