Power Supply Requirement
  • Please use high quality power adapter, or the HDD/SSD may cannot be recognized.
  • Since X882 can install two 2.5-inch hard drives, it needs a high-quality power supply to provide enough current.
  • Due to installation restrictions, please pay attention to the thickness of 2.5" SSD/HDD.
  • We do not recommend using Samsung hard drives,Please use hard drives of other brands.
  • As with all SSDs, new SSD/HDD must be formatted before use.
  • Older SSD drives with less efficient flash media may not perform as well as newer drives.
  • A microSD card is required for forceing the Raspbian OS to use the HDD/SSD for its "root" partition
  • Additional USB3.0 A Male to A Male cable is required (not supplied)
  • Do not power your Raspberry Pi via the Pi's 40-pin header and Type-C USB socket at the same time.

Raid setup

【RAID setup and Jumper setting】

Warning : Please backup your data before setup and switch, otherwise you maybe lost your data.

1. Install the HDDs

2. Please connect the X882 to your PC or Raspberry Pi board and keep power on

3. Switch RAID mode

  • Set the switch button to your preferred RAID mode(PM/RAID 0/RAID 1/SPAN) as per the RAID illustration table.
  • Press the SET button for about 5 seconds, and release it till the blue LED indicators starts flashing.
  • After RAID mode changed, please confirm that the PC can recognize the disk(s) properly and shows the right capacity.

or you can run the fdisk -l command to view the hard drive on raspberry pi OS when you connect x880 to raspberry pi board:

fdisk -l

You can found two hard drives if you select 'clear raid mode'(this is PM model)


You found only one hard drive if you select the RAID0/RAID1 model

4. Set CLEAR RAID mode (PM, factory default setup)

  • Press the SET button for about 5 seconds then and release it till blue LED indicators starts flashing.
  • After above processes, the setup for CLEAR RAID is done.

Hi - the X882 board has a blue LED for both HDD1 and HDD2. Just above those blue LEDs are smaller red LEDs.

What do those red LEDs indicate: a) when briefly flash b) when constantly on

Thank you!

It means HDD ERROR, HDD feedback SMART information is wrong, but if your HDD can work normally, you can ignore it.
