Your LaCie NAS features a printer server. Follow the directions below to connect your printer to the network via the LaCie NAS:
Please note that computer(s) on your network may require specific drivers to use the printer. See the user manual for your printer for details.
Connect an external hard drive to the LaCie NAS via either USB or eSATA, and it will be listed on this page. Once connected, an external hard drive acts as a share on your LaCie NAS. It will be listed at Dashboard > Shares and can be accessed using your operating system's file system (Explorer Window for Windows users, and Finder for Mac users). Please note that connected external hard drives are public shares on the network and their names cannot be changed.
To avoid damaging your external hard drive's file system, click the Eject button before disconnecting it from your LaCie NAS.
You can take an inventory of available multimedia files on your LaCie NAS and all connected external hard drives. See Reindex the Media Server for details.
