6601Re: What maximum disk size is supported by the NSLU2?
- Jul 25, 2007i have 2 500GB drives and haven't had any problems
USB #2 Maxtor 500GB EXT3 (formatted buy NSLU2)
USB #1 Hub with Maxtor 500GB (linux formated FAT), & 160GB (windows
formated FAT) from time to time i add this one
points out problems with drives larger then 250GB, i took the gamble
that i wouldn't have any problems and didn't..
one thing i can say is access to the drives is a bit slow when trying
to access the whole directory listing, takes a while to browse that
much data in a GUI, i'd think smaller drive would be a lot nice if
your impatient. i would think others have something similar to this
setup, but i haven't found many posts, either no one is talking or i'm
one of the lucky few with this setup..
i've been looking at de-underclocking it, just didn't feel this would
help my problems.. also i have had an issue when the house gets over
85F (no A/C in the house) i believe it is related to the drives
getting quite warm, all lights on the nslu2 go out, but the network
light, no ssh or web gui anymore.. putting a small fan on the hd's
when it's this hot and all problems go away.. another downsize of
large hard drives, or maybe my fault with the brand and case selection..
hope this help.. i'd be interested to hear if others are using larger
