USB Hard Drive max size for Smart Modem Gen 2 (Technicolor DJA0231)

Answered

I have successfully run a 2TB external USB drive on my Technicolor DJA0231 for a while now, until the drive died today.

 

I'd like to purchase a bigger drive for my next one, but need to be sure what size drive the modem is compatible with. I've seen both 2TB and 3TB listed as the max size in these forums, sometimes in the same post.

 

Is there anyone successfully using a 3TB drive as a file share with these modems?

The help file specifies 2TB but I have connected 3 TB hard drives and today connected a 8TB hard drive which also had a 2 TB hard drive plugged into the hard drives built in USB hub. Could copy files to and from computer and between two hard drives.

A printer can also be connected directly or via USB hub.

Cheers for the info.

 

I just wanted to have some level of surety before I headed to Harvey Norman to buy the new drive... Which I am doing now.

3TB drive definitely does work.
