Error making EXT3 filesystem on the USB device

Re: Error making EXT3 filesystem on the USB device

4.2.28 beta is available now (viewtopic.php?f=51&t=70385)

This problem looks like the "divide by 0" issue fixed in T5. If so, the beta fix was available last February.

Re: Error making EXT3 filesystem on the USB device

Given that the Beta 4.2.28 seems to be in development/test for several years now, is there a chance that it will make it into production stage?
Some of us are not so keen on using beta firmware, even if it fixes one critical issue; maybe it opens up several others...

Re: Error making EXT3 filesystem on the USB device

They edit the beta announcements instead of creating new ones - so the initial posting date is not when the beta started (which was January 2015). So its not years... I've been running it for quite a while, and found it to be stable.

Netgear generally won't pre-announce their release plans, so the production date is anyone's guess.

Re: Error making EXT3 filesystem on the USB device

I had the same fault adding a new internal volume on my NAS.

 

While the fix from mdgm worked, and thankyou for that, its really fustrating that it took a good bit of googling to find the answer and I've disposed of a disk that I suspect was perfectly fine as I couldn't get it to create a file system... Perhaps serious faults such as not being able to create new volumes should have a bot more publicity about them...
