I'm trying to set up my raspberry pi as a media server for my home network. I followed the tutorial here: http://www.howtogeek.com/139433/how-to-turn-a-raspberry-pi-into-a-low-power-network-storage-device/
I believe I have done everything correctly. I can ssh into my pi using putty and I can see that my pi is connected to my network when I log into my router. But the pi won't appear in my file explorer. One issue I was having when I first connected the hard drive to the pi is that it wasn't getting enough power. The hard drive would briefly power up and then turn off. I fixed this by going into the pi config.txt file and adding "max_usb_current=1". The hard drive then stayed on with no issues. Could the problem be its still not getting enough power?
