I have to add a USB for more storage, but my PCH setup with an interval drive formatted in EXT 3.

Do I have to format the EXT 3 too.?

Please some one guide me.?

Hello,

Thanks for your question. Just follow the following steps:

usb 1-1: disconnect USB, address it at 2

usb 1-1: high speed USB device, to use oxnas-ehci and then address 3

usb 1-1: configuration #1 choose from 1 choice

scsi3 : SCSI emulation for USB Mass Storage devices

usb-storage: device will be found at 3

usb-storage: wait for device to set before scanning

Thanks,

Hello as per as I know about the USB (universal storage bus) storage.it has no effect with PCH setup.

No need to format the EXT3. Use it like regular Data traveller of your PC. Although If you want to format  then format it ,It will increase speed but technically it’s not necessary.

Hi,

As I can see you are using Linux and to add any storage device, it needs to have a filesystem and in order to do that, you need to create partitions and need to format the storage disk with ext3 file system. To format a Linux partition you can use this command
mkfs -t ext3 -v -L usbdisk /dev/sdb1
