All the NAS I used from my PCs or 360 didn't care what the underlying file system was. The file on the NAS was sent over and the PC/360 just can't know if it's on a FAT or other file system.
So if your unit is the unit at http://www.legitreviews.com/article/998/1/ can you reveal why you would change the file system?
Total networking newbie here. That aside; I have a My Book 2TB World Edition II which I purchased for basically music, videos and pics only. I purchased this one specifically as it said that it would stream videos to my PS3 (and I gotta smokin deal on it). I've read that I'll need to format it to FAT32 (whatever that is) for the PS3 to recognize it. I also want to be able to stream stuff to my laptop wirelessly too. I also don't have high speed internet as it's so expensive where I live (dsl and cable internet not available here) if that matters. What I need is a good/fast router that won't bottleneck when I'm tryin to wirelessly stream to my ps3 (via dlna, whatever that is) and to my laptop. It would also be nice, but not necessary, that it be easy to setup. Also, once the NAS is set to FAT32, will my laptop be able to read it too? I basically am turning the NAS into a media station for all my media needs; just accessed wirelessly....tips, tricks, tips??? Oh yeah, the router will probably be in the same room as the PS3 and one room and wall away from my laptop....until we move, hahaha. Any opinions on good routers for this application? Anyone already doing this with their PS3????
