BrumeW's tf card mount at strange place, also how to make use the 8GB emmc? thx


i got a brumeW + 8GB tf card, i use youtube-dl and wget to dnld videos and webpages.
I wanna share it out as samba so I can use windows’s explorer’s copy/paste (becoz then i
can use teracopy to verify the file).

but brumeW’s tf mount point is not the same as I found on website.
(ntfs formatted)
my tf is mount at

/mnt/Microsoft Basic Data
root@GL-MV1000:/mnt/Microsoft Basic Data#

instead of the /dev/sda? as mentioned in the manual.

also, i don’t know where is the 8GB emmc of burme located.

root@GL-MV1000:/# df -h
Filesystem Size Used Available Use% Mounted on
/dev/root 20.0M 20.0M 0 100% /rom
tmpfs 499.5M 756.0K 498.7M 0% /tmp
/dev/loop0 490.3M 175.3M 217.0M 45% /overlay
overlayfs:/overlay 490.3M 175.3M 217.0M 45% /
tmpfs 512.0K 0 512.0K 0% /dev
df: /mnt/Microsoft\040Basic\040Data: No such file or directory
/dev/mmcblk0p3 6.6G 1.1G 5.1G 18% /data

^-- i guess is the /dev/mmcblk0p3?
then how the hell I can share this as a samba?
the manual didn’t mention, also when i install plugins, it
keep telling me i have only xx MB, clearly the plugins are not
installing to this /data. then what’s the use of this 8GB emmc?

thank you.

You need to share /data



no such option in my brumeW!

(2) is the /mnt/ folder i listed the correct path to my ntfs 8GB tf card?
it’s not the same as in the manual!

btw, my setup is brumeW,

i dont want to upgrade unless necessary, thanks

You can just ssh to the router and edit /etc/config/samba

It is easier to use LuCI to set up file sharing:

You can also change the mount point from /data to another name (avoid using blanks) via LuCi → System → Mount Points.

I do not work for and I do not have formal association with GL.iNet


i shd have been using an very old version rom as I order brumeW in pre-order period, then 3.203, then NOW v3.105,

v3.203 no ffmpeg.

the very old version’s samba sucks. (i see it’s corrected in some later versoins).

now v3.105 is ok.
there IS ffmpeg, and samba works.

it’s troublesome but with support from the forum, and the efforts of GL inet,
so far i am satisfied with GL inet products.
