actually i bet that would work, use the ethernet port or usb depending on the type of external harddrive you have, i bet that would work, worth a try... you can always take it back and say it didnt work

Default Re: Wireless Hard Drive

I got an Iomega 320gb network hard drive. Firstly, its only 311gb in size but never mind. I have it plugged into a wireless router via an ethernet cable.

It can play music and video ok. Video was a bit jittery but I have now got a faster router which has sorted that out.

Its fairly quiet, about the size of a hardback book and has a decent metallic finish.

Biggest downsize is the speed at which it writes the data. I have 26gb of music and 20gb of movies, so not that much, but it still took the best part of 12 hours to write all the data from my hard drive. I tried to plug it directly into my computer using the ethernet cable but it wouldnt work.

Anyway now its done, im quite happy with it. Shopped around and got one for 130 which is reasonable.

Overall im happy with it, however, as most movies are almost 1gb in size, it wouldnt take long to fill it up if you had a lot of dvd's you wanted to put on it.

Glad you like it, but speed is more important to me than having a wire there.
