Since Amazon opened up the USB port I have tried attaching several different drives that having been sitting around on my desk but none seem to be recognized by my FTV.

I have reformatted each drive as Fat32 and my FTV is not rooted and updated to 51.1.5.3_user_515040320.

Anyone actually got this working?

Although Stickmount on a rooted Fire TV is more reliable, I have found that my USB's are almost always recognized. But not ALL the time without repeated insertions. It can be a bit dodgy.

And there are times when it seems to take almost five minutes before I get the message indicating that the USB has been mounted and is recognized.

On other occasions, recognition occurs withing the first 30 seconds.

Thank you ponghclub that was exactly the problem. I never read about setting that option to off in any of the articles or posts I read on the subject before posting.
