I have an external 1tb hard drive that I want to connect as a samba share. Because I have files over 4gb I can't use fat 32. I want to use NTFS as I do use the drive with windows systems when accessing the largest files to save time.

I have been trying to find a guide to help me get ntfs up and running on my 600n, but I can't find anything useful. Could someone point me to a thread. I can't believe that there hasn't been a guide written at some point for something basic like this. Still I can't seem to find it.


I did find a few threads that suggested the big firmware supported it out of the box, but it didn't when I tried it. Crying or Very sad http://www.dd-wrt.com/wiki/index.php/What_is_%22DD-WRT%22%3F#File_Versions also says that it is not supported by any firmware out of the box.

At the moment I am running build 18777 BrainSlayer-V24-preSP2.

Help, please. Sad

What version of firmware are you running?

The "big" version is supposed to support ntfs, however by default it will not mount due to the modules not being loaded in memory. I think you have to insert them first before trying to mount an ntfs file system.

I noted that I am currently running build 18777 BrainSlayer-V24-preSP2 in my first post. Isn't that the firmware version?

Yeah, that was 'my bad'. I skipped right over that.

To check for modules loaded, use the command 'lsmod'. To see what modules the firmware has, check the directory "/lib/modules/*.*.*" where the stars are the current kernel number (mine is 2.4.37). That directory can tell you if you have any ntfs related modules to mount ntfs.

There is no dd-wrt support for ntfs in kernel 2.4 builds which is the only type of build you can use on the 600.

fat-16
fat-32
ext2
ext3

are the supported file systems for external usb disks or flash sticks.

Then you must follow the directions on that thread. However, it will *still* require the downloading and inserting of the ntfs modules into the kernel to be able to mount ntfs.

If it was *that* obvious, then why ask about another thread?
