    Is the 500Gb drive plugged in via USB?

    What do the following commands say?

    Code:
    # dmesg | grep USB
    Maybe you omit '| grep USB' but that will be a lot of output.

    Code:
    # lspci -nnk

    Honeyman, I found out about the df -T command the same way so, we live and learn.

    Joaogl, I'm curious about whether your Arch system functions the way it is meant to other than not being able to access the hard drive? I noticed in several places on the page you linked to earlier that it says you need at least a 4GB flash and you have a 2GB. On the other hand, elsewhere on the page it says 2GB is enough?

    Second its says that also supports 2Gb but I think if it wasnt enough it shouldnt let me install it on the SD properly or give some kind of error...

    Is there any way to make the SD card load the OS into the Disk Drive?
    I mean, because it needs the SD to load dont know why but I think it was the way it was build I could add like a file saying Hey the OS is in this Directory (DiskDrive Directory..)

    If the system has an installer you could install to the external hard drive. From the little I read about it, I doubt it has an installer.
    You could also use cp or dd command to put it on the external but that presents problems. Doing it from a running system will likely cause problems and additionally, you don't know where to copy it to.

    The output you posted above shows four usb devices but can't tell what is what. There are vendor and product ids listed, you could try looking them up. I'm not familiar with raspberry pi and don't really have any further suggestions.

    this is so wierd.... On the boot I clearly saw a message saying something about the diskdrive I only saw Seagate Expension Driver...
    My question how is it possible to know the name of the driver if it doesnt show up on any command?

    Have you previously created any partitions on your 500GB drive?
    Have you previously created any filesystem, formatted a partition(s)?
    Have you tried using the parted command?
    What happens when you type: mount -a, in a terminal?

    Even with no partitions and no filesystem, you should get some output from the fdisk command. I doubt if you would be able to use the disk w/o a filesystem. As I said, I am not familiar with the raspberry pi and its limitations.
