Installed the new firmware on an N4B2N, now I'm in trouble ... Help!

I work for a video production company and convinced them to buy an N4B2N to support our Macs, e.g. TimeMachine, and data; it's populated with 4 2TB, 7200 RPM hard drives configured as Raid 5.

Before upgrading, I backed up 1.5 TB, via e-SATA, to a 2 TB hard drive.

After upgrading, the Macs now work with TimeMachine, but I can't figure out how to move the data back. There doesn't appear to be any support for e-SATA or USB attached hard drives in the new firmware.

There was nothing in the release notes regarding changes to e-SATA and USB hard drive support.

I'm in a bind: If I re-install the old firmware, then no TimeMachine support, but I can move the data back. If I remain on the new firmware, then there is TimeMachine support, but I can't move the data back.

Anyone have any ideas?

When I plugged my external hard drive in the NAS recognized it right away. I was then able to use my computer to simply copy from the external to the NAS.

Answer: 
I apologize, but to what iPhone App are you referring? It seems that, in order to resolve such a situation, it would be necessary to consult the instructions provided for that iPhone App. If you have additional questions, please contact our Customer Interactive Center at 800-243-0000.

Answer: 
I find very agravating when you ask a specific question and get an inadequate answer...
Following the answer you recieved, I bought 4 x 3TB hard drives (WD30EURS-63R) to put in one of these and although the NAS recognize them as having a capacity of 2.73TB, it will create a volume of only 1.96TB per drive.
In Raid 5 configuration, the size of the volume is only 5.87TB and I am not happy about this.
The firmware of my NAS is the latest available: 2682.625

So I will ask the question in another way and hope to get the proper answer:

Is this NAS able to use the full capacity of hard drives exceeding 2TB?
If not, will it soon be a firmware upgrade allowing this NAS to use the full capacity of drives exceeding 2TB?

Answer: 
Almost any SATA (Serial ATA) drive will work. To see what sizes are currently being used, open the Web Interface. Click System and then Volume. Click the check box next to your drive volume and then click Edit. The model and capacity of each drive will be listed.

The performance/size will follow the slowest/smallest drive. We recommend you use the same size drives (250, 500, or 1TB) , but they do not have to be the exact same models.
