hi all,

 

i want to use my usb stick as a plex server location, i have put it in the back of the router, but dont know how to make it a "drive" like e drive or z drive, so i can add the files on it, to plex.

 

im using windows 10, any help would be greatly appreciated.

 

its a 256gig usb, ntfs format.

Hi @mattafro1 . Have you read the USB storage chapter in the VR1600 manual? The manual is for Win7 but your Win10 Help should help ("map drive"). 

Some users have had problems; either bugs in the firmware or undocumented changes by TPG.
