    TD-W9970: Formatting external Hard Disk for file sharing in my home network

    Model :

    Hardware Version :

    Firmware Version :

    ISP : [/COLOR]

    I have a TP-LINK modem/router TD-W9970, with a USB port.

    I want to use an external hard disk into the USB port to share files and movies in my network with DLNA (between computers, smart tv, etc.)

    As a home computer I only have MAC.

    This is the problem: I read in the settings that this router reads only FAT32 or NTFS formatted hard disks.

    - But the FAT32 can not upload movies over 4gb, and I have movies more than 10gb.

    - And NTFS is not writable by MAC and I use Mac only ...

    What can i do ??? Are there other Hard Disk formats that TD-W9970 can read, though not specified in the settings? Or are there other solutions?

    Thank you

    9970 seems to support FAT/FAT32/NTFS only... http://www.tp-link.sg/faq-603.html
