Banana Pi Pro Sata not working

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I have two Banana Pi Pro boards with current Armbian 20.02.1_Bananapipro_buster_current_5.4.20_minimal, kernel 5.4.20-sunxi and both have small SSD connected (WD 120GB and Goodram 120GB).
fdisk -l doesn't show any drive's except sdcard (and ram drives). Is there any way I can get it working?

Banana Pi Pro are both same: powered by microUSB cable and dual 2,4A charger (aukey), both SATA cables are genuine (sinovoip - manufacturer of Banana Pi R2) and both SSD's are quite low power. Both SSD's works on same setup (except power supply) on Banana Pi R2.

Here are results of armbianmonitor -u for both SBC's:

mUSB connector is barely enough to power the board, while USB ports on the Banana PRO gives out perhaps 50-100mA per port, with some voltage drop when on load.

 

That is certainly not enough for "quite low power SSD". Use powered USB hub.

Thank you. But my Sata SSD drives connected through sata data and power cable;
It's not USB drive.
Should I power whole Banana Pi Pro from USB powered HUB?
(I think hub gives me less power than genuine 2,4A charger ...)

Aha. Then its strange. I have to find this board somewhere and see for myself ... I hope someone else can confirm that SATA on latest images doesn't work.
