TD-W9970: Formatting external Hard Disk for file sharing in my home network

I have a TP-LINK modem/router TD-W9970, with a USB port.

I want to use an external hard disk into the USB port to share files and movies in my network with DLNA (between computers, smart tv, etc.)


As a home computer I only have MAC.


This is the problem: I read in the settings that this router reads only FAT32 or NTFS formatted hard disks.


- But the FAT32 can not upload movies over 4gb, and I have movies more than 10gb.


- And NTFS is not writable by MAC and I use Mac only ...


What can i do ??? Are there other Hard Disk formats that TD-W9970 can read, though not specified in the settings? Or are there other solutions?


Thank you

9970 seems to support FAT/FAT32/NTFS only... http://www.tp-link.sg/faq-603.html
