USB hard drive

I ran into an issue today. Yesterday I had my MK808 all set up with my 250gb USB hard drive connected through a powered USB hub with no issues. My kids watched a movie on it and after they went to bed I flashed my MK808 to the Finless 1.5 ROM with no issues. Today, when I plugged the same USB hard drive in I get a message that states "Damaged SD card" and it won't display my drive. The drive works fine on my Linux box and my Windows 7 box. It is formatted with NTFS. I have another USB drive (exact same model as the non working drive) that loads just fine when plugged into the MK808. Has anyone else had this issue or does anyone have an idea of how to fix it? I did format the drive with Windows and I get the same error.

Wassup geekdadof4,
I haven't heard of this issue before but since you already formatted your HD then try to reformat it in Fat32 format instead of NTFS to see if that works.
Good Luck, Ill be online for few hours if you need any help

I formatted it with FAT32 using the HP Format Tool and then it was recognized. Something else funny happened though, when I plugged it into the powered USB hub it didn't recognize it but if I plugged it into the OTG port it was fine. Weird. Anyway it works now so this may be something to try in the future if anyone has the same issue.
