Internal SD Card for Library

#2
Hey TheWalkman. Cheers - glad you're enjoying PlexPi!

Yes, people are correct in stating that storing the media on the SD card will reduce its life span... they have a limited number of cycles, as do usb flash drives. Both of those options have a significantly lower read/write lifespan when compared to an external USB SDD or HDD.

It doesn't sound like you're afraid of wrecking a card, and you know the caveat that if you use it for media, it'll wear out faster than if you don't use it for media. So by all means, with those warnings, go ahead--no reason why not... you want portable/easy/compact, not 50 years lifespan  Smile

As always, just make sure you always have a second (and third) copy of all the files that mean a lot to you.

PS - You can also use CIFS to mount a NAS share. Just sayin'  Smile

Have fun!
