To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
You must have the Silex software running on the machine from which you want to access devices plugged into the DS-510. You can follow the instructions all day, and you won't get to where you need to be. You must search in google and find a link to the Silex website that contains the installation files you will need. Pitiful really that the instructions are worthless. However, once you get it going, the device is wonderful. I even found I can use an old powered USB hub (one old one wouldn't work, another did) and plug in additional thumb and hard drives into it, and they will all show up!
Unfortunately this does not allow multiple users to access the same usb device at once. Description was unclear on that to me. To be fair it does work. Install Silex software and one user can connect to each USB device at a time. Really not particularly beneficial in my case. Have to request access from other user who must allow access, disconnecting them. It does share the device, but not for simultaneous use.
