Talk:Connecting to the Internal Disk
Davidwwatts >> I propose that this page be renamed (moved) to "Connecting to the internal disk" to make it more obvious what the page is about. The current title does not accurately describe it and makes it easy to confuse with the topic of connecting the NMT to remote disks. I also propose that the section about connecting to the USB drive to a new page "Connecting to USB-attached media".
Since the page is now named "Connecting to the internal disk" I would suggest to add a note on using the PCH-A110 as USB slave - this might be the most obvious solution to connecting to the disk?!
- maybe USB client is the word i was trying to find ... i thought of connecting to the internal disk by plugging it into a pc as usb client (very trivial, the need for mentioning this arises from ext3 formatted partitions: see forum) --Net-realizer 17:39, 2 March 2009 (UTC)
Davidwwatts >> I don't think "USB slave" is a very clear term - many people won't know what that means. My original idea was to create a page "Connecting to USB-attached media" to describe accessing a USB drive attached to the NMT, but even that was confusing since it could also be read as "how to connect to a USB drive that is on another system. Perhaps we should create a new page "Connecting to USB media attached to the NMT" and put all discussions about it there?
- so what you mean is actually like FTP_Access_Extended_to_External_Drives, but with more options like SMB/CIFS, NFS, UPnP? --Net-realizer 17:39, 2 March 2009 (UTC)
Davidwwatts >> Yes that possible, however this FTP page you refer to is very technical and probably not for the average user. Will average users want to know how to connect remotely to an NMT-attached USB device, or would they just unplug that device (eg memory key) and plug it into their PC/laptop for local access?
