Attaching external storage to create a wireless NAS and using it for media-sharing as a DLNA server is one of the most popular DIY project for Raspberry Pi - the cheap mini-computer which has created a niche of it’s own.
Renowned storage solution provider Western Digital has now came up with a USB powered hard-disk, specially designed for efficient and low power usage requirement of the Raspberry Pi. The custom-engineered WD PiDrive offers 314GB of storage space and is compatible with WD PiDrive accessories available at the WD Store.
The inevitable happened and a CF card failed when I was filming a wedding. 3 companies told me the card had not recorded any info and that the footage was not recoverable. Someone mentioned R3 Data and I thought I’d give it one last attempt.
The service was second to none. They sent a courier to collect my card (the other companies had never physically seen my card) they kept me up to date with the process throughout and managed to return all the corrupt files intact. To be able to tell the bride all has been saved was a feeling I’ll never forget and I’ll happily use R3 again (thought hopefully not to soon).
