Issue Details

I have an SSD that I am trying to connect to my cRIO via USB, but I can't see it in the remote file browser. Why is that?

Solution

There are only certain file systems that are compatible with cRIO hardware. Other file systems (like exFAT32) are unsupported and may not function with your cRIO.
For example, try to reformat the SSD with FAT32 format.
