    I use ExFAT since I mainly deal with Windows PCs and Macs. For Linux, would installing the two packages below be an option?

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install exfat-fuse exfat-utils
    Btw, if you also own an external Seagate drive you can download a free copy of Paragon's NTFS for Mac driver.

    I have the 200 and 300, they are great.
    It is the mounting of .iso that I especially like.
    It so beats carrying a load of discs around.

    I was not aware of the 400 though. Are there may differences to the 300 other than the buttons?

    From what I've read and others have said, essentially the difference is the encryption element, which is why you have the buttons to enter your passcode and such.

    Heh, I just went and read the full thread, and realised I didn't really need to ask that question.

    Thanks though!

    I've got a VE200, and as far as I know, the ISO mount function only works if the drive is formatted FAT32.

    Not sure if that applies to the other models?

    Ta. The 400 has alternative firmware you can download for either NTFS or FAT/exFAT so will work with either set.

    All of Zalman's enclosures support ExFAT and NTFS (in addition to FAT32) if you install the appropriate firmware.

    I've had mine for a while and I haven't updated any firmware, so that's probably why mine likes on FAT32.

    Thanks to the other posters, I'll have a look at the updated firmware!

    So, I've been road testing this thing today (thorn a few images in the _ISO folder etc) however, it doesn't want to boot from the selected image and the machines I'm testing on just skip straight to their on board HDD boot. I'm bringing up the boot menu on the machine and pointing it at the ZALMAN Virtual CD, but it just isn't having it.

    Any suggestions good people? It's formatted in exFAT, which as far as I know shouldn't be causing the issue as the formatting shouldn't matter given it's being processed by the Zalman as an image as far as I know.

    Thanks
    Andy

    +1 for the ve300 I use it everyday for builds and what not. Clonezilla works a treat on it too.

    You can see what I meant about it not being logical now.
