N800 + 250GB External Hard Drive

5 03 2008

I have just been able to connect my iomega 250GB Hard Drive to my N800.

I downloaded USB Control and then bought a USB Adaptor A(F)-A(F), Part No. L19BT, for £5.99 from Maplin

N800 + iomega 250GB HD

Connect all the cable together and run USB Control app and select HOST, then that’s it. I can now use the N800 File Manager to view all the contents of my external hard drive.

I’ve left the N800 running playing the Transformers movie using mplayer and its not jumped or stuttered in the last hour, so its a winner.

is your HDD is VFAT or else?
Mine is HFS+ and I can’t see it? I tough Linux could read HFS+ I guess not.
Any hint on how to read HFS+ on N800 with OS2008, thx

Any perticular HDD ? Do you need a HDD with separate power supply ? Or do the HDD get power from the USB ?

The hdd i used was mains powered, but i’ve used with 2 2gb memory sticks and they worked fine. I don’t think the n800 will give you the same power out that normal usb connections on a pc would, so i think it depends on the device used.
