    Bought this as it was a bargain, and i was originally going to store and back up diles etc. I was wondering tho, could i use this to host xbox games, or purely use it as a server???? Theres not much help with the instructions, and to be honest i have no idea. However, i know it has its own IP address and can be seen on my network, and also if i could use it as a server then i would need server 2003, i think.

    I don't really think it will do much with an xbox, but it would benefit you a lot if you have multiple computers throught your home. You'll have a central backup location which you could access from any computer or you could use a single computer. There are quite a few things you could do with it though.

    Most of these type of NAS's use a cut-down version of Linux plus Samba (and Apache to configure it).

    So any unit that can file-share to a Windows box will work, just as if it was a Windows server.

    If the Xbox can use such a server, then it can use this.
