Edge DiskGo 3.5" network harddrive

Q: Edge DiskGo 3.5" network harddrive

Recently my network storage device has stopped me from accessing folders with the exception of music. All my pictures for the last 11 years are on it and not backed up anywhere else. Cannot find manual and have done reset but cannot remember URL to setup or admin username and password. Doesn't seem to be online and Edge is giving me no help whatsoever.

Preferred Solution: Edge DiskGo 3.5" network harddrive

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Ouch if this is a NAS Device or has an IP you can use an app called FIng for your mobile device to find its ip so you can put it in the browser and get to the gui site. If you cant try fing you can use angry ip scanner for winwdows to find its ip.

If you want to try and recover files I would try recuva to obtain any data that has been lost. I am not sure if it is lost or just changed in the mapping.

As most guys will tell you here its very good idea to have three forms of back up. Local, external and online. If you don t know how to use fing or any of the software I duscusses please let me know. I will have links to the downloads below. Goodluck.

For Fing just type in Fing in either google play or Itunes.
For Recuva: http://www.piriform.com/recuva/download/standard

I have been trying for the past week to get my external drive to be seen by My Computer which is a WIN XP Pro SP I experienced the problem when I changed the IP scheme on my DSL Modem from a xx xx Diskgo drive. Gb. Edge 250 external xx scheme to a xx xx xx so my son s MAC Laptop could get connected I noticed my Diskgo started having problems when I would try to access my files Diskgo Edge external drive. 250 Gb. and I couldn t get to them So I did a reset Diskgo Edge external drive. 250 Gb. on the Diskgo HDD and it s never been Diskgo Edge external drive. 250 Gb. the same When I connect the Diskgo via Ethernet to to DSL modem like it s always been my Internet will drop and I have to reset the modem I have proven this several times to make sure it is being caused by the Diskgo HDD so I have since gone back on the DSL Modem to xx xx xx and disconnected the Ethernet cable and trying to connect the Diskgo drive via USB now Much to no avail I have searched the IE for assistance even from edgetechcorp com and it has been worthless Hope you can help Thank you nbsp

A:Diskgo Edge external drive. 250 Gb.

Depending on how the drive was configured, changing the IP scheme could cause issues. Having said that, after resetting the drive or connecting via USB should resolve the problem. As it hasn't, I'd suspect the drive is faulty.

Connecting by USB bypasses the network configuration, so the IP scheme of the network is irrelevant at this point. Is the drive properly recognized by the PC when connected by USB? If not, there isn't much you can do with it. You can try another reset. Otherwise, assuming it's no longer under warranty, you could remove the actual HDD from the enclosure and internally install the drive, use a USB adapter, or use another external enclosure to access the drive.

Hello everyone, I'm new on here so I apologize if someone has brought this up, but does Microsoft have any plans to update Edge to where it can "Save as" or simply "Open" a file rather than just downloading everything to the Downloads folder?

I am currently backing up weekly to a small external drive.. it is a small 20gigger. It has taken about 1 year or so to fill up. Now i am thinking long term.. i am considering purchasing a "network harddrive", one that is between 500gigz to 1tb. There is a smaller/more affordable Seagate external drive.. but it is not a "network harddrive".. it has 1.5tb.. versus a network drive that is about 2tb but it cost about 314.

My question is, thinking long term.. and considering the setup i have.. which is a regular PC acting as a server.. what should i get?

Your suggestions are appreciated

Hi folks. This is after doing an upgrade from Server 2008 to Server 2008 R2 mind you. Not sure if that matters.

I was having problems with RDPing to my Win7 clients so I checked that remote desktop was enabled. When doing so I saw that it informed me that I had to allow rdp access in the firewall which I know had been done before. After looking around I realized that my network profile had been changed to "Public". I also noticed that my active network shows as "unauthenticated". What does this mean and how can I fix this? How did this happen? Thanks.

How many DCs are there in the domain?
I suggest that you remove the Windows 7 computer from the AD, and exit the Windows 7 computer from domain. Then, re-join the computer to the domain. How does it work now?

