SC101 Netgear Storage Central
I just bought one because I also have a windows machine and my wife keeps lots of photos, etc (she's an archivist). What I did was create a new folder on the SC101 and shared that folder in windows. Then I went to linux and smbmounted the shared folder. (Actually, I cheated a little and used smb4k.) That seemed to work fine. Even plays my MP3s.
Hope this helps.
Netgear SC101 - A black spot to Linux
Netgear has done a wonderful job of supporting Linux - Most of the time. Unfortunately, the SC-101 Storage device is not one of those cases.
The protocol between the Windows PC and the SC-101 appears to based on industry standard SAN protocols, however, there see to be proprietary elements which make it impossible to use it with Linux.
Netgear has introduced a new product which uses industry standard iSCSI and 1 Gb/sec ethernet connections, and DOES support Linux. Unfortunately, these have not been released to retailers. Appearantly, Netgear has a surplus of SC-101 devices which they want to sell before releasing the new device?
Perhaps one of the reasons they have trouble selling the SC-101 - is because they screwed up completely on Linux support.
Perhaps Netgear will release a GPL firmware package which would allow the Linux community to create SC-101 interfaces that work with Linux.
