AR750s MicroSD troubleshooting


#1

HI, I am using an exFat 128GB sandisk Ultra microSD card in the router. I have enabled SAMBA on my mac and windows pc that connect to the router via wireless network and ethernet. I can view the microSD card contents as READ only. I want to be able to write/read to this drive. Is it possible? I am using software 3.002 and the option to enable “share to lan” is not clickable in the AR750s admin panel. I don’t know how to respond to this thread but I have already toggled “writable” option in the settings


#2

You should tick Writable option.


#3

My settings look like this


#4

My preference would be to have anyone be able to access the drive on the network without a username or password


#5

Share on LAN is always enabled. You cannot turn it off.

I think by default it has no username and password.

Can you read and write now?


#6

had to reformat my exfat to ntfs in order to make my microsd writable.
which was a pain since I use a mac.

wish you could look into that, see no reason why exfat should not be writable.


#7

OK. Sure. @kyson-lok pls record this issue.


#8

Thank you! Formatting in NTFS solved the problem. I can now read/write to my microSD from all users on the network. I will try in Ext4 to see if there is increased performance.

NTFS gets me 4 MB/s while trying to write a 5GB file to the microSD. Ext4 gets me only 2 MB/s. Neither of these are close to the write speed of 16 MB/s I can get on the card but clearly NTFS is faster. Odd, because I figured Ext4 would have been native.

On a related topic my ar750 shared network drive in windows explorer has filled up with all my different old microSD names. Same for my Mac finder, it shows old microSD drives I previously inserted and try’s to mount them.

Same for me, seems it creates a mount directory for each card you put in which never gets deleted. I rm:ed them but might not be the best way.
