After a few failed connections, once I'd managed to connect to its web interface setting it up was fairly straightforward. Being a fairly primitive Samba server setup you have to format it through the device, and sharing a folder seems to work well (if a little unintuitively to us non-Linux users!). The only downside appears to be that it formats the drive as FAT32, which means I won't be able to share files larger than 4GB. This has not been a problem so far, but I do have some extremely large files on my server which will obviously have to stay on there.
It also has a built-in BitTorrent client and FTP server so you can apparently download torrents automatically (not of much use to me as I seldom use that). The FTP server is a useful facility though, as I used to have one running on my server before it got too expensive to keep on all the time, so that I could access files from work.
All-in-all, were it not for the FAT32 problem I would have given it 5 stars, but otherwise it's just what I needed!
The product only supports FAT32, but at the price I would not mark it down for that.
Where I have had problems is in the following areas:
1. I can create shares OK, but I can only read them from My Windows 7 PC, My other devices can see the drive (PS3, XBOX etc) but say the folders are empty, even though I have put suitable small video clips in the right folders, shared properly etc.
2. My Android device could see the device on the LAN, now it cannot. Yet other devices still do.
3. FTP and SMB seem to have some problem
4. My NAS can also not see the device unless I set up as external FTP and then it still can't write to it.
5. The shares seem to lose their permissions - I can access, then I can't, then I can again. The password is accepted then not accepted, then I get an error message and then it appears OK again with no intervention. I have taken all passwords off and still get some issues.
Overall, this device will not allow me to do what I want with it. It will allow me to have a USB drive on the network I have tried all manner of things and it won't do any more than that, which is a shame.
I am going to have to reset the device and start again, but I have already spent hours trying to get this to work and I think it is buggy and unreliable.
The set up is fairly simple, would pay to have some networking knowledge, but the instructions are very well laid out and simplistic.
there were a couple of things that caught me out, but they're fairly simple to comprehend, again the manuals really are very useful.
Excellent little product, It hasn't failed me once and i've had it running since i bought it
but i can't get any upnp clients on my ipod to access mp3s on it... have tried a bunch of them (MLPlayer lite, DKPlayerFree, AceMusic). Anyone got any clues?
If your drive's fat32 already you don't need to reformat it, just move all the files you want into PUBLIC.
torrent client doesn't have time scheduling so i can't confine it to night times when my bandwidth is unmetered :(
I brought a 320GB HDD and this for a total cost of £68...
So I have been able to access content from my XBOX360, IPAD, Laptops.... Whala.. Cheap as chips!!
Some hints and tips :
1) In order to get the Media server service working, create 3 directories "Photos", "Videos", "Pictures" within the "Guest" account.
2) Under the media services menu make sure you share those directories.
3) Data transfer to the NAS drive can be slow, so I would recommend (when you have done steps 1-2), to disconnect the USB drive from the nas adapter and copy all your files into the right directories from via a laptop (with the USB drive plugged in) and thne re-attach it to the NAS adapter. It will save you a whole load of time.
- If you have an xbox360 - you can stream video, pictures and music via the NAS to your xbox360
- Simple interface with user/directory security
- Its cheap and does what it says on the tin.
- Only supports FAT32
- Does not support DLNA
- Can be a bit slow sometimes
- No resliance
