2. Click on the menu System > Startup

3. Disable MiniDLNA.
Note: do not disable it from the minidlna settings page, only disable it from the Startup page 

4. Go to Local Startup (bottom of startup page) and insert the followin command to mount the drive and start miniDLNA.

The command should be:
sleep 5
mount /dev/sda2 -o rw,async
/etc/init.d/minidlna start
exit 0 

Note: mofify "sda2" by the id of your hdd as mounted on Zappiti Explorer. It could be "sda1" or "sda3".
