    how to use NSLU2 formatted USB disks when the NSLU2 dosent work?

    do I have to buy a new NSLU2? or is there any tricks or software?

    does it work as it should in linux? if so.. then it's great.

    I believe you can read/write to/from the NSLU2 formatted USB disk on a linux box. I know that there are little utility programs for WinXP that will allow you to read the info from a NSLU2 formatted disk also.

    Yeah, I have successfully taken data off an NSLU2 formatted hard drive using fedora core (a linux distribution) without any problems. Plugged in the usb drive and it worked straight away.

    I then used Samba to share the files with a windows box. That took a bit longer but I got there in the end!

    Maybe try booting the system with a knoppix cd and see if you can mount your windows drive and access the usb drive and see if you could copy it over?
