I have a huge problem.

I have 20 HDD and 2 usb 16slot hubs. And if I connect the two hubs than everything is fine and works fine if the total number of hdd is over 19 rasbian OS 64 bit disconnects all of them.

Im hardcore desperate I tried it with other hubs even putting the hub into the hub and stuff but nothing seems to work. And sometimes 10 hdd got recognized and sometimes its 15. It seems completly random. And no the heater is not on its broken the chia farm is now my heater. When its runnnign it takes 120watts. in the back is one powerline and all 3 10slot power lines are connected wiuth that in the back. everything has power. the main powerline is in the socket. I used for the internal hdd the external conectors.

One more question rasbian unmounts and disconnect the hdd. But I can only ge tthem to show up if im restarting the pi is there a other option?

Would be awesome if someone cna help me.

  • My question Why raspbian disconnects all my hdd's for no reason and without giving me and epxlanation why they are disconnecting. And how can I make them show up again without rebooting the whole thing. Jan 9, 2022 at 13:14
  • my first guess would be a power issue ... check voltages
