I have a WNDR3700 with 15778 on it. I am trying to setup a usb hd and cannot get it to mount. My fat32 thumbdrive can mount fine using automount, but when I put in my 500gb usb drive I get an "invalid argument" error. I've tried every configuration I can think of, I have the drive formatted exactly like this:
When I try any of the insmod commands I get a file exists error.
My hd is 500gb ext3 drive. It mounts fine on my linux and windows pc's. I don't know what else to try or if there is a version of dd-wrt I should switch to. I just find it weird the flash drive mounts fine and the usb drive doesn't.
I had to post this for others that maybe searching.
I was able to get a FAT formatted drive to work and kept thinking this was a formatting issue. Well I found another USB drive and formatted the same (it is smaller) but this one automounted as soon as I plugged it in... so it as the USB stick (HP v125W) no idea what is causing the problem but just a word to others it could be the drive / stick that is causing the problem.
