There is a bug with the latest firmware and external 3TB USB drives. The NSA3xx series have beta firmwares that supposedly fix the issue (although people are reporting mixed results) but I don't know whether the new firmware is due to be released on the NSA221. I hope so, as I'm experiencing the same problem myself!

Just to let you know that my external drive seems to be working if I create the volume in EXT3 format. I guess the NTFS implementation must have the bugs.

Worth a shot if you're still having problems.

Spoke a bit too soon - after a reboot the NSA loses sight of the volume. It was also incredibly slow to copy data to the USB drive, although I'm not sure whether that's normal - it took three full days for me to copy just 200GB of data.

I'm going to have to work out some other way of backing up my NAS I think - perhaps I'll try and get the USB port working on my DD-WRT-running router.