I'm using Microsoft Edge on my Windows 10 machine, and after a while it'll just say "Do you want to close all tabs" as though someone has just pressed the close button. The thing is, the button hasn't been pressed (I'm not pressing it, there's something behind the scenes pressing it).
Now, I had recently had a virus, so in thinking the virus was to blame, I had run Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and Avast Anti-Virus to clear up the virus. They've been coming up clean, but it carried on. So I've reset Windows (keeping personal files intact), and this still hasn't fixed it. How can I stop this thing trying to close Microsoft Edge?

I have Win10 64-bit. When using Edge and opening a bunch of different tabs (in today's case, lots of searches on different sites for why this doesn't work) I click on the browser X in the top right corner. I get the box that asks CLOSE ALL or CANCEL. I do NOT have the ALWAYS CLOSE ALL button checked, nor do I want it. But, when I do choose CLOSE ALL, it sometimes will, and other times it does nothing. So, I click it again. Still nothing. I can't figure out what the difference can be. Is there a limit on how many tabs it will close? Or?

Hey,

So, I was reading about hotkeys and tried "win+plus button" that was supposed to zoom in. It opened up the magnifier application, but it also seems to have changed the taskbar 'edge.' What I mean by that is that when I maximize a window it now expands to the whole screen, going under the taskbar, whereas before the bottom of the maximized window would coincide with the top of the taskbar.

I tried removing the transparency, but that didn't fix it. I've scoured the internet for solutions, but it is difficult to weed out the normal mundane customizations for this specific issue.

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

I unlocked the taskbar, moved it to another edge, and moved it back. Once that was done it reset.

I'm sure that a lot of you guys heard about the study conducted over battery life on PCs that use different browsers contently. According to Microsoft, Edge outperformed all the other browsers in terms of battery conservation. Oracle's creators struck back with their own study saying that Oracle outperformed all the other browsers, including Edge. Who do you guys think is right? Never used Oracle to be honest, so I don't know.

This sort of intrusiveness is unwelcome. If there is a desire to push me into answering a marketing survey, there should be an opt-in toggle in the OS. An obvious one...during installation and unchanging (and available) afterwards.

It blows my mind (small explosion, I admit) that Microsoft Edge didn't come with a "Save As" feature when downloading something from the internet allowing us to change the name of the file as well as the location in which it is being saved. And I was hoping that with updates it would be added. However, I still don't see the feature, even after this November update.

Does anyone know if this will ever be added? I have been using Edge since it came out, but if this kind of boneheadedness continues, I will be switching back to IE.

I agree it is a backward step - I loved the ability to change the filename and the location where I wanted to store it.

Hi,

I just downloaded the newest updates for the free AVG anti-virus, etc. (7.1) and ran the scan for my harddrive. For some reason, in the second entry of the scan (which is for the boot sector of drive c, my harddrive), it says there was a reading error:

Object: Boot sector of disc C:
Result: Reading error
Status: Error

...however, there was never any error before I updated to 7.1 (though that could be a coincidence). Before, it would just say:

Object: Boot sector of disc C:
Result: Ok
Status: Quick checked

Why would this be? My computer boots up fine, so what does it mean that there's an error reading the boot sector? And is this something I can/should fix somehow?

I also have ZoneAlarm and am running Windows 98SE.

Else I haven't downloaded anything particular the last week. And nothing from untrusted websites; I'm normally pretty careful with downloading.

I purchased a new 1TB harddrive to host Windows 7. The installation was without any problem. Prior to installation, I removed all harddrives, including another 1TB data backup harddrive.

When I installed the second drive, with all my important backed up data, it comes identified by Windows 7 as drive D: System Reserved. There are no contents despite the properties indicating about 40% used space. Where did my data go? Please tell me it's not lost!! How can I get access to this drive??

A:2nd Installed Harddrive identified by Windows 7 as "System Reserved"

I'm assuming the old hard drive still has W7 installed on it?

If so the issue is that the old hard drive still has a Active partition on it. You should not have 2 Active partitions on one system, and that will caused these kinds of problems.

You can use a third party tool like Partition Wizard for bootable CD to remove the active flag from the old hard drive,
Free Partition Magic alternative, partition manager freeware, partition magic server, partition magic Windows 7 and free Partition Manager software for Windows 7/8/VISTA/XP/2000 and Windows Server 2003/2008/2000.

or you can use Diskpart
Partition - Mark as Inactive

Just to simplify things and avoid any problems you should disconnect all unnecessary drives while running Diskpart. You need to be able to select the correct drive from it's properties or partition sizes because normal drive identification will not be available.

