I have a Netgear SC101 SAN storage device commonly known as 'The Toaster' on account that it looks like one! The software and drivers work fine in XP and in Vista, but not in Win7. SC101 software must be installed on every computer on the network that will access the unit. Note - Unsupported Operating Systems: Macintosh, UNIX, 64 Bit Operating Systems, Linux, etc. Hard drive compatibility: The newer 133 drives are recommended. All the ATA 6 drives are supported. ATA 5 drives are not supported.
- Re: Petition Netgear/Zetera for SC101 Win 7 Drivers? No reason why Netgear would want to support this product - they already have our money -- and apparently aren't worried about whether or not they will get any more in the future.
- NETGEAR SC101 WINDOWS 7 DRIVER FOR MAC DOWNLOAD - Message 4 of Message 3 of I'm running a Core i7 so suppose it does everything? Is there a way to get the SCT on both networks to be recognized? Netgear SC Storage drivers download.
- Re: SC101 with Windows 10 Is this capable with high speed internet? Im so worried being a older female,I bit off more than I can put together thanx a quick reply would be appreciated I.

Netgear Storage Central SC101 drivers are tiny programs that enable your Network Storage hardware to communicate with your operating system software. Maintaining updated Netgear Storage Central SC101 software prevents crashes and maximizes hardware and system performance. Using outdated or corrupt Netgear Storage Central SC101 drivers can cause system errors, crashes, and cause your computer or hardware to fail. Furthermore, installing the wrong Netgear drivers can make these problems even worse.
Recommendation: If you are inexperienced with updating Netgear device drivers manually, we highly recommend downloading the Netgear Storage Central SC101 Driver Utility. This tool will download and update the correct Netgear Storage Central SC101 driver versions automatically, protecting you against installing the wrong Storage Central SC101 drivers.
The SC101 was a home computer networkingstorage product manufactured and distributed by Netgear under the Storage Central brand from around 2005 through 2010. The devices shared data stored on one or two internal disks via Ethernet links.
The two models in the Storage Central line were the Netgear SC101 and SC101T.
The original SC101 model could hold one or two disks (sold separately) using Parallel ATA (known as 'IDE' at the time) and had a 100 Mbit/sec Ethernet over twisted pair interface.
The later Netgear SC101T model could hold one or two Serial ATA disks and had a Gigabit Ethernet interface.
The ZSAN technology was licensed in 2005 from Zetera Corporation.
Reviews praised the low price and ease of installation, but noted limited software support and passive cooling.
At least one reviewer encountered an incompatible disk drive.
By January 2010 the Storage Central series was replaced by Netgear storage products using the ReadyNAS name.
Netgear Sc101 Software
The SC101 provided a block-levelstorage area network (SAN) interface, as opposed to file-level network-attached storage (NAS). Thus, like any SAN device, specific drivers and software must be installed on any client PC wishing to access the device. Only the Microsoft Windows family of operating systems were supported.
There was discussion of a driver for Linux in 2008. An open source driver for Linux on Google Code used the network block device technology, but because this is a block level device, the OS is responsible for creating a filesystem. Consequently, a filesystem created by Linux will not be compatible with one created by Windows.
However, a 2006 post on kerneltrap.org suggested it may be possible to use NTFS-3g on Linux. If possible, this would allow access from both Windows and Linux machines, at the expense of losing features that the proprietary file system offers, such as sharing the device access across multiple machines, as well as mirroring support.
