Cutting a lot of hours story short.
I have been really struggling with attaching an SSD.
Currently, when i boot up, the drive is found, removed, found, removed constantly until the pi freezes up.
It shows up under System information for a bit and then disappears.
I go into SSH but it doesn't show under blkid.
I have three theories:
1. I am formatting it wrong. Please confirm whether this should be Ext4 or FAT32.
I am connecting the SSD to a Pi 4 with a USB to sata adapter.
2. Where I have tried to change the recording system path I have got it wrong and it is searching for it.... or something.
I can't correct this now as I can't find the drive.
3. I am a bit concerned that this might be the case.
Could it be the £4 adapter? Would this happen if it was getting intermittent signal?
