Unable to import files from External HDD

Post by venkatr90 » 2020/09/03 10:09:23

I am very new to the Linux OS. I am using Cent OS 7.8 and I recently installed DaVinci Resolve Studio 16.2.6. The system is all set perfectly. Now I have only difficulty. All am trying to do is, Import media from an External HDD in DaVinci Resolve but strangely none of the HDDs that are connected to the system is visible in source selection but the HDDs are connected just fine and am able to open them and view all my files. But then why is it not showing up when am trying to use those HDDs within DaVinci Resolve? Please help me. Am so frustrated.

Note: This HDD is formatted with NTFS and was already in use with another system and I have configured NTFS into the centos kernel as well.

How?

The correct method to enable NTFS support on CentOS is to first yum install epel-release and then yum install ntfs-3g - is that what you did? If not then undo what you did and do that instead.
CentOS 6 will die in November 2020 - migrate sooner rather than later!

CentOS 5 is dead, do not use it.
