formatting Advanced Format (4k sector) drives in the N2R1 ?
What is the procedure for using advanced format drives in the N2R1? LG documentation states that the device uses Linux Kernel 2.6. To paraphrase a major HD manufacturer, "the Linux kernel has had specific support for the alternate sector sizes and offsets used by..." "... Advanced Format disk drives since version 2.6.31. However, distributions based on Linux 2.6.34, the latest stable version of Linux, will provide the most thorough support. Advanced Format parameters are available in the sysfs file system from this kernel version onwards. Kernel versions older than 2.6.31 will not specifically detect Advanced Format Drives, but with proper alignment the system performance will be maintained. "
Is the LG version of the kernel older that 2.6.31 ? How can you perform the alignment, check the alignment?

According to the specifications listed on our website, this unit utilizes an embedded Linux Kernel, version 2.6, and supports Linux Redhat9, Ubuntu, and Suse. Unfortunately, we do not have support for the advanced format drive, since the kernel is older. There is currently no ETA for an update to this Kernel.
