D-Bay NAS?

Discussion in 'Dell' started by William P. N. Smith, Jul 3, 2005.

  1. I'd like to put some of our D-Bay hard drives directly on the LAN,
    using one of the NAS boxes that are available. I _think_ I can use a
    Linksys NSLU2
    http://linksys.com/products/product.asp?grid=35&scid=43&prid=640 which
    does NAS for USB drives, plus an external D-Bay adapter
    http://accessories.us.dell.com/sna/...=us&l=en&cs=04&category_id=2999&page=external
    plus some kind of power supply for the high-power connection on the
    above, yaddah, yaddah, yaddah.

    Anyone know any reasons why this shouldn't work? Is the 'high power
    USB" connector on the External Media Bay just a way of getting more 5V
    power to the drive?

    Thanks!

  2. Oops:

    IMPORTANT: The Storage Link's format
    is NOT compatible with Windows. You
    cannot swap USB hard drives between
    Windows systems and the Storage Link.

    Anyone know of a NAS device that'll take external USB hard drives in
    FATnn and NTFS and make them available on the network?

    Thanks!
