First, please to restore the standard USB disk mount mode...

With your output, it is amazing that the firmware failed to mount at least sej1

Code: Select all

Jan 16 20:41:11 lacie5big local2.notice sudo:     root : TTY=unknown ; PWD=/ ; USER=root ; COMMAND=/bin/mount -t vfat -o umask=000,codepage=850,iocharset=utf8 /dev/sej1 /share/2000
Jan 16 20:41:11 lacie5big local0.warn API[2016/01/16 20:41:11] exthddfunc_mountUsbRpiHdd.finc(429)[7207]: failed to mount sej1 at /share/2000
What returns the commands

Code: Select all

mkdir /mnt/EFI-1
/bin/mount -t vfat -o umask=000,codepage=850,iocharset=utf8 /dev/sej1 /mnt/EFI-1
same thing with sej2

Code: Select all

mkdir /mnt/ServerBackUp_2
/bin/mount -t hfsplus -o noatime,ro /dev/sej2 /mnt/ServerBackUp_2

Maybe you misunderstand me: you must try the two mount commands specified in my last post .

Note: it is very amazing that now the firmware fails to mount sej1 partition as it is a fat partition :?:

Can you mount that disk using that USB enclosure on another system? Many USB enclosures will use a 4096B sector size when the disk is bigger than 2TiB, to bypass MBR limits for Windows XP.
Nothing /really/ wrong with that, but if the disk was partitioned using another interface (direct sata, for instance), the partition table might be based on 512B sectors. That doesn't fit.

HFS and HFS+ is not suppurted by the 3.14.2 kirkwood kernel #8

Code: Select all

CONFIG_CONFIGFS_FS=m
CONFIG_MISC_FILESYSTEMS=y
# CONFIG_ADFS_FS is not set
# CONFIG_AFFS_FS is not set
# CONFIG_HFS_FS is not set
# CONFIG_HFSPLUS_FS is not set
# CONFIG_BEFS_FS is not set
# CONFIG_BFS_FS is not set
# CONFIG_EFS_FS is not set
Further partition type EF is not same as FAT32 (ID =b or c (with LBA).

So I think the problem is that you try to mount files systems that are not supported by our kernel

@Milzelf

Code: Select all

root@lacie5big:/direct-usb # gdisk -l /dev/sej

Disk /dev/sej: 732558336 sectors, 2.7 TiB
Logical sector size: 4096 bytes

Where did you read this macdalor's feedback

Otherwise, there is something wrong now with your sej1 partition as presviously the firmware can mount it

Code: Select all

mount: /dev/sej1: can't read superblock
And yes fvdw your are right it was the goal of the try to mount manually the sej2 (see if kernel support this fs)

I will recompile the kernel with support for HFS and HFS+ loaded as modules, if they are big. If the modules are small I will included them in the kernel so you don't need to load modules
(will be posted on plugout)

@Jocko

Not too sure what happened here but I can still read my external usb drive fine from the OSX and windows platforms (thx god for that 'cause this is my backup! ;) ). It doesn't seem to have changed in any ways and only started to be hidden once I've installed the last patch; Not sure that can be a lead...

@fvdw
If you can enable support for large HFS and HFS+, well, then it'd be fantastic! :D
