i’m running since about 5 years "WD My cloud 2TB. Now i want to connect USB device(s) to my NAS to increase capacity: need some few GB for my home network. A USB stick with 32 GB and a USB drive with 1GB (2,5 or 3,5 inch, both connected via USB hub with “My cloud”) would be enough of extra storage for a while…
is it possible to use any USB device (USB storage device) together with “WD my cloud”? Or is there a compatibility list for “WD my cloud” with compatible USB devices ? I have several USB storage devices (old and brand new) and i don’t exactly know which one i can use with “WD my cloud”.
*) WD elements (1TB and 2TB, 3,5 inch, with USB 2.0 only, 7 years old)
*) USB hubs (with own/separate power supply, 5 years old, USB 3.0)
*) some brand new USB 3.0 sticks (max. 32 GB)
*) brand new 2,5 inch HDDs (USB 3.0, 1TB / 2TB)
…so i’m not sure if i can simply use any usb storage (old and brand new) without issues: maybe there are
restrictions (compatibility list / technical restrictions ) that i should know before using extarnal USB devices with “WD my cloud”…
thx a lot !
