Upload to USB
#1
Hi,

I'm trying to upload music to a USB attached to the PI, I'm using CyberDuck, but I keep on getting a message saying that I do not have permission to upload to the directory:

My USB is named Music
I am trying to upload to media/Music

I am connecting using:
SSH File transfer protocol
<Pi IP)
User: pi
Password:moodeaudio

Am I missing something here? Obviously I’m a newbie, so is the lack of response because this is not possible?

 I had it working once but the transfer speed was slow and I reverted to unplugging the HDD from the Pi and transferring files to it directly from my MacBook.

i'm not familiar with "SSH File transfer protocol" but I think it requires sftp-server to be running. There is an sftp package already present in stretch-lite but I have no idea how to configure it.

Code:
pi@rp3:~ $ dpkg -l | grep sftp
ii  openssh-sftp-server              1:7.4p1-10+deb9u4              armhf        secure shell (SSH) sftp server module, for SFTP access from remote machines

The other option for transferring files is via Samba to the Samba shares that are automatically posted by moOde.
Enjoy the Music!

Accessing the smb shares that moode offers is the best way to access a pi mounted hard drive for light file copying. If you need to transfer a lot of data then direct connection to your pc would be preferable as it’ll go much faster.

Works here.

reed@T520 ~/Music/FormatTest/SineWave $ sftp pi@192.168.1.182
pi@192.168.1.182's password:
Connected to 192.168.1.182.

Note that these files went to pi's home directory because I didn't first execute a "cd".

Works same for me too :-)

It looks like sftp-server is automatically started on the target when the connection is made.

Code:
pi@rp5:~ $ sftp rp3
pi@rp3's password:
Connected to rp3.
sftp> lcd /media/VFAT128/Test_mixed/Raymond/Lick\ Your\ Ticket/
sftp> put *.*
Uploading ...
.
.

pi@rp3:~ $ pgrep sftp-server
7080

Many thanks! it worked perfectly as a Samba share, I basically just found the device in my Mac network, accessed as a guest, and have copied files over. It's only one album which is bearable with the transfer speeds.
