I just got the ASUS RT-N16 router so that I could connect my external HDD to it and use it as a NAS. The external HDD I'm speaking of is one that I've been using to backup files and I store my iTunes library on there. When I plug in the external HDD to the RT-N16 the router software tells me it's attached, but it's unmounted. When I click on the external HDD it gives me no option to mount it. So I have 2 questions:

1) How do I mount the external HDD that's attached to the router?
2) I read somewhere that the HDD needs to be in "ext3" format? Does that mean I have to reformat my HDD, thereby erasing all its contents, to do this?

I've spent the better part of 4 hours trying to figure this out. Any help would be greatly greatly appreciated.

I'm at the point where I'm about to return this router. Any suggestions on how to fix this problem? Thanks!
