I am unable to access a folder on my usb flash drive that is attached to the usb port on my Asus router with Peppermint 6 or 7.  I can access the flash drive without any problem with Windows 10.  The P7 system sees the flash drive on the network, and its folders.  It then asks for the password to access it.  I input the router username and password but then the it goes right back to the same screen asking for my username and password.  The top of the screen box says the following: Password required for shared uploads (at sbd1) on rt-n66u-0858.  The screen asks for username, Domain, and password.  Any ideas would be appreciated.  Thanks.  :-\

Does the router allow you to set "guest" or "anonymous" access to the samba shared USB drive .. or set a user/pass for it ?

Here's my router settings screen for the samba shared USB drive .. as you can see, I can either add a user (easiest to use the same username and login as Peppermint), or allow anonymous access (which is probably your best bet).

The only way I can access my flash drive with linux is to tell the asus router to allow guest access.  It works that way.  Otherwise, it will only work with windows.  Not sure why.
