  • Using a HDD as NAS thru connecting it via teh USB port

    Hi, I am wanting to connect my WD Mybook 1TB HDD into a NAS. I am hoping that this router with USD connections will have networking drivers that will do this. I am running the HDD to stream music to a USB connected high quality DAC which is in turn connected to my HIFI system. If this works I can then control my music player wirelessly from where ever I am working on my Laptop within my house. Will this work or will I need to get a dedicated NAS? Cheers Crannie