Hello im unsure where to place this thread. " Disc boot failure, insert system disc and press enter " Is the error i get after i took out an IDE 80GB HDD. The primary boot drive is a OCZ vertex 2 120GB. Somehow my pc will not boot unless the 80GB HDD is in. Im unsure how they are related so could anyone help me out so that i dont need the 80GB HDD to boot up anymore.

A:Taking out IDE harddrive error "Disc boot failure, insert system..."

When you installed the OCZ drive, it sound like you had the 80gb HD connected. So the boot up files got written to the 80 gb HD. Do you have a Win7 install DVD ? If so run startup repair 3 times in a row with the 80gb disconnected.

I'm running Windows Vista and I am trying to run a seagate external harddrive. The device manager says its working properly, the drivers are up to date, etc. but when I go into my computer it is not showing up. The harddrive is unformatted- I use it on both Macs and PCs.

A:External Harddrive "Working Properly" but not in browser

If the hard drive is unformatted, then it wouldn't show up in my computer. You need to format the hard drive. Right click my computer and go to manage. In the Management console go to disk management and format your hard drive. If you say you use it on both macs and pcs, then it is formatted and you can try to assign it a drive letter. If it's formatted for Mac, you'll need to install MacDrive or something similar to access the files.

Hello. In about 6 months ago I encountered a major problem with my laptop (Fujitsu Siemens Amilo) as it would not start. The message I get is, in its entirety:

"For Realtek RT8101E 10/100 PCI-Express Ethernet Adapter v1.03 (070618)
PXE-E61: Media test failure, check cable

Operating System not found"

Is there a free solution solution to this? I have researched about this problem and found that you may need a new HDD? And IF I hand the ****er in to some Computer-fixy repair-thing and put in a new harddrive, will it work later? I mean, is it a 100 % certain that it is the HDD that's ****ed-up, getting a new will solve the problem? I'm a poor student I would go on to a school massacre rampage if I would have paid $100 and when I get home, it still shows the same ****.

Very much thanks in advance.

So my brother dropped his computer to the ground, and now it is not working properly.
I started windows in repair mode, but the computer freezes like this https://imgur.com/Pq1ncSs, but without the repair box.
I was wondering if it is possible to recover some of the files and stuff on the HD, when the computer is unable to boot.
I have taken out the harddrive from my brother's computer, and put it in to my own computer. When i did that, my own computer asked me if i wanted to run a disk-controll or something like that. After it finished, the computer has freezed like this: Imgur
The text at the bottom says: Controll of usn log complete. It has been like that for almost half an hour now, and i am not sure of what to do.
Answers are much appreciated.

A:Need help to recover files from a "dead" harddrive

Hello haakelv!

What kind of drive is it that your brother has? Brand and model?

The disk controller is plainly said a chip that controls a drive depending on its type – IDE, SCSI etc. It enables the CPU to “communicate” with the HDD.
The USN Journal is connected with the NTFS format and it maintains a record of changes which were made to the volume.

From what I understand by dropping his PC, your brother broke his hard drive's disk controller which nowadays is integrated in the hard drive itself, and evidently inserting the drive in to your system led to a USN Journal scan, which (if I am translating correctly) CHKDSK has checked the USN log, has repaired the USN Journal data flow and completed. But the system has hanged.

In my opinion the drive is too damaged to load, the disk controller is most likely broken, thus the drive can't communicate with the system on a healthy level.

You could plug the drive out, restart your system, plug in the drive again, go in to BIOS to make sure your own disk is at first booting position and see if you could load into your OS and open the drive through My Computer, but I doubt it would work.

You'll have to use a data recovery software or company if you need anything from the drive.

Good luck!

Does it matter if I need to hook up a SATA HD to a ULTRADMA?
Click to expand...

It should not matter.

It sounds like his hard drive crashed. (ie, the ticking noise from the system case.)
If thats the case, swap in a new HDD and install the OS.

If he needs to recover files from the hard drive, he will most likley need to take it to a
data recovery shop--which can get expensive.

