does not find my NAS > useless - On my windows 7 laptop the buffalo app works but the apple version does not even recognize my NAS. I have now opted for manual IP address for NAS and mount it on my mac using the IP address instead of this useless app.

Works but power management not working - I have a MacMini that I run this app on and I have power management enabled on the LinkStation and it is not working when my MacMini or MBAir attempts to wakeup the LinkStation. I have set the LinkStation to AUTO but to no avail. I have to leave the LinkStation ON all the time to use it on my network.

Way out of date - NASNavigator2 is so far out of date that it is just short of useless. What you need to know is that sometimes is locates your Buffalo NAS drive, and sometimes it does not. When this happens, the only sure thing you can do is go to wherever you have your NAS drive and router located, turn the drive off then on, and hope that the network will recognize it. If you keep the drive set to “on” full-time rather than “auto-power,” you may find the drive on your desktop for days or even a week or more. But, then it will disappear again; and you will likely have to go through the above procedure again in order to have it show up on your network. Here is my best advice, if you can afford it. Buy yourself a new Synology NAS drive. Remove your drive(s) from your Buffalo drive, and install them in your new Synology drive. Synology seems almost made for Mac. Unlike Buffalo Tech Products, which, judging by its software and customer support, seems to be on the edge of going out of business, Synology seems to be a healthy company that makes good products and cares about customers. (I have no business or personal interest in Synology whatsoever.) Getting out of Buffalo Products and their neanderthal way of doing business seems to be the only way to escape these the above described problems.

Version 2.40
Review by NinjaZX7R

WAAAAY out-of-date by over three years! - This version is soo soo out-of-date and just disappoints that Apple isn’t ore “on it” to make sure that the apps in the APP STORE are up-to-date and supporting their community like Apple was known to and used to be famous for - in Steve Jobs’ days… However, it is obvious things now “slip” and nobody is accountable these days - a sad departure from the days of detail before he was gone. To make matters worse, I actually downloaded the more up-to-date version (i.e v2.73 vs this 2.40!) and it still doesn’t work with Mavericks OS X 10.9.2 even though it was scripted by BUFFALO apparently at the end of FEB 2014, just over a month ago… Very disappointing, to say the least...

Review by AppDever

Takes DAYS to mount - Yes I said days! If I lose connection to this NAS, it takes DAYS for it to ever mount again and I never know if it ever will again. It always says “The server may not exist or is unavailable at this time.” If you’re looking to download this, you must already own the NAS, and it’s too late.
