3TB WD MyBook Essential and WZR-HP-G300NH as a NAS
« on: October 23, 2011, 09:43:07 am »

Hello

 

I have a 3TB WD MyBook Essential and a WZR-HP300NH (running 1.77) and am having trouble setting the 3TB up to use it as a NAS

 

I have formatted the drive in Ubuntu as GPT with a single XFS partition, yet when I plug it into the router and select Disk Management is says that there are No Identifiable Partitions

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated?

 

Thank you

A 3TB drive is not going to work. I beleive the maximum supported size is 1TB.

Where does it say in the documentation that only 1TB is supported?