After upgrading(?) to Windows 10, any link in an email opens in "Edge" instead of "Chrome" like it used to. I used to depend on "Chrome's" Autofill feature to fill out shipping info, etc. Does "Edge" have an Autofill feature hidden where I haven't been able to find it? Can I uninstall "Edge" and revert back to "Chrome"? Any other ideas of how I can get "Autofill"?

A:"Edge" Took My "Chrome"

When you open Chrome, does it ask whether you want it to be your default browser?  If so, then click OK/Yes to make it your default browser.If that does not work, go to Control Panel, then to Default Programs, and set Chrome to be the default browser; I believe the screen has an option specifically for email links but I haven't actually confirmed this.  Oh, and I don't know whether you can remove Edge but I suggest leaving Edge alone.  As stated above, you just need to get the defaults set right.

The 2.5" would take up less space on my desk but I'd go with the 3.5" if it stays cooler & lasts longer.
Either way it's going to be 7200 RPM with USB 3.0 and eSata. Does it really matter?

Wonder how long until MS updates USB 2.0 to 3.0 like they did with 1.1 to 2.0?
I just googled it and passing that info on. They will never have update from 2.0 - 3.0. To begin with, the 3.0 connectors are blue.
We'll be able to to plug any USB male into the computer USB 3.0 port but not vice versa. There is no way you will be able to plug a 3.0 connector into your peripheal device.

Would you use the browser identified as 'Microsoft Edge' if more features was added to it (such as Extensions...)

I personally would as I think it would be neat to give a Microsoft product a chance but honestly they aren't even giving the browser a good start because there just isn't anything useful on it as other large mainstream browsers.
 

A:Microsoft Edge: "Would" you use it?

I've been using it everyday as my daily browser ever since Windows 10 came out. I love the speed of it and lightness. It's way faster for Chrome than me and more lightweight on resources. I am patient and can wait for extension support. I don't miss Chrome at all. Chrome sucked up all my RAM and CPU anyways and was slower than Edge.

I'm currently typing this reply from Microsoft Edge!

I'm probably one of the few very people using it as their everyday browser...

A:Windows XP Home "My Network Places" refusing to show network computers

You need to look at the dependency list for each service. In the case of Computer Browser, it's Workstation and Server.

Since Workstation is failing, that's probably the place to start.

Do you have WKSSVC.DLL in C:\Windows\system32? That's the workstation service, and it appears to be the missing module. I'd first try copying that from the installation disk, if it's missing, and then register it too by:

Start, Run, regsvr32 wkssvc.dll

If you can't find the DLL, you can run sfc /scannow to restore missing files.

A shortcut may be to download the file from DLL Dump and register it as described above.

OK there is a catch here you know how the printers after 20 min of no using them is going in stand by mode ... for some reason the network card is going in standby mode for the printer also if you try to print over the network you gonna see that the printer is going back visible.
Solution: There was a option in Network Monitor Devices for don't going on that "standby mode" check and see if this will help you.

Hi,

I'm running a Win XP SP2 machine, a couple of days ago the Network Icons in the taskbar dissapeared. Also, I cannot get into Network Connections to check the connections. The folder is empty.

However, the all the connections work fine, I just cannot edit them or get any details... Cause they're nowhere to be found.

I browsed around the net and found that for this type of problems one needs to check if certain services such as "Network Connections" and "Telephony" are running. I checked, and they are all stuck in "Starting" status. And nothing I can get them to start.

I checked the chain of dependencies and the service they all depend on "Remote Procedure Call (RPC)" is started and running.

Any help would be greatly appreaciated, thanks guys!
 

A:Missing Network Icons, Network Connections Service stuck on "starting"

Symptom: Your network connections folder is empty.

Hold the Windows key and press R, then type CMD to open a command prompt:

In the command prompt window that opens, type type the following commands, follow each one with the Enter key:

regsvr32 netshell.dll
regsvr32 netcfgx.dll
regsvr32 netman.dll

I can access other networks and get online like that, but my network, even the local one, is busted. Please help!

A:"The settings saved on this computer for the network do not match the requirements of the network"

Hi Lori,

This issue usually occurs on wireless network connections. I suggest that you turn off any security feature of wireless. Please click Start->Control Panel, double-click Network Connections, right click on the wireless adapter and select Properties. From there choose Wireless Networks, click on your wireless network name and choose properties. Under Network Authentication choose Open to turn off the wireless security. Please try to connect.

