    Hello, I have been surfing this forum for some time now and learned a few things, but there are still a few things I am not very sure about.

    1) people say the hard drive has to be less than 2tb, does this mean 2tb hard drives won't work?
    2) does the external hard drive have to be externally powered?
    3) there are 3 usb ports in the back, can i plug in more than 1 hard drive, 2tb each? (got large bluray movie collection)
    4) is it true that if an external hard drive is plugged in, it won't be able to recognize another drive such as a flash drive?
    5) with the new update to android 3.2, is ntfs supported?
    6) do hdd docking stations work? (if the sony set top box can't have more than 1 external hard drive connected, swapping regular hdds from a docking station may solve this problem)

    please help me out. it would be much appreciated. :D

    1) The reason the HDD has to be 2 TB or less is because android can only see a fat 32 drive. The max size of a fat 32 is 2 TB. Unless you believe this guy ().

    2) No

    3) Yes you can plug in multiple ext hdd. But may get confusing.

    4) as far as I know, NO

    5)NO

    6) A docking station may work as long as the drives are fat32. But I would be VERY carful with a hot swap, the drive can become unreadable.

    Good Luck!!!
