Adding fresh HDD to Openelec System - AJ - 02-08-2013

Every time I add a fresh internal hard drive to openelec, it does not show up in the file manager as a source. So I have to connect it to my Windows machine and initialize the disk before adding back to the OE machine and copying data etc. Is there a way to avoid the Windows path and make the disk usable under OE itself?

AJ,

Check out this post in the Storage forum: http://openelec.tv/forum/65-storage/58977-help-needed-adding-a-local-hard-drive-for-media

There were some others that are a little more in-depth but I can't find them right now. You might be able to find some more info by browsing in that section.