If the issue persists, I suggest that you delete the connection, and recreate the wireless network connections. The following website may help you on creating the wireless connection.

http://www.vista4beginners.com/How-to-setup-a-wireless-connection

Important Note: Microsoft provides third-party contact information to help you find technical support. This contact information may change without notice. Microsoft does not guarantee the accuracy of this third-party contact information.

Is the issue resolved?

If the issue persists, I suggest that you reinstall the wireless adapter driver, and re-create the connection again.

Remove the adapter driver========================

1. Click Start. In the Start Search box type "devmgmt.msc" and press Enter.2. Expand "Network Adapters", double-click on the entry of the wireless network device.3. Click the tab "Driver", click "Uninstall".4. Click Start. In the Start Search box type "appwiz.cpl" and press Enter. 5. Remove the entries related to the wireless network adapter.

Then reinstall the driver with your driver CD. After installing, re-create the connection.

If the issue is not resolve by the above suggestions, please let me know if other computers can connect to this wireless network.

A:"add new bluetooth device" vs "join personal area network"

Most likely a bug with your Windows phone, not Windows 10. Microsoft is not supporting the Lumia line that well. It does help when you ask for help, that you also post the model of the phone, what OS version it is running, along with screenshots or logs of what is wrong.

When I use the netsh command to set and start the "Hosted Network", I can set the settings fine, but starting the hosted network yields "The hosted network couldn't be started. The group or resource is not in the correct state to perform the requested operation.". I have already tried the fix where you enable the "Virtual Adapter" device in device manager, but it did not change anything.
On the flip side, using the "Mobile Hotspot" option inside of the settings starts fine and works correctly.

Hello Jayrrus, and welcome to Vista Forums.

I would recommend that you use Microsoft Standalone System Sweeper to scan your system with at boot to help make sure that your system is malware free first.

Afterwards, you might see if you may be able to do a system restore at boot using a restore point dated before you had these issues to see if that may be able to fix them.

Hope this helps,

I have a Dell 1710n printer in a school environment. We have Windows XP. When we try to print reports from a web based program this printer cuts off the right side about an 1/8". If I print to a Dell 5200n printer it doesn't cut it off. I have tried printing these reports to this printer from 2 other pc's and it does the same thing so I know it isn't the computer. I have looked on Dells Support site for a firmware update of some kind and there isn't one for this. I am really at a loss as to what I should do. They said they used this printer last year to print these reports with no problem. Any help or suggestions would be appreciated.

P.S. The program actually puts the report in a pdf format if that helps.

A:"The network did not assign a network address to the computer" error

Disable encryption and MAC Address filtering on the router and try to connect. Assuming success you can probably re-enable encryption and reconnect.

If unsuccessful make sure you have the latest driver for the wireless adapter. Make sure you have the latest firmware for the router; then reset the router to factory default settings and reconfigure it.

Can anyone help me with this please?

Hello Jorge, This is a problem only when the profile is set to public? You might go into network and sharing center>advanced sharing settings and change those to discover the network and turn on file/printer sharing

