I have two questions:
1. My NSLU2 has broken down and I can't get access to the data on the EXT3-formatted USB-harddisc, formatted by the NSLU2. It has something to do with user-rights.
I'd like to save this data to another (NTFS)USB-disc. Any suggestions how this can be done?
2. I have ordered a new NSLU2. When I connect this EXT3-Usbdisc, will I be able to get access to this data, like before ?
Solved! Go to Solution.

Found the answer on the first question: I downloaded from Sysinternals the Linux Reader for Windows, installed it on my Vista notebook, connected the EXT3-usbdrive to my notebook and I was able to read AND SAVE the data from this disc to another (NTFS)harddisc. Very easy. All my data are available again and can be used like before.
My second question; I will see what happens, my data are accessable again so it's not so important anymore.

I can't access my usb drive using NSLU2
I can't see my drive in web browser of NSLU2
NSLU2 states that there is no drive connected
and so on
if you already had NSLU2 working on your network and already had harddrives connected and formatted: plus already had files on the drive and can't access it now. Check the LED's on the NSLU2 does it show lights on the drives? if not look at your external usb drive: if it has lights are they solid or flashing. If your external hard drive has lights that are solid it means your drive is not being accessed. I have learned through trial and error of removing unaccessible drives and reformatting them: PLEASE DONT DO THIS! Don't Panic! I have found a work around. IF you still use the V2.3R63 firmware which is the NSLU2 firmware from linksys this might work for you too.
Hope this helps a lot of you.
