I have same problem. In Snake 1.20. The Hard Disk is a Samsung HD154UI 1,5 tb size. The hard disk is formated normally, but wont mount.

I have a 3TB (2.7) with 4 partions. (WD By Book) In ssh to snake fdisk -l reports...

The 1st seems fine, the 4th mounted but gave errors list directories, and then when brought back to debian needed an fsck to fix something. I am using snakeos-V1.3.2-20101130-from-original.bin. My little 320GB hard disk is fine. Thanks for you time. Nev

Same problem: BusyBox v1.18.5 (2011-10-19 23:26:11 CEST) built-in shell (ash) Enter 'help' for a list of built-in commands. # fdisk -l Disk /dev/mtdblock0: 0 MB, 262144 bytes 255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 0 cylinders Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes Disk /dev/mtdblock0 doesn't contain a valid partition table Disk /dev/sda: 1500.3 GB, 1500301910016 bytes 255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 182401 cylinders Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System /dev/sda1 * 1 182401 1465136001 83 Linux The snake print: Device Vendor Model Size Action sda ST1500DL 003-9VT16L 1048575 MB

#3 That looks like one of those new 4k or "advanced format" drives. I guess the kernel doesn't know how to handle those. #4 The fdisk output doesn't look that off. Can you try to format the disk on another computer? Temporarily using an usb stick as swap disk while formating may work too. mkfs.ext3 likes to run out of memory on large disks. The snake output is unusual. The value is calculated by dividing /sys/block/sda/size (number of 512 byte blocks (I guess 4096 for newer drives)) by 2048. I can't imagine how it got to that bumber.

You need to compile the kernel with GPT partition support so that it can understand 4k block size.

I have this same issue with a 4TB hardrive USB. Someone with some solution already?

I have the same issue with a USB 3TB Seagate drive after a Snake OS Format. Also only have about 700MB total space. But I can see it as share in WIN 7 network when its connected to NAS. Now I can't see the drive in WIN 7 explorer now. So I can't format in WIN 7. Any way of re-formatting the USB drive back to NTFS? Peter
