mpd+ncmccp is a golden combination for reliable music with hot plugged USB storage. Here I'll describe how I've configure my setup.


Current working configuration is based on Arch Wiki

$ sudo systemctl disable mpd.service

Autostart mpd. If you're using some kind of Desktop Enviroment it could be done in .xinitrc (or DE specific configuration), otherwise use .initrc. Simply add the following line to config file:

PulseAudio, local user workaround

To allow hot-plugging of the USB storage I'm using /etc/fstab


$ sudo blkid /dev/sdb1
[sudo] password for cmd: 
/dev/sdb1: LABEL="Music" UUID="5ec3ea09-fd96-4168-93d0-871bc0bfa039"
UUID_SUB="a479a36c-e5e6-4986-86ec-0a9be9e8d820" TYPE="btrfs"

Edit /etc/fstab. Please notice that there should be empty line at the end of /etc/fstab!
