[quote="CanadaMoose"][quote]Although a reformat of the USB NAS to ext4 always solves the write issues, it doesn't help that the NAS can't be consistantly available to devices other than those that can write to ext4 (iPads, Mac, etc).[/quote]
Samba "hides" the drive format by standardizing the access protocol. Unless you need to directly connect the USB drive to Windows, an ext4 format will work just fine using dd-wrt based NAS.
I have used NTFS and ext4 formats for my USB drives. Both work, but I'm sticking with ext4 as it is native to Linux.[/quote]

Sure, ext4 works just fine if your write access is just for Linux devices.

Unfortunately, there's not built in write support (ext4) by Apple, Microsoft, etc. So, you can't write to NAS using these platforms.
