I bought recently a wl-500gp and attached a 300 GB external HDD through the USB port which was detected fine and where i followed the WL-500g Premium How to Part One (http://wl500g.info/showthread.php?t=5909) tutorial. But for some reason, I stop having access to my HDD even when I reboot the router with/out USB HDD cable attached wouldn't recognise giving me this message on the routers system log

Jul 21 22:06:14 kernel: hub.c: new USB device 01:03.2-2, assigned address 5
Jul 21 22:06:14 kernel: usb.c: USB device not accepting new address=5 (error=-71)

My external HDD is formated in linux type partition and a swap one.

As anyone having this kind of dificulties with external harddrives ? I read something about spindown your external HDD is that what I have to do and how ? Thanks
