Windows 98 and NAS (network attached storage)

Recommended Posts

I'm thinking of getting a NAS box.  Anyone have any first-hand experience with file-access between a NAS and Win-98?  Does it work?  No problem with any NAS?  Or maybe just some?

I don't see why you wouldn't be able to expose a Samba share from your NAS that your Windows 98 computer could see.

I have a Cisco Linksys 2 drive bay with latest firmware. No trouble with both the media server and direct IP access on WinME. I am using one 2TB drive. Capacity and free space indication when mapped as a drive are very close to what Win7 indicates. ME Capacity 1.79 TB; Free 2.58 GB; Win7 Capacity 1.81 TB; Free 2.65GB. Used flash vs 9 for original firmware now uses flash 10 or better when using a browser and viewing the local IP address (media server).
