Nighthawk X8 R8500 - I desperately need help adding a USB drive for Readyshare - nothing is working!

Hi!

 

The problem started when I plugged in my 3TB external to the router to see if readyshare works with time machine. Once it DID, I excitedly went to Best Buy to buy a 5TB hard drive.

 

I fornatted it (I'm on a Mac) and it didn't seem to take. After trying everything I could think of for over an hour, I put the 3TB back into the router, and now I can't get THAT to work either.

 

Is there some sort of trick I'm missing? I've reboot the router, I even factory reset it ... I don't know what else to do!

Is the 5tb drive on that routers list of supported drives? Try partitioning the drive to with one 3tb and another 2tb.
