    Default WiFi drives

    Does anyone know if WiFi drives (such as this, available in 16/32/64GB flavors, or this 500GB beast, all compatible with Android OS) will work with a non-rooted N7?

    Should work just fine without root.

    I agree!

    I'm just hoping someone out there might have tried it and be able to confirm.

    I have both of the above drives (Seagate GoFlex Satellite 500GB and Kingston Wi-Drive 32GB) and they work great with the N7 without root. Keep in mind that they use a browser-type file management or manufacturer app. That said, the Seagate can be hacked to function as a Samba drive -- acting as a drive letter on a computer -- without any need for a browser or file management software.

    One important feature I hope is not overlooked is that the Kingston Wi-Drive allows for internet access along with access to the drive.

    Do the SAMBAs run on Blue tooth?? Amazon.com: Acomdata Samba USB 2.0 3.5-Inch IDE/SATA Hard Drive Enclosure SMBXXXU2E-BLK (Black): Electronics

    What you linked is just an enclosure. So no the case alone without a drive does not use Bluetooth.

    Samba is a free software re-implementation of the SMB/CIFS networking protocol
