Can you have a single virtual 4Tb drive using USB port


#1

I have a 2 Tb network World Book drive

I have a 2Tb USB drive (also WD)

Can I connect the USB drive via the USB port on World Book and have it look like a continuous 4TB drive?

My porr old WOrld Book ahas runf out of space, we access as a media server from PS3, not via computer.

cheers in advance for any helkp you can offer

Yes you can connect it.

No, you will not see it as continuous 4TB drive.

You can see it as two separate folders.

OK - thanks for the clarification.

I can see the drive now as a folder share of the World Book Drive from PC

When I look at the World Book via a PS3, I cannot see the attached USB drive.

Does anyone know if it ispossible to see an attached drive via a PS3.
