Before connecting a USB device to your LinkStation, first connect it directly to your computer so that the driver is installed.

Note:
・For a list of compatible USB devices that can be connected with the Network-USB server, see www.buffalotech.com.
・While the Network-USB server is enabled, the following devices and functions will not be able to use the USB port:
- USB hard drives
- Print server
- DirectCopy
・LS-XHL, LS-CHL, LS-WXL, and LS-WSXL LinkStation models do not support the Network-USB server.
・Maximum number of connectable USB devices: 15 (not including one USB hub).
The number of connectable devices may vary depending on the customer's operating environment.
・If a device is recognized as multiple USB devices, the maximum number of connectable devices is reduced.
・Only one USB hub can be connected.
