Really tater???

Only for win3.x compatibility??? Ever worked in a networked environment?

I have worked for several, and one thing remains true: "end users are dumb"... mapped drives gives them something they can easily understand and work with. Mapping a drive doesnt expose the root of the drive either, mapping a drive is assigning a drive letter to a folder (plain and simple). Always has been!

totalguy: What format does your NAS use for the drives?

ive never worked in a network environment and i aint dumb lol

what you say about mapping is right in my case.

by format do you mean file system? fat32. can only use ntfs if i plug it directly into a computer via usb but that would defeat the purpose of a nas drive then

First off, those comments were directed at tater, not you totalguy.

Yes file system is what I meant here... wow FAT32 is what it uses, not a linux file system? Most NAS's Ive worked with used linux ext3 or simlar... hmmm!

Since it is FAT32 have you tried running Windows utilities such as scandisk?

i cant run anything on it as a 'nas drive' i have to plug it into a computer directly via usb to do anything like that. ive run a long generic seagate tools test it showed 1 bad lba so i run it again and chose to fix it that time. the original problem only appears when its as a 'nas drive' so its either a bug in windows or the software on the nas drive (firmware) im thinking.

did a bit of searching on the net and found the site Computer parts - B2becart.com --- B2becart Developers i used their contact us form to request firmware update. i was on version 1.43 but now on 1.51c theres been a lot of changes! so for future reference and anyone coming accross this thread if you have a pluscom nas enclosure model NAS-RDC3282 (or any similar for that matter) visit the site i mentioned and request a firmware update. its easy to do, if you got one of these you should be familiar with it and able to access its control panel. goto maintainance and upload the .bin file. dont worry if its the wrong one you have it will tell you and it only takes seconds to do then reboot it and remap it.
