Same happened to me just right now |
My problem on the first place was that when I connected my USB HUB with a 2.5" HDD on it, the BPi almost immediately powered off. Tried many times. So I thought 2A from USB HUB is not enough?? My HDD has an Y cable, so I powered it with a separate USB adapter, also 2A. Small popping sound, small smoke, byebye BPi...
I don't think this should have happened with proper electricity... :-/ Ok, I'll buy a new BPi when I'll have money again, but then how to make my HDD work (which works properly on my RPi btw...)?
