What is this aversion to using a PC? At the office we had such a thing and used a netbook since that's under 10 Watts and cheap.
I have an 8tb ProRaid 4 bay hard drive array. It is not a network drive, just an external hard drive array. I have a netgear router that is equipped with ReadyShare, however, ReadyShare does not support a device like my hard drive array, only flash drives and single drive enclosures. That much I figured before I even started. I really don't want to buy a NAS drive, since I already have my ProRaid, and would like to use it. How can I connect my ProRaid up to my network so I can access it from any computer on my network, and possibly from outside my network? Is there some kind of "adapter" that can work as a "middle man" to get my raid array online? My ProRaid connects with a USB 2.0 connection.
I really don't want to share it through a computer on the network, I don't want to have to keep a computer on just to use my array on the network or from outside. I would really like to find a way to get it to work through my router.
Any help would be appreciated!
I'm not entirely sure why the netgear wouldn't detect it, but my guess is probably the size of the drive.
I really didn't have a major problem with using a PC, I just didn't want to. I was just hoping for a simple solution to make that array network accessible without a computer or anything. I was just hoping to hook it into my router with something to get it to work.
