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 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.

Belkin N+N storage router doesn't work wirelessly


Hi, I had something like that with my Belkin Router N+N with USB F6D6230-4 V1, only I had a configuration wit a wired XP pc, Wireless XP and Wireless Vista. With both XP pc’s it was really plug and play, but with the Vista pc I had some problems to access the on the router connected USB drive. The Vista pc was connected to the network, and had Inet access. Other shared (network) drives were accessible on the Vista pc.

The first thing I tried was if I could access the drive trough its IP address, (\\routerIP in my case \\192.168.2.1), and I did get a question for a username and password. The only thing is that I tried all the regular names like Admin, Administrator, and so on, with my password but I did not get access.
On the internet there was no help to find for this model router on the Belkin websites (diverent country’s), the data on the Belkin websites is out of date, there is no support to find for new models. ………. So finely I did took the phone and did call the support desk…

Solution to my problem:
The problem seems to be in the Belkin storage manager program, that program works not correct under Vista. When I enter the routers IP and use the username “guest” without a password, it get access to it from my Vista pc. The follow thing I did was press the right mouse button on the drive, and press on “make connection” So..

\\RouterIP
Username : guest
Password : none


Hope, that this is also the solution to your problem.

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.

Power on NetDisk


try connecting the drive to a different system and see if that works.Incase it workd on another system than reinstall the USB drivers by going into the device manager.Also you could try different USB cords as there could be an issue with that as well.
