I apologize but you can not use this print server to share USB drives. This print server can only allow you to share printers.

I believe this answers your query.

Ethernet to USB Print Server for canon MP610 multifunction


Hi,
The MP610 is a GDI printer (which lacks intelligence to convert the page into dots on the page, and uses the Windows graphics engine instead). These printers are inherently hard to network. Often the only way is to share them via a PC. Below link has a driver that's claimed to work with Win 8. Alternatively, you could try the Win 7 driver on the Win 8 machine.

http://support-au.canon.com.au/contents/AU/EN/0100012601.html
If you want to use a printserver, you need to make sure it supports your printer. For each printserver, go to the manufacturer's website. There should be a list of supported printers for each printserver. If the list is not there, or if your printer is not in the list, you must assume that it will not work.
Scanning will almost never work with any printserver

I have the Lacie Minidisk Ethernet 500 GB that contains all my house PC backup. I both an USB Minidisk Lacie (1 GB) in order to use MySafe feature but it never worked.


Hello Elio,

Use MySafe to back up the files stored on the Ethernet Disk mini Home to an attached USB storage device. This way, if files on the Ethernet Disk mini are damaged or accidentally deleted, you can restore them to their original locations.
There are three main steps to using MySafe,Connecting an external USB hard drive,Backing up files to the external USB hard drive,Restoring files to the Ethernet Disk mini (if necessary)
Before you can back up files, you need to connect a hard drive to your Ethernet Disk mini via the USB port on the back. Use a hard drive that is USB 2.0 compatible.
While connecting an external hard drive make sure your Ethernet Disk mini is turned on and connected to your network.Turn on the external USB hard drive.Connect the external hard drive's USB cable to the USB port on the back of the Ethernet Disk mini, just like you would connect the external hard drive to your computer.Confirm that the drive is properly connected. Log in and click on the Administer HipServ link. Click on USB External Storage under System.
To back up files, navigate to the file or folder you want to back up to the external hard drive and click on the disk icon in the "Backup" column of the file list.When you back up files to MySafe, the Ethernet Disk mini duplicates the file path in MySafe so that everything you back up is organized in MySafe just as in its original location. So, if you copy a file from MyLibrary, a MyLibrary folder will appear in MySafe, with all folders leading to the backed up file.

Always click the Safely Remove Drive button on the USB External Storage before unplugging your MySafe external hard drive. Wait for the interface to change and for the Use Drive button to appear before disconnecting the USB cable from the Ethernet Disk mini. Failure to safely remove your external hard drive before disconnecting the USB cable can cause data loss and/or damage the drive. Always use the Safely Remove Drive feature when disconnecting an external hard drive.

Not a good idea.

Maxtor one touch 4 mini 250GB hard drive beeping


I had the same problem and the Maxtor/Seagate website did not have any solutions. I finally got in touch with Tech Support and got a fix. I was using it with a Dell tower and plugging into a USB port in the front. I also was using an after market cable.

I learned the Maxtor is a power hog and beeps and shuts down when it is not getting enough power. I did not know but the USB ports on the front of a desktop/tower computer do not provide as much power as a port on the back (the back ports are sometimes directly connected to the motherboard). I got a USB extension cable and connected it to a USB port in the back and it solved the problem.

I also learned that most laptop USB ports are not powerful enough to run the Maxtor. Mine would also not work if you attempt to share it by using an unpowered USB hub. I have gotten it to work with a powered desktop USB hub (Belkin).

I believe that this may explain why you get a "Y" cable with the drive. I could not find an explaination for the cable or how to use. There may be an accessory to purchase that attached to the cable and powers it.

I have a shared folder with files in it. I disabled one share, then the rest of the shared folders went gone. how will I recover the data in it?


Hi sej_nb5,

A shared folder is only a way to access data files from multiple computers. If you are using the external drive, you will need to go and click on ":My Computer" and then find that drive, It will be called "E drive" or "F drive" in the list, and when you click on that drive you will have access to the entire drive, and you will need to navigate to those folders and files. You can re-share the drive when you get to the folder that you want by right clicking and choosing share.

Good Luck,

Mark

I can't connect to Edmini via LAN nor USB. LAN computer doesn't detect then I tried to check edmini from browser then I get this message /www/cgi-bin/public/sharelist: line 246: cannot create temp file...


Just contact www.lacie.com great support. there answer for my drive was to upgrade the drive version and to reboot the drive. Maybe the last thing is enough. For me it worked.

If necessary update driver http://www.lacie.com/nl/support/drivers/driver.htm?id=10156

Follow the procedure below to reset the Network Space to factory defaults:
  1. Move the power switch to the OFF position. Wait for the drive to shut down.
  2. Turn ON the drive.
  3. Within about 3 seconds, flip the switch OFF and On several times.
  4. Immediately turn it ON
If the light flashes quickly, the unit is resetting itself. Attempt to connect to the drive again after about 1 minute using the default username and password (by default, they are both admin.)

Where can I find a Mac driver from a Simpletech 250gb Marshmallow It has been formatted on a PC. I now want to reformat it and use it on my Powerbook G4 OS 10.4.7


You shouldn't need a special driver, but you do need to plug in the usb y cable to 2 usb ports. Normally 1 usb port doesn't supply enough power to make external USB drives go. That is why I prefer firewire, it supplies much more power at higher sustained rates. Once the drive is going just open the Disk Utility and format for your needs. If you need to share files with a PC, partition as MS-DOS (FAT). If you are sharing with a mac or not using the drive on other computers, format as extended with journaling.
