I have a home hub 2 and am trying to connect a western digital external usb to it. I have connected a basic 2gb memory stick to the usb and can access this with no problems however when I plug in the external hard drive and double click the bthub icon I get the following message "windows cannot access \\bthub check the spelling of the name otherwise there might be a problem with your network" does anyone have any suggestions please.

in previous posts your HDD needs to be formatted to FAT32 and not NTFS

Thanks for that but the drive is formatted as fat32 as I had read this in an earlier thread we did it before I posted however my hubby now informs me that he had formatted to exfat so I have done it as I asked him to do and now it works perfectly
