    Does anybody use a usb harddisk with advanced format (4k) at the airport?
    Nearly every 1.5TB and all 2.0TB+ harddisks use this format.

    I want to connect a usb-raid-case with 2x2TB disks for backups
    but i'm afraid, maybe the APE (2008) can't use this disks. :(

    Maybe someone already tried new disks as airdisk and can confirm
    that APE is able to use it. :)

    I don't think that the sector size matters in a USB disk. The APE won't interact directly with the disk at all, but rather through the interface that the enclosure provides.
