Hi @Aka52 

I haven't tried adding storage to mine yet but did you follow the requirements and steps from Google?

  • To expand your Chromecast’s storage, you’ll need a:
  • Compatible USB-C hub with a power delivery port.
    USB-C charger (higher than 1.5A / 7.5w).
    Portable storage device, such as a USB stick or SD card.
    If you use a USB storage device, use USB 2.0 or greater speeds.
    To expand your storage:
  • Connect your Chromecast to your TV’s HDMI port.
    Connect the USB-C hub to your Chromecast.
    Connect the USB-C charger to a power outlet and to the power delivery port of the USB-C hub.
    Connect your USB storage device to the hub. You’ll be prompted to reformat the storage device in order to expand your system storage.

I'll ask some of the others and see if they have any ideas.

Can you just confirm the extra devices you have match the requirements posted above?

Thanks!
