Issues right at arrival

After waiting for several months the kit arrived. I wasn’t supprised about any printed documentation but some pictured guidlines would be helpful.

So after figuring out how to mount everything I was quite dissappointed finding out that the main housing does not have the properly cut thread in order to mount the base plate. I broke one screw and now I have to get a M2 thread drill in order to get thoses screws tightend.

After installing dietpi I desparetly tried to mount the harddrive. I use a single 2TB HDD and it is not showing up on any device list. Might there be an issue with the USB bridge?

A more step by step (even if it is quite short) written instruction how to go through the installation steps would be nice.

Hi, @edox677

You can check the video on the getting started section for how to assemble the case:

I already did. The assembly is not an issue anymore. THX

Supporting script needs to be installed.

which one? I l already ran

curl -sL | sudo -E bash -

sudo systemctl status rockpi-sata.service

Ok, I just found out, that the USB bridge connector is quite tide and I had to really force it into the USB plugs.
Now the drive manager is able to see the drives! THY

Good to hear it work.

After fews (nearly 45 format lol) plug/unplug bridge enter fine :slight_smile:
