    Hi,
    I have a "TX8" TV box running Android 6 Marshmallow with Amlogic S912 CPU and as media I have two hard drives enclosures Pro Mediasonic each holding 4 hard drives with media 2TB each with EXT4 format.
    These media drives have been used with my old HTPC running linux and kodi and now I wish to use them with the new Android box but Android system does NOT recognize the drives. I purchased two apps/drivers that claim to recognize any format but does not work.
    How I could successfully connect and use these hard drives?

    Here is the link with the Android box I have:
    Tanix TX8 Android 6.0 Marshmallow Amlogic S912 TV BOX

    The link of the hard drives enclosure: Mediasonic

    I guess this forum is simply inactive and weak, same as Android. I should probably wait for few months. Thanks!

    If someone had a solution, they would have posted it.

    I guess we are inactive or weak.. Perhaps you should move on....
