WNDR4500, USB flash drive, cifs, access from Linux

I am using the venerable WNDR4500 (N900) router.  I inserted a USB flashdrive into its USB port, and am trying to use it for backing up my Linux system, using rsync.  I keep getting errors, so I need help.  I tried:

sudo mount -t cifs -o sec=ntlm, password=my-router-password //192.168.0.1/USB-storage /mnt/Netgear

but I get errors like: permission denied, or: operation in progress (error 115).  The reason for the -t cifs is that the USB flashdrive is from Sandisk, and is formatted as cifs.

Has anyone done it?  Please help!

Model: WNDR4500|N900 Wireless Dual Band Gigabit Router|EOL

Thanks, but my question was not which file types are supported, buut rather it asked for help with  copying files from a linux system to the cifs-formatted USB in the router.  I keep getting errors: "permission denied" when I use rsync, and I cannot mount the USB drive from Linux.
