    Question Full access to USB HD?

    Based on limited experience and some Googling, when connecting my USB to the ATV I can't copy specific files from one to the other.
    Is there a way to do that, or is the USB hack really to allow sort of "replacing" the internal HD with an external one?

    Thanks,

    Default

    The USB hack allows it to fully access the attached HD (not through the built-in interface). Other plugins can access the USB without issue, move files, etc...

    I have ssh enabled and am fine using CLI vs. GUI - but is the USB-HDD mounted in a "regular" way, and if so where?

    Thanks

    Using diskutil it seems ATV sees my USB-HDD:
    -bash-2.05b$ diskutil list
    /dev/disk0
    #: type name size identifier
    0: GUID_partition_scheme *149.1 GB disk0
    1: EFI 34.0 MB disk0s1
    2: Apple_Recovery 400.0 MB disk0s2
    3: Apple_HFS OSBoot 900.0 MB disk0s3
    4: Apple_HFS Media 147.6 GB disk0s4

    but using df -h suggests otherwise:
    -bash-2.05b$ df -h
    Filesystem Size Used Avail Capacity Mounted on
    /dev/disk0s3 900M 746M 145M 84% /
    devfs 95K 95K 0B 100% /dev
    fdesc 1.0K 1.0K 0B 100% /dev
    <volfs> 512K 512K 0B 100% /.vol
    /dev/disk0s4 148G 40G 107G 27% /mnt

    and trying manual doesn't work:
    -bash-2.05b$ sudo mount /dev/disk0 testUSBHDD/
    /dev/disk0 on /mnt/Scratch/Users/frontrow/testUSBHDD: Resource busy

    As is probably obvious, I'm not a linux guy - my mount may very well be wrong - this is why I'm asking for help.

    Thanks
