Will it work with Windows 10?
The question is, will Windows 10 work with it?
I’ve only had it about a week and haven’t messed around with it extensively. I have streamed video from it to both a Win10 machine and my Android phone with no real issues.
I bought it to use as a media server while camping and it seems like it’s going to handle that task fine. The wifi signal doesn’t seem to transmit very far but worked fine with adjacent campers/tents about 25 feet away.
One problem I found with mine is that it didn’t recognize FLAC files as media and wouldn’t organize them.
That sort of kills this as a high resolution music storage device.
FLAC files, schmack files…
If you can be satisfied with the fidelity of MP3, Pandyora and Rhapsody you should be okay with this.
Alright, I want to take the SSD out of this, put it in my laptop. Take the 320GB hard drive out of laptop, because it is not solid state, and put it in the Toshiba case.
Am I crazy for trying. Seems like a cheap way to get a 128GB SSD and a wireless portable harddrive (even without solid state).
I can’t find any internal shots of this particular unit, but most external SSD use a custom board rather than a 2.5" drive wrapped in a case with a usb adapter, meaning it wouldn’t be possible.
On top of that, the battery inside probably wouldn’t play nice with the power requirements of a HDD and the controller probably isn’t tuned to spin it up and down in a power efficient manner (if it even uses a 2.5" dive in the first place, it’s most likely a single board with everything integrated together).
Can it save RAW files from my camera?
Not entirely, I just have to do my own organizing. It did allow me to take my Volumio player on the road, access my music library, and allow a tablet to control the music, all without needing any existing WiFi infrastructure, which was exactly what I was looking for.
Will this work with iphone 6 and transfer itunes music, podcast and photes?
I don’t think it’s that much more expensive to get an actual SSD that fits in your laptop and connects to your existing connector. (I’ve replaced the hard drives in three of my computers – laptop, notebook, desktop – with SSDs. Easy peasy.)
A word of warning: If you’re an Android user, you’ll find two apps for this device. One is from Toshiba. Avoid it. Run away, quickly. Don’t EVEN go for a ten-foot pole. The app runs, but it won’t ever recognize the SSD, which kinda defeats the purpose. (At least on my Galaxy S7…) The other app - Wireless SSD for Toshiba, by Power7 - works fine.
