External Hard Drive success

Post by hawsey » Thu Mar 07, 2013 10:03 pm

So after a long long while I finally managed to get a small external hdd for joggling purposes;
After a bit of looking about I finally got a one of these off of ebuyer

http://www.ebuyer.com/414257-adata-640g ... -640gu-cbk
an ADATA 94 CH94 640gig, purchased mainly on cost (40 quid) but also well reviewed and 640gb was about what I wanted as well :D .
So I thought I would try write my image to a Hdd
First thought was Mevis, excellent Xp but the links were down :( next on to Foshiz mini, links down also....
Then I thought I would try xbmc os 0.9 which had failed with a login prompt on a usb stick but at least I had a copy of it.
I used win32 disc imager 0.7 and my new hdd showed up straight away (so no hot swapping as previously documented needed)
After writing I plugged in to my Joggler and switched on and it booted up perfectly, nice and smooth in operation too...
Result 8-)
Next I need to find a copy of Xp to try as this ran quite slow on my usb sticks and I am interested to find out how much my new toy speeds things up.

An idea of how small this thing is, is that it fits comfortably inside the metal stand of the Joggler.
Happy Joggling

Hi All
I run mevi's XP from an external HDD as well mine is toshiba 320gig. It fit's perfectly :)
I use mine mainly for streaming music + video's via wifi. I prefer mevi's XP because it run's cooler than linux os'es
according to core temp about 30 degree's :D
