Default Asus RT-N66U, can not mount usb drive?

My router sees the usb drive but it just says "not mounted". I can not find any way to mount it either!?!?

This used to work a month ago but it was not this particular usb drive. The drive I am trying is a standard Verbatim usb drive and it is ntfs-formatted.

Pressing the green USB symbol only shows an empty box?

I have restarted the router and the latest firmware.

Any suggestions on what is wrong?

Check the system log for any error message. If it's a large drive, it's possible that the filesystem is flagged as dirty, and it's taking a long time running a chkdsk on it. You could try plugging it back on your PC, running chkdsk on it, then plugging it back to the router.

Did you try my previous suggestion about fixing the filesystem on a PC before plugging it back to the router? Also if it's a portable hard drive, it's possible it's not getting enough power from the USB port to properly power itself - that's a frequent issue when plugging such drives to small devices like routers and media players. You might need to plug an external AC adapter to your hard drive then.

somehow after formatting my WD a couple of times (eventually back to its NTFS default), and plugging unplugging a blank USD thumdrive to the back of the router (which mounts with zero issue),

my WD finally mounted! Thanks RMerlin for the advice

Default same issue here

I am having the same issue with my 2.5 usb enclosure with 64GB SSD. It was working fine. I unplugged it today and tried plugging back in and it no longer mounts in the router. I tried quick formatting it few times and same problem...any advice? I am running the latest version of Merlin's Frimware 3.0.0.4.372.31...

This is what I see in my logs...I am hoping someone can shine some light on this...

Hi,

The USB error -32 is most probably it’s a result of hardware failure rather than a driver or kernel bug. USB has an over-current protection, which gets triggered when power consumption from the port is too high.

Unplug all USB devices from the router, turn power off, and wait a minute or two. Plug everything back and boot the router freshly.

Then we will see if the error comes back...

With kind regards
Joe

Thanks for your advice Joe. I really appreciate your help. I went ahead and unplugged all usb devices form my router. I then unplugged the power and turned the router back on with power cable out. I saw a quick flash on the LED's which meant the remaining power had drained. I left router in this state for about a minute, plugged in the power and turned the router back on. When it booted back up I tried plugging in my external enclosure with 64GB SSD but the drive is still not being seen by the router. I am using an external power adapter to my enclosure so that my USB port on the router is not underpowered .Strangely my basic 64GB usb stick is working fine on both ports....I am honestly out of ideas here as this enclosure used to work fine few days ago and stopped after a big file transfer. My main concern is to figure out if this is a software or a hardware issue. The same external enclosure is working fine on Windows 7 machine...

Here is the fresh log output:

Default Asus RT-N66U, can not mount usb drive?

I have the same issue.

I am using a Crucial 128GB SSD in a NexStar CX USB 3.0 case. The router recognizes the drive but will not mount it. Nothing appears in the logs other than the normal stuff. There isn't even a reference to the USB in the logs even though the router recognizes the drive and states that is not mounted.

The drive has no content on it, but it has been newly formatted as an NTFS volume and my Win8 computer works with the drive without issue. The router disk utility has also been run on the drive without any errors reported.

What's up?

Michael
