First of all I am running Debian distribution on BBB from the official site.
- Debian (BeagleBone, BeagleBone Black - 2GB SD) 2014-05-14 - more info - bittorrent - md5: 35877ce21e8ed0eb1bdc6819ad71c317
The BBB has 5V/1A power source. When I try to connect external HDD to the USB port, the HDD is not spinning at all it looks like there is no power coming from the BBB USB port.
root@beaglebone:~# ls /dev/sd*
ls: cannot access /dev/sd*: No such file or directory
This is happening only until I restart the BBB board (and in case not to unplug the HDD). No power comes from the USB port until I restart the board with connected device (Not even charging the phone).
What I am trying to do is to plug the HDD and see the device in /dev/ without rebooting every time I connect a device. (For example I have 3 external HDD drives).
