The only way I have managed to mount the drive is by typing the command:

> sudo mount -t cifs //"IP"/hdd1 /home/pi -o uid=1000,iocharset=utf8,username="USERNAME",password="PASSWORD",sec=ntlm

However, I have to do this every single time I reboot.

Can this command run automatically?


Edit you fstab file:

sudo leafpad /etc/fstab

Add this line:

//"IP"/hdd1 /home/pi cifs uid=1000,_netdev,iocharset=utf8,defaults,rw,username=username,password=password 0 0

Save the file and reboot your Pi. It should automatically mount the shared folder.

  • I thought this would work but it still didnt mount after reboot – user19414 Aug 4 '14 at 2:09
  • Check /var/log/messages for errors related to the mount; or, to verify the entry, type "sudo mount /home/pi" after rebooting -- if the entry is set up correctly, it should mount; if not, you may get a message indicating the problem. – TomG Nov 30 '14 at 1:36