I ve spent the last two or so weeks attempting to fix this problem I ll explain it to the best of my ability If you have any questions I ll be happy to help you help me My problem started about days ago Prior to this date my service would drop not predictably but enough "Network or Cable (not) no unplugged" is "Limited connectivity" and that I can remember it Comcast has insisted there is no problem and no other computers on the network experienced this problem so I assumed it was something local I never made "Network Cable is (not) unplugged" and "Limited or no connectivity" a real attempt to fix "Network Cable is (not) unplugged" and "Limited or no connectivity" it however because it wasn t a big enough problem to bother me A simple reboot would fix the problem The error would occur most often when I was downloading media and running another program that was accessing the internet The problem would still occur without both happening at the same time however so I assumed that it was a coincidence days ago I was on the internet browsing I left for an hour and upon my return found the internet was disconnected I rebooted and instead of connecting an error came up quot Limited or no connectivity quot After several more restarts I was connected but it dropped out again with the same error I connected looked my Wireless card up and it connected to the network After several days the wireless card came up with the same error In addition the error was still happening with the LAN connection and it would say the network cable is unplugged when it is clearly plugged in I would have assumed it was an error with the router but three other laptops were able to connect to the network as well as my desktop The LAN cable refuses to connect at all and when it says it is connected I still receive the quot Limited or no connectivity error quot The wireless card will connect but often goes out with the same error Right now I m using the Wireless card Doing an IPConfig the Wireless adapter is receiving all settings The LAN connection doesn t see DHCP enabled although it is I m unsure if this is an error or it doesn t see DHCP because it doesn t see the cable as connected right now it is disabled and won t re-enable because it thinks the cable is unplugged I ve looked through many different webpages and attempted the fixes suggested but nothing has helped The cable is still functional and I changed no settings between the time that it worked and suddenly stopped working I m going to retest this by plugging the the cable directly into the modem and seeing what happens I don t believe the NIC has gone bad but in either case I am unsure why this would affect the wireless card I ve disabled any firewalls incase that was causing the issue but it didn t help Whenever the wireless card isn t working I ve noticed it still receives the signel strength as I ve also noted that whenever I get the quot Limited or no connectivity error quot the Wireless card nor the LAN connection is getting an IP from the router This lead me to believe something was conflicting with my computer and the router but I am confused as to why it would only affect the wireless card sometimes I m using an Inspiron running WinXP using Comcast High Speed Internet with a Linksys router and Linksys Wireless G card My onboard card is a Broadcom x Integrated Controller I have my computer docked in a docking station with the LAN connection going through the hub Even connected directly into the computer I still receive the quot Limited or no connectivity error quot I ve contacted Comcast to see if they made any changes that may have only affected my computer After I got through the bull of a recording asking me questions and got to a real person I was told everything was quot green across the board quot When I questioned him further he insisted it was the router even if the router worked for me and is still working for the other comp...

Hey, I am really hoping someone can help me solve this problem, it's driving me up the wall!
When I started using my computer this morning everything was fine, and then "no network access" kept appearing, along with "limited connection/connectivity". I would troubleshoot the problem, but then at the end of the troubleshoot it would freeze, and my screen went black, so I had to turn my computer off and then on again. This problem has persisted throughout the day, I've googled it but nothing really the same as this has turned up .. if someone could please please help me, I'd really appreciate it!

A:"No Network Access" and "Limited Connection/Connectivity" ?

Hi Caoimhe123

My name is Riyazuddin and I work for the Social Media and Community Team at Dell

If its a wired connection - I suggest you to try using a different ethernet cable and check,
If its a wireless connection - Try to get to the router as close as possible and check,

Please specify the type of connection, model of the router, OS and the wireless card your using and reply back

It means what it exactly states. No SSID assigned to it, it will always state that. There is nothing that you need to know about it, because most times you are picking up the utility systems for remote utility meters.

Hi,

I have a LaCie 2big Network (2-disk RAID). I have attatched this to my Netgear router (cheap one) DHCP assigned it an IP address which i then made static.

My question is, i would like my friends/family to view the info stores on the drive. How would i do this?

I've looked into FTP but that the only thing i can find. I need something with a GUI or something that can be easy to use.

I was thinking abt getting a Westen Digital drive (myBook drive)

Any suggestions?

Ta

A:Lacie Network HardDrive

You want your friends/family to be able to view the files? sounds like you want them to be able to access your files over the internet (e.g. not on your local network).

This is going to be pretty involved, so I hope you're pretty saavy

Here's what I would do

1.) Buy a domain name from a cheap vendor (godaddy isn't a bad option here)
2.) Register for a custom DNS service from dyndns.com. This allows your non static public IP to be routable externally to your home network. E.g. when your ISP changes your public IP, dyndns will switch the DNS entries to point to your new IP. This makes it "look" like your dynamic IP is actually static from the outside world
3.) Setup a web server in your home network. This is actually easier than it sounds. If you have a windows xp, windows 2003, windows vista or windows 2008 box- it should be pretty straight forward. You'll want to go to control panel -> programs and features -> installed components and check "Internet information services". This will install the appropriate IIS software on your computer
4.) Setup a new website in IIS and indicate that the content comes from a network share. This network share will point at your LaCie Network Harddrive
