CONNECT AN EXTERNAL HDD (USB) TO RASPBERRY PI

By Guillermo Guerrero | January 6, 2016

In Raspberry Pi B model by default is limiting the output amperage. We can trick this behavior editing the config file:

vi /boot/config.txt

Add the following lines:

safe_mode_gpio=4
max_usb_current=1   

Reboot the raspberry and now you can plug the HDD in the usb port.
