    A few days now I'm learning how to ride a A10. Most of the time with enthusiasm ;-)
    But today I start the device for enjoying a movie… and: all posters were gone.
    Here my experiences:
    I tried some fixing ideas from this forum – nothing works (but I don’t try Ritas Hard FW-Reset).
    Yes - I read the MPS-Manual by "Nice Monkey" - but I'm not a technican and English is not my language as well ... A bit complicated to understand all.

    I recognized, that there was suddenly a wrong path for the library. How can this be?
    Normally the internal HDD has to be “/mnt/sda/sda2/ “ – and suddenly offhand it changes to “mnt/sda/sdb2”. ???
    Prior to that sometimes I connected an additionell second USB 3.0 HDD – THIS was correctly mounted as “sdb2”. After the “crash” I found (both HDD connected) two sdb2 paths – one named “sda” but the path was… sdb2. Very Curious. Via Filebrowser all movie playbacks work correct. Only the library-path was corrupt. (Evil Android?)

    I find no way to change the wrong path manually. So I take out the SATA-HDD and connected it by USB-Adapter to my Win-PC. I delete all hidden system-files. After insertion into the A10 everything goes the right way – a new library was created with the correct path. And all Posters find their way, too.

    But this can't be the normal way in the future… Please!!
    Any idea? At least a better workaround?

    Remove all .vidon folder from disks.
    Move all files in one more subfolder like /mnt/sda/sda2/VideoFromHDD, add on library VideoFromHDD and not sda2, do a same for USB disk VideoFromUSB1. VideoFromUSB2, now you have unique path library for all yours disk and Poster 2.0 will try to use it correctly.
