Ext3 or Ext4.

Re: External USB3.0 filesystem

Hi,

 

Just want to chime in here. I tried xfs which doesn't work at all. With ext4 I had all kinds of problems with playback. Some files played, most didn't. With ext3 it all seems to work well. I think Netgear need to modify their filesystem support list here: http://kb.netgear.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/24059/~/what-are-the-usb-drive-requirements-for-my-nig... and remove xfs and maybe ext4 even.
