EDIT- WAS SOLVED USING A DIFFRENT USB DRIVE! THE ONE HAK5 SENT WAS FAULTY!

Hi i am still new to pineapple so am sorry for what seems to you guys as a noob question but i have tried to get my 4gb sandisk usb stick (the one hak shop sells) to work with my pineapple s i can install moduals.

I followed the instructions in the book as close as i could but the software has changed in the new ubunto and i didnt know what version was used in the guide. So anyways that never worked. so i tried gparted... still no luck :(.

I also edited the USB config file to the settings below and pressed the update button.

config global automount
option from_fstab 1
option anon_mount 1

config global autoswap
option from_fstab 1
option anon_swap 0

config mount
option target /usb
option device /dev/sda1
option fstype ext4
option options rw,sync
option enabled 1
option enabled_fsck 0

config swap
option device /dev/sda2
option enabled 1

Still no luck

I also entered in the advanced section 'mkswap /dev/sda2' and pressed enter but when i reboot the usb stick is not getting power so even ifi take it out an put it back in again (i know because the usb light on the stick and pineapple do not show).

all this and still no extra memory in the resources tab. Although under the usb part in resources it does show a sandisk usb plugged in...

Can anybody help?

am running with the new pineapple and version 2.7

am running it through the usb power cable connected to the pineapple and the laptop. It must have enough power because it powers it somtimes and its only after a reboot it will not. Does my USB configuration look correct?

Also am not sure if my socket will over power the pinapple because am in the UK and we have a higher power output from are sockets

People have been having issues running the SanDisk drives with the Pineapple on the Pineapple Juice pack. It apparently doesn't push out enough power to keep everything happy. I'd suggest picking up an Anker 8400mHa or 10000mHa if you want to go mobile. I've been running the Pineapple with a 16GB SanDisk on the Anker with no problems.

As far as the UK power issue. As long as you have a 220VAC -> 5VDC power adapter, you should be fine. Basically if you go to the store and snag a USB adapter that fits your countries plugs, you'll be fine.

Either that or use a transformer to go from 220 to 120, then use the included power adapter that comes with the pineapple.

running it off the mains now using a ipod usb plug thing and the usb it defo geting enough power. The only thing i can think it is... is that i have not set it to master boot record because there is no option for it in gpart or ubuntu.... Is there anywere i can download the correct formating software so i know 100% its formatted correctly?

Also when i do i reboot do i leave the USB stick in or do i take it out before the reboot and put it back in after the pineapple sets wireless up and such?

EDIT: after entering command 'mkswap /dev/sda2' and rebooting the device the usb was still powered after reboot :D BUT no extra memory. I checked the logs (shown below) and noticed there was lots of errors that related to the sda side of things.


Does anyone know if this is part of the problem and how to solve it?
