System: My Cloud (single drive version, 6Tb)
Status: Configured, on my network, and apparently working. (Wow! What a concept!!)
Static IP, DNS, gateway, etc.
Device name changed to a name of my own choosing.
All media and cloud functionality disabled.
SSH enabled and working.
Turned off indexing by running the two commands mentioned in another posting:
- /etc/init.d/wdmcserverd stop
- /etc/init.d/wdphotodbmergerd stop
Tried attaching a 3T drive, formatted as ext4 to the USB port on the back - no joy
I took the time to peruse many of the messages on this particular fora, and - aside from the occasional troll and/or people with an abysmal lack of manners this seems to be a very interesting group. The people on this fora seem to have a clue, are willing to help, (if asked politely), and seem genuinely interested in getting things running well.
For all of this, I thank you.
When attaching any hard drive preformatted as ext2, ext3, or ext4, the system returns the error:
Unsupported File System
An unsupported file system has been detected on a USB device (vendor JMicron, model: JM20336_SATA__USB_Combo, serial number: 214DA8888888, file system: N/A, label: N/A). Please remove the USB device.

It appears to work with the various flavors of FAT and NTFS.
Short of nuking it back to the stone-age with a full factory restore - do you have any ideas why this thing won’t access or mount a Linux filesystem?
I have already tried looking for the device in /dev.
If a supported drive is inserted, it appears as /dev/sdb1
If an unsupported drive is inserted, it does not even appear in /dev.
I tested this with a 6 gig USB hard drive by formatting it as ext2, ext3, and ext4 on a system running Mint 17.1. e2fsck on the Mint box disclosed that the drive was squeaky clean, (and yes I "-f"orced the fsck to run.), just in case the physical size of the original drive (3T) was the culprit.
According to the relevant instructions, the various flavors of the ext filesystem should be supported, and there is no mention of what the max USB hard drive size is.
What am I missing here?
