The WD World Book 2nd edition (vertical white light) supports the addition of an external USB drive or flash to copy files. Out-of-the-box support is only for FAT, FAT32 and HFS and linux EXT3 are supported for the automagic mount and share provided by the firmware. You can still view and manually mount NTFS filesystems.
When using version 01.00.14 firmware, you can add full support for NTFS with a very simple change to the firmware.
1. Login to the box using SSH as root. (You can find instructions how to enable ssh on the Getting Started page.
2. At the root shell problem, type:
echo "ntfs" >> /etc/filesystems
3. That's it, you should now be able to simply plug an external NTFS drive into your USB port and have it show up in a few seconds as a new share called 'usb1-1share1'. This should also allow you to use the file interface and copy data between the internal and external drives.
FYI, the above is superseded by "01.00.16 with MioNet 184.108.40.206" firmware. After you plug an NTFS-formatted disk, it'll be recognized and mounted automatically via Fuseblk - so you can write as well…
