Accessing USB drive on Home Hub 3 from Linux Mint

Hi,

 

I'm pretty new to Linux and am just trying out Mint on an old desktop. All is going fine except I can not access the external drive I have plugged into my Homehub 3.

 

If I use Dolphin (the file manager) to browse the network I can see a shortcut to 'Samba shares' from here I can go to 'Workgroup' but only my Win7 laptop and the Dell machine I am browsing from are listed.

 

There is an option to 'Add network folder' where I can select: "WebFolder(webdav)", "FTP", "Microsoft Windows netowrk drive", "Secure shell (ssh)" but I do not know the configuration details for any of these.

 

Can anyone help me to create/mount my USB network drive?

 

Thanks in advance.

Thanks. Though, not sure that was entirely what I was looking for.

 

Though, if I did want to access via ftp, what login details would I use?

 

thanks.

come on, I can't believe that no one knows the answer to this.

 

I'd just like to be able to browse my external HDD from Linux. There must be an easy way to do this.

You would probably be better off asking in one of the Linux newsgroups. Alt.os.linux.mint or Alt.os.linux.ubuntu.
