    Did you format it on another PC yet?

    I just tried plugging in my 2TB external into my WRN3500L with tomato, it didn't recognize it either...

    There might be a size limitation somewhere in what they can support...

    UPDATE - For some reason my router won't mount drives automatically (even though its supposed to?) I had to reboot and then it showed the hard drive.

    So yes, a 2TB drive should work... At least it worked for me... ;)
