Hello,
I have a "TX8" TV box running Android 6 Marshmallow with Amlogic S912 CPU and as media I have two hard drives enclosures Pro Mediasonic each holding 4 hard drives with media 2TB each with EXT4 format.
These media drives have been used with my old HTPC running linux and kodi and now I wish to use them with the new Android box but Android system does NOT recognize the drives. I purchased two apps/drivers that claim to recognize any format but do not work.
How I could successfully connect and use these hard drives?

Here is the link with the Android box I have:
[cannot post links due to rules]
Search for: "Tanix TX8 Android 6.0 Marshmallow Amlogic S912 TV BOX"
and for the hard drives bay: "Mediasonic ProBox 4 Bay 3.5' SATA Hard Drive Enclosure - USB 2.0 & eSATA (HF2-SU2S2)"

I guess this forum is simply inactive and weak, same as Android. I should probably wait for few months. Thanks!
