Hmm, this is what I got:

-bash: udevd: command not found

So I was wrong, you do not have udev installed and I have no clue.

PS Please don't post the same question in two different threads, this is confusing.

[EDIT] You are not alone, see here

Seems like ext3 is simply not unsupported, thus you will have to either hack your system (good luck, but be careful) or mount manually your drive (which is my best advise).

[EDIT 2] Or simply re-format your drive using a supported file system.

I've already made a post in the WD forum. But as you can see there has been no activity in that thread for quite some time so I don't believe that will get me anywhere.

3 filesystems work automatically on the device. FAT32, NTFS and HFS+. I can't use FAT32 because I need to be able to work with files over 4GB in size. According to all the reading I've been able to do on the internet support for NTFS and HFS+ is spotty on linux. That is why I'd rather use a filesystem that has good support on linux. But apparently as it stands ext3 has to poorest support of all on my system.

Isn't there a way to find out what "happens", what they system does whenever you plug in a usb drive? What script gets executed? I can't debug anything as long as I don't even know what to debug.

Seems like the old fashioned hotplug system is used in your system. Have a look at the content of the /etc/hotplug/ directory and dig . Try to find infos about hotplug scripts for Linux on the www, beginning with this. Of course to begin with read the manual that you should have in your NAS (man hotplug). Good luck.

Meanwile NTFS and HFS+ support in Linux is not so bad nowadays, though this depend on your installed kernel and software (e.g. you will need hfsprogs and/or ntfsprogs).

Well there certainly is a hotplug directory and a whole lot of files in it. Do you think that the responsible script might be in there? I'll try and google hotplug and see what I can find.
