On my LinkStation Mini I am trying to connect USB HDD that is 3TB in size
(its Seagate 3TB in IcyBox enclosure), but the LS Mini only reports the size of the USB HDD
as 2048.00 GB no matter if I choose partition as MBR or GPT or none at all
and plug the drive into the USB port :(

Is there any way to get drives larger than 2TB to work with this machine?

Here is some details, if I have forgot something please be patient with me as its all new to me:

fdisk -l

Disk /dev/sda: 500.1 GB, 500107862016 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 60801 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes

Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/sda1 1 125 1004031 83 Linux
/dev/sda2 126 748 5004247+ 83 Linux
/dev/sda4 749 60801 482375722+ 5 Extended
/dev/sda5 749 873 1004031 82 Linux swap
/dev/sda6 874 60690 480480021 83 Linux

Disk /dev/sdb: 500.1 GB, 500107862016 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 60801 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes

/dev/sdb5 749 873 1004031 82 Linux swap
/dev/sdb6 874 60690 480480021 83 Linux

Disk /dev/sdc: 2199.0 GB, 2199023255552 bytes
255 heads, 62 sectors/track, 271661 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 15810 * 512 = 8094720 bytes

Disk /dev/sdc doesn't contain a valid partition table


uname -a
Linux LS-WSGLCD7 2.6.16.16-arm1 #383 Mon Nov 10 13:33:20 JST 2008 armv5tejl unknown


On my other LS-WSXL F/W 1.65 I have attached Hitachi 4TB USB HDD partitioned as MBR
and it works fine on XFS file system ...

Your kernel can not use 4096bytes per sector drives
there is no way to mount this big drives with this old kernel

LS-WVL with FW > 1.60 can mount this
