I have a Buffalo WZR-HP-G300NH and a 3TB Western Digital MyBook Essential that I wish to use as a NAS, I have formatted the drive with a single XFS partition, but when I plug it into the router the Disk Management page says "No identifiable partitions."

Any help would be greatly appreciated

Just to check: you're using the stock firmware (which is claimed to support XFS) and your drive has a GPT partition table and the partition works fine under *nix? – Oct 22 '11 at 22:23
Hello, yes, I have used Ubuntu to format it, and it works fine in that using GPT/XFS – vassie Oct 23 '11 at 6:15
I am also using FW 1.77 – vassie Oct 23 '11 at 6:31

Buffalo have since confirmed that this router only supports external drives up to 2TB.
