cheapest/best NAS drive for itunes/sonos
a contradiction i know!
i have recently converted to sonos and im loving the experience.
my itunes library (90g's worth) is all stored on an external seagate 500mb drive. connected to my samsung nc10 notebook.
the issue is, every thime i disconnect the hard drive, then plug it back in, sonos cant find the files, and i have to re-attatch the routed files. takes ages!
so, i was looking at nas drives. but looking at amazon, they all have eccellent, and terrible reliability reviews. buffalo, seagate, wd. all of them. can i back up all files (and its only music files) on my old seagate just incase the new drive fails?
also, as said, theres nothing wrong with my seagate. its 4 years old and functioning perfectly. i was in maplin, and im sure a guy pointed out a device that connects my router and existing drive that permanently connects it to the network?
help is happily received
