I've plugged in a USB flash drive (actually an SD card->USB converter) to the rear port of my LS-WXL but no matter what I try to pass as arguments to `mount` result in either an invalid argument or invalid device error (depending on whether i use /dev/sdc1 or /dev/sdc). The flash drive is formatted HPFS/NTFS according to `fdisk -l`. Thinking that maybe ntfs drivers weren't loaded, I used ipkg to install ntfs-3g and ntfsprogs. Still no joy; from dmesg when plugging in the USB drive:

Code:
scsi 2:0:0:0: Direct-Access     Generic  STORAGE DEVICE   0817 PQ: 0 ANSI: 6
sd 2:0:0:0: Attached scsi generic sg2 type 0
sd 2:0:0:0: [sdc] 123860992 512-byte logical blocks: (63.4 GB/59.0 GiB)
sd 2:0:0:0: [sdc] Write Protect is off
sd 2:0:0:0: [sdc] Mode Sense: 23 00 00 00
sd 2:0:0:0: [sdc] Write cache: disabled, read cache: enabled, doesn't support DPO or FUA
 sdc: sdc1
sd 2:0:0:0: [sdc] Attached SCSI removable disk


Various attempts to mount the drive:

Code:
root@LS-WXL283:~# clear
root@LS-WXL283:~# mkdir /mnt/usb
root@LS-WXL283:~# mount /dev/sdc1 /mnt/usb
mount: mounting /dev/sdc1 on /mnt/usb failed: Invalid argument
root@LS-WXL283:~# mount /dev/sdc /mnt/usb

root@LS-WXL283:~# mount -t hpfs /dev/sdc /mnt/usb
mount: mounting /dev/sdc on /mnt/usb failed: No such device
root@LS-WXL283:~# mount -t hpfs /dev/sdc1 /mnt/usb
mount: mounting /dev/sdc1 on /mnt/usb failed: No such device
root@LS-WXL283:~# rmdir /mnt/usb
root@LS-WXL283:~#


Is it possible to mount a USB drive from the rear port? What am I missing here?

You can mount ntfs read only.
The kernel does not support fuse, ntfs-3g and ntfsprogs.

Buffalo mounts NTFS-Drives automatically

Code:
/dev/usbdisk1_1 on /mnt/usbdisk1 type ntfs (ro,relatime,uid=0,gid=0,umask=00,nls=utf8,errors=continue,mft_zone_multiplier=1)

Actually, I just learned something. The USB drive in question shows up in fdisk as HPFS/NTFS, but in actuality it's formatted exFAT. I formatted a different USB drive as NTFS and copied the files from the exFAT to the new NTFS one (all in Win8) and then plugged the new, NTFS drive in to the WXL. It mounted automatically. Fascinating.
