Default Adding an external USB disk to S5

Dear colleagues: did any of you have any luck in connecting a Linux-formatted external USB disk to Ion S5 and make it visible to the Torrent Server Virtual Machine (and hence to the Torrent Browser ?). Going on the traditional partition - format ext3 - mount system was not working for me and I heard it is not possible in a simple way. Thanks for any feedback ! Alessandro

Hi Alessandro, have you checked with your local tech support for Ion?

It takes a bit more work as the Torrent server is a virtual machine so by mounting it on your S5 doesn't automatically make it appear on the Torrent browser.

I would say that a method exists but some degree of familiarity with Linux and virtual machines is required.

Tank you Kevin - I actually fund the way. Important thing, it must be a NTFS formatted disk, otherwise the S5 will not read it, regardless of all your efforts !

Regards,

Alessandro

ext3 is the recommended format in their documentation.

Well, format the disk in ext3, follow the instructions to mount it in the tsvm and .. good luck ! It's absolutely impossible and even the support does not know it .. Then, before throwing the disk against the wall, format it in NTFS, repeat the procedure and let me know how it goes .. They reprogrammed for some obscure reason the USB interface layer. As a consequence, though, writing throught the USB takes forever ...
