Nighthawk M1 MyMedia support

Hello.

I have tried to open MyMedia with several memory cards formatted as both NTFS and FAT32 of these brands:

THN-M302R0640EA - Toshiba Exceria 64 GB microSDXC

THN-M203K2560EA - Toshiba M203 256 GB microSDXC

SDCAC/16GB - Kingston Action Camera 16GB microSDHC

 

Only the last one worked. So my question is, does the device even support the SDXC-protocol and cards over 32GB in size?

 

Error message:

To use MyMedia, please ensure a compatible micro SD drive or USB is inserted to your router. Only NTFS, HFS+, HFS, FAT32 and FAT16 formatted media is supported.

Device SKU:

MR1110-100EUS

Re: Nighthawk M1 MyMedia support

I got the same probleme but i have a very old firmware so, what is your firmware to compare?

Perhaps it is updated in a newest firmware.

Re: Nighthawk M1 MyMedia support

Firmware version: NTG9X50C_12.02.07.00

 

Btw, my SKU is MR1100-100EUS. The above has a 1-digit too much in the first part of it.

Re: Nighthawk M1 MyMedia support

ok so you have a very new firrmware so probably not linked to a firmware version.

Perhaps you are in the truth, it is a issue with the SD capacity or king of speed

I found a SanDisk Ultra 32GB microSDHC - possibly SDSQUAR-032G-GN6MA but can't confirm - in a drawer at my dad's, and it also works. It's even quite new, because it has an A1 (application class 1) speed rating, so I am more convinced now than ever, that it is because of incompability with microSDXC.

Re: Nighthawk M1 MyMedia support

for now, we have to test it with an SDHC more than 32Go like 64 or 128Go.

We will be fixed.

Re: Nighthawk M1 MyMedia support

For information, the user manual said use sd up to 128 Go so we have to make test with SDHC 128Go. If it work that mean to option, first SDXC is incompatible or seconde option, issue with firmware and probably a fix in a future firmware.

 

Perhaps a NETGEAR member's team could give the good information.

Re: Nighthawk M1 MyMedia support

I found a way to utilize a 400GB SanDisk Ultra MicroSDXC-card (SDSQUAR-400G-GN6MA) in the router by using an old TakeMS MicroSD card reader (TMS-CR-TFL1R) I located in the same drawer as mentioned before, which is supported by the inbuilt USB drivers. As long as the card is formatted correctly, it should work. Tested with NTFS.

Re: Nighthawk M1 MyMedia support

However, it is not stable. At the moment I am not able to read the 400GB card in the card reader on the router after plugging it into an OTG adapter in my tablet, but works in a computer. I removed the previously mentioned MicroSD card from its slot inside the router and plugged the USB back into it after rebooting the firmware. After this switch it worked again.

 

I wish I had access to dmesg (system log files), so I could output what goes wrong, but Netgear apparently doesn't want users to tamper with advanced Linux functionality. Usability and neat UI design shall not be breached.

Re: Nighthawk M1 MyMedia support

Hi Everyone,

 

Have you tried the microSDXC in another format?

The mobile router supports SD cards up to 128 GB in the following formats: FAT, FAT-16, FAT-32, NTFS, HFS, and HFS+.

Please let me know. :]

Re: Nighthawk M1 MyMedia support

Re: Nighthawk M1 MyMedia support

Ok sorry for the mistake. With the firmware 10.25.01.01,  I confirm that SDXC and SDHC work in NTFS with MBR and GPT(GUID) format.

I have tested for fun with EXFAT but it doesn't work in exfat.

i dont have no more than 128Go to test so i don't know if it work with more than 128Go

I could be take some minutes to be readable in the web interface after insertion in the micro sdcard build-in port. If it is not readable, please wait. and for IOS, kill app and restart app.

Re: Nighthawk M1 MyMedia support

Hi MAGADE,

It's fine to make a mistake sometimes. haha

I'm glad that you confirmed for us that it does work in the other formats! :]

 

 

 

Hi KarmusDK,

Please let us know if these formats work for you as well. :]

Re: Nighthawk M1 MyMedia support

Hi.

The TakeMS reader is really some cheap **bleep**, that can easily fall apart. I also had problems with reading the card on Android, but after twisting it a little bit in the socket, I had a better strike of successes. I tried the 400GB card in another USB card reader (DeLock 91648), and it works better.
