Unable to Mount GPT NTFS Disk

    Unable to mount NTFS formatted GPT 4TB disk in Tomato. Tried v1.28.7496 MIPSR2-Toastman-RT-K26-USB-Ext as well as v1.28.7500.2 with neither version auto-mounting. Drive was formatted using Vista, verified with Diskpart. NTFS allocation size is 16K.

    Tomato's USB and NAS page indicate "Partition 'sda' (3,726.03 GB) is not mounted". When Mount button clicked: "Failed to mount. Verify the device is plugged in, and try again". I've Googled for the last two days without finding anything specific. I did observe similar requests for GPT NTFS disks met with advise to use a Linux filesystem like Ext3. This is not doable for me at present so please constrain the reply to mounting GPT NTFS disks.

    Thanks for any assistance,

    Could someone with a mounted GPT disk upload a 'print' of their partition table? I've been using 'gdisk' as it appears to be one of the few tools that handle GPT disks.

    I've put the NTFS formatted disk on hold. I reformatted my 4TB disk as ext3 and now am trying to make that work.

    Thanks in advance,
