shame it's not sata, still, seems an OK deal.

I was working on the thought that most of us must have a few IDE drives laying around unused and this would generate a use for them.

Only FAT 32 not NTFS so it'll only format a shade under 40GB without some 'tweeks' :-(

A little prog called "fat32format" will format a 500GB drive in around 10 seconds

I imagine you could use an IDE>SATA adapter, people do that with the older IDE Linkstations

yeah not strickly true, Fat32 supports up to 2TB so slighlty more than "a shade under 40GB", it is true that the vista and xp will only format fat32 upto 32GB but there are plenty of free untilities out there that will format way beyone the windows 32gb limit so the fact that it only supports fat32 should not be a real factor when voting this hot/cold. What i would say though is that fat32 does only support a file size of a max size of 4gb so if your planning on putting HD movies on whatever drive you put in it then this probably wont be the best solution

these svp.co.uk/pro…512 were offered 2 for 1 last week. dunno if they are any good

boffer.co.uk had these one,s with 160Gb hd about a week ago for about £28.00 i think but only for one day . cant see why there,s 40Gb limit if they were running with 160Gb drives .Just looked in my history they were for sale on mon 8th dec and were £29.99 with 160Gb drives they sometimes repeat there offers so may be back on sale again

If you have windows xp or vista then when you right click on the drive, choose format and select fat32 the max capacity it will allow is 32gb, i think any other os willl let you format fat32 upto 2tb or like said previously you can download a formatting utility that will format to the 2tb

just use the command line format.exe and not do it on windows desktop to format it works ok for me in xp think it works in vista if you use command line .The boffer drive is prob allready formatted so no problem (unless you need to re format) dont think you need any utilty prog,s to format large drives.Most of these N.A.S drives are fat32 i dont know why maybe for compatabilty but NTFS is lot better for large drives still fat32 alot better than orig fat in msdos 32mb ??? so we cant complain

Supports DHCP server and DHCP client through its 10/100Mbps Ethernet port

So should be networkable.

Bought one of these from Maplin a few months ago. £60 inc a 250gb HDD, works fine with xp pro over a wireless connection, but cannot get vista to recognise it. No USB either.
