Hub1 USB Restrictions

Hi. Are there some restrictions which apply to the type of USB Flash Drive you can use with the Hub 1? I want to use a 64G stick, but the hub won't recognize it. It works fine with a 2G and 8G stick, but not the bigger one. I thought there must be a maximum size limitation, but I plugged in a 250G USB HDD, and that works perfectly!

How is the USB stick formatted?

According to the hub's online help it supports FAT16, FAT32 & NTFS.

I must have been really bad in a previous life. This is my 3rd ISP in a row that uses lithium.

Yes there are restrictions on the USB port, if you do a search on BT Home Hub 5 USB you will get more information, the Hub 1 is based on the HH5.

Thanks for the reply. It's formatted exFAT, so maybe that's the problem (althoigh I thought the other ones I tried were exFAT also). I'll ttry re-formatting to NTFS
