Also, did you check compatibility with Windows 7?
Check out the Windows 7 Compatibility site: (There you will find out about hardware and software compatibilty.) http://www.microsoft.com/windows/compatibility/en-us/de...
There is a pulldown from which you can choose "hardware" and "software".
Yes, I did check Windows 7 Compatibility site. The subject item was not listed. Several other NETGEAR NAS devices were listed. The unit Just arrived today. I will install it this afternoon. Documentation indicates it to be Vista compatible. I will also follow your recommedation to visit the Microsoft Tech site. Hope it will install and fuction well as expected.
Concerns resolved. I Installed the NETGEAR READYNAS RND2210-100NAS on a PC running Windows7 32 Bit OS. All is smooth for as hoped. I am still refining the software set up, in general all is fine. I read some critical pre purchase reviews that game me the impression to expect trouble. Hope all will continue after fine tuning the application. Possibly this product can be added to the Windoes7 32bit compatibility list.
