You can connect multiple USB device to the LinkStation via a USB hub. However, you must modify 2 files in order to share more than 1 USB disk. The following information details connecting 2 USB disks but can easily be modified to cover any number of disks.
1.) Open the file in a text editor and adjust it to the following:
#!/bin/sh BOOTCHECK=0 MNT_DIR1=/mnt2/usbdisk1 MNT_DIR2=/mnt2/usbdisk2 LOCK1=/var/lock/mount_sd1 LOCK2=/var/lock/mount_sd2 MOUNT_SD1=0 MOUNT_SD2=0 ### check initial devices if [ $# -eq 2] ; then BOOTCHECK=1 fi ### parse usb device info /usr/bin/parse_usbscsi > /dev/null 2>
