I'm getting the same thing with
Asus RT-N18U
build 47695
WD MyPassport 2TB

It doesn't matter which USB port I use, 2.0 or 3.0. I'm new in dd-wrt, installed it only few days ago, and had a challenge to set up HDD + transmission + samba share and dlna. At the some moment I had all these things working on the recommended build 44715, but decided to try the latest. After installing latest build I couldn't make HDD visible to other services. USB page is showing "/dev/sda1 mounted to /tmp/mnt/sda1", but there is just empty folder.

I've tried to return to previous build but there is the same behavior, so it seems it is some problem with HDD.

@kirmak welcome to the forum.

I splitted your post, reviving a 5 year old thread which is only sideways related is not that useful.

If your drive is NTFS formatted run chkdsk (you can run it from a Windows machine)

The Linux NTFS driver which DDWRT uses will often flag the drive as dirty e.g. if it is not properly unmounted etc.

Post screenshots of the USB and NAS page so that the local experts can have a look Smile

Check hasn't mounted as sdb1 etc as that is happening to me and making sda1 empty.
