RP4440 - USB ports used for other peripherals.

Hello folks,

I have what should be an easy one, I've have read the documentation on the rp4440 and they all state that the 2 USB ports are there for keyborad and mouse only. This is probably reality but I need to ask:

- has anyone tried to connect an external USB HDD on one of these 2 USB ports and make it work ?

Not expecting any magic answers since the OS drivers have probably been written to handle the 2 identified devices (k/b & mouse), but I figured it's worth asking...

Thanks to all,
Serge

yes you can use external USB HDD though officially not supported.

Thank you,

As expected 11.31 would unofficially support USB HDD's. This confirms my present position since I am running all my 18 servers on 11.11.

thank you, points will be awarded.
