Re: [nslu2-linux] Mount Unslung drive on another PC?
- I have tried, but could not get it to work.
Unlung to a WD My Book Premium 500 GB HDD (using USB2)
* plug-in to a Windows XP machine installed with: EXT2IFS
(http://www.fs-driver.org/), could not read the HDD.
* plug-in to my Debian machine, could not read the HDD
I could get it to work with Debian/NSLU2
Then I installed Debain/NSLU2 re-formate the HDD, plug-in to My Debian
machine and it reads it just fine.
