HowTo: mount a USB hdd in Debian and share it for all users without authentication

All these I needed to do on my RaspberryPI so that I can share a mounted USB drive to the entire network and to be accessible fully without any authentication. I know, not very smart, but try to configure a TV, 2 iPads, 1 iPhone, 1 Android and one Internet radio to access it.   My USB Hdd is /dev/sda1 and it is mounted on /media/usb   /etc/samba/smb.conf security = share guest account = nobody [media] comment= Media read only = no path = /media guest ok = yes browseable = yes public = yes guest only = yes guest account = nobody   /etc/fstab /dev/sda1 /media/usb ntfs noatime,users,uid=0,gid=0,fmask=0111,dmask=0 0 2   Note: This will allow all rights on the /media/usb to all users. Don’t forget to restart the system or the services.

Conceptronic CHD3LAN NAS Server

I bought from eBay a brand new Networked Attached Storage server without HDD for 51 euro. Cheap and nice toy.. but … The company from which I bought it, advised me to upgrade the firmware via the web interface. And I did, poor me 🙁 Needless to say that the box is dead now. During the upgrade, I got a timeout from the box and since then it just didn’t work. I wrote to the support of Conceptronic and followed their advice, but without success. Still trying.
