I have a Linkstation HS-320GB running firmware 2.1. I have successfully installed a 1TB external USB drive and have formatted it to XFS. I can transfer files to and from either drive while connected via my office LAN.

When I try to connect via www.buffalonas.com, I can see the normal share folder and can access all the files and folders, and I can see the usbdrive1, but when I click on the usbdrive1, nothing happens. all i get is a brief clock next to the name. I can not see any of the files or folders that are on the usb drive.

Please help.

I have ensured that I have the same share settings for both folders and user permissions.

I have stopped and then restarted the web service. I have rebooted the NAS. I have removed the share (usb), unmounted the usbdisk, rebooted the subdrive, reconnected and shared the usbdisk, restarted the web service; all with no luck.

It feels like something small that I've missed, but can not figureout what it is.

Please help. This issue is delaying deployment in our office.

Can't help with the Buffalonas.com configuration (I have
no need for such a stuff), but if everything else fails, just
link the root of the USB drive into the working share (read:
make a symbolic link from the root of the USB drive to a
directory within the working share).

Thanks, sounded like a brilliant idea, but when I tried I get this error message:

"Explorer can not create the Symbolic Link L:\M:\. The destination directory is a subdirectory of the source"

I am assuming that this is because the USB drive is plugged into the USB port of the Linkstation

You can't do this from your external machine.
You have to connect to the LS via Telnet or SSH
and create the symbolic link manually.

I think I'm out of my depths here. Never used telnet/ssh. I've downloaded PuTTY to connect, but really have no clue what to do.

Any other ideas?

Read about "open firmware" and acp_commander.jar.
