XiMeta's NDAS NetDisk and Windows Vista Blue Screen

We installed XiMeta's 500 GB NetDisk to our wireless (Linksys) network. NetDisk works fine in our main computer that is connected with ethernet to the router and runs Windows XP Professional. It also runs fine in our laptop that is connected wirelessly to the network and runs also Windows XP Professional. Our problem is our second workstation that runs Windows Vista and is connected wirelessly (Linksys-G) to the network. Every attempt to mount the NetDisk to that computer with "Read-Write" rights gives us a BSoD (blue screen of death). Currently it is monted with "Read Only" rights and is pretty useless. We have so far installed, uninstalled and re-installed the software twice. XiMeta's support people are no longer responding to our emailing. Obviously it is taking too much of their time. Any help in this issue is highly appreciated.

    I have problems reading --I think it has to do with indexing-- the shared Ximeta NDAS hard drive via a wireless router from a laptop running Vista. It hangs up trying to compile a list of files (the green shading moves very very slowly and sometimes stops short of reaching the end, and occasionally multiple copies of folders instead of only one of each); and MS Word or Openoffice crash if I try to open or save a file from there. Sometimes it works fine --it seems to depend on whether other users are accessing it from other computers.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!!!

    I hav the same problem using Vista Ultimate 64-bit. and driver 3.30 form ximeta. Vista gives BSoD on random occasions. After removing the drivers no BSoD occured.

    I have the same problem when using the NDAS software on a Laptop running Vista. My XP Pro SP3 PC is working with NDAS with no issues. Random BSODs have forced me to remove the NDAS software from the Laptop. Now no BSODs and all is well. I hope that there will be an updated Vista driver soon which will resolve the problem and then I will re-install on the Laptop. I am using NDAS version 3.20.1528 on both PCs.

Same problem with windows xp sp3. my solution was to just throw the damn thing away, share a drive on my desktop machine and be done with it. cheaper, faster, doesn't crash.

Take a look at this: http://www.ximeta.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=13. The patch from Microsoft worked for me.

SOURCE: win 7 64 bit freeze

I have the same problem. I don't have the right solution but I discovered a workaround.
The problem occurs everytime when I install a windows 7 update.
My work around:

  1. When Windows determines an update I disable the NDAS service with msconfig
  2. The update is installed without the NDAS service operational.
  3. After update I enable the NDAS service with msconfig
  4. I restart my computer. Then it freezes.
  5. After a hard reset, the computer restarts in Safe modus. I restart my computer and my computer works, till the next windows 7 update. Then I start again van 1.
Very suboptimal, but it works.

Tip

The same for mine external HD


My hard drive was dead and wasn't recognized by the computer, it didn't even start, just a few clicking noises, which according to some of the experiences is the same as a DEAD Hardisk. Anyways, as I read that sometimes this happens as a result of a hit, well, I wacked my HD as a last hope for it to recover its "memory" (as in the movies) and believe me or not, it worked! I don't know if this might help yours, but it saved mine! 
The way I did it was like this: I started the pc and when the HD started to run and I heard a couple of clicks, I hit it against the table while in vertical position (assuming that the arm of the HD might slightly move better that way) one time, and then when the spinning and the first click was heard agin I hit again. After that I heard the typical searching sound of a HD, and you can imagine I started to pray that what I heard wasn't my anxiety sound (if it has any). Now I am a firm believer in the old trick of whacking the old TV to get the vital signal back! 
Good luck to you too!

Pc never see external HD


Is it that your PC doesn't reconize the ex. Hard drive? Or aryou unable to locate it once the HD is connected to your computer? Go to my computer and the external hard drive should be displayed below the other hard drives. If it is there, right click on it and rename it, like BOB's 500GB, or something. Also create a shortcut on your desktop to locate it easier next time.

Netdisk 160 gb ximeta won't get power


You may be right about a connection issue. But it's probably not a short. More likely, it's an open! Anyway, here's how to open the case:

There is a hole on each side of the NetDisk near the back. Face the back towards you, insert a blunt pencil tip or other blunt object able to fit in the hole on each side and press in. (Be gentle, these are plastic tabs on th inside)

At the same time, use your thumbs to slide the top half of the case away from you. (towards the front. Once you get ig toing, you can let go of the pencils and continue. forward with thte top of the case.
