Cannot read HFS+ on LinkStation Duo
« on: October 17, 2011, 04:24:39 pm »

I am trying to read an HFS+ harddrive using a LinkStation Duo (LS-WX1.0TL/1D-R, firmware version 1.54?). I connect the harddrive and the function light goes on for some time. I can see the drive mounted with the following info:


USB Disk 1, External, 201,633KB, 22,850KB, 11.33%, FAT, Generic, External


The disk is 1TB and Disk Utility on OS X clearly shows only one HFS+ partition, so the info is clearly wrong. The manual for LinkStation seems to suggest that I can mount HFS+ drives in read only mode. So, why does this not work? Is the manual wrong, or is it something in my setup?


Here is the number for the User's Manual that I use: 35011114 ver.01


EDIT: Forgot to add that the disk has a GUID partition table.
