XBOX can see my files
I got one of these and it didn't work. Tech support RMA'ed it. The second one works pretty good. I can download MP3's and movies to my mod'd XBOX from it. The firmware is old and needs updating but they don't have it on the website yet. I read it has been missing for a while. Sometimes the web interface dies so no config changed can be made without rebooting. The manual shows great pictures on how to hook it up but not much else. The utils are OK for finding the linkstation but the fonts have some issues. If sleep mode is enabled then you can't backup ever. Sleep mode does not know about weekends so its pretty much useless anyway. The manual is very poor. Like how do I replace the drive if it crashes? When you get a drive from buffalo (a drive station) it still has to be formatted or it just doesn't work for backup or storage. Now shouldn't the manual tell you that. How do I restore backup data from the external backup drive? Why back it up if I can't restore it. I think it needs a few more firmware revisions before it is good and sombody needs to get on the manual. But it does store my data for now. Hopefully I can get new firmware soon.
