SMB NAS for 2 HDDs? –
(Note to Moderators: Posted this in the IDE HDD section the other day but have received no replies, felt someone here might be able to help. Feel free to remove either one if no replies)
Currently I have my HDD in my PS2, but with the PS3 release coming up I've been thinking about how its going to effect how I look/listen to all the media I have stored on it. I've been thinking about getting some sort of NAS enclosure for my HDD so that I can have one console in the lounge and the other in a different room sharing the HDD over the network.
I've been copying my CD collection to the HDD and am starting to run out of space so was thinking that the new NAS enclosure should have room for two HDDs. Are there any compatibility issues I need to be aware of when choosing a HDD enclosure.
As I use programmes like SMS a lot which has SMB support I've been looking at enclosures that support SMB, but do I need that? Are there any perticular manufacturers any one woulf recommend or warn against? Am I going to have to reformat the HDD or can I continue to use the HDLoader formated HDD as is once its in the NAS enclosure?
Many thanks in advance
