just to add to this for people inm the future reading this, the pluscom nas i own is cloned by more than 1 company (i dont know which is the original but thats not important).
mine is flashed with icybox 903 firmware 1.66a 26/8/11 which i got from raidsonic.de they list it as IB903 or similar (as long as you get the 903 part your ok).
im not linking to it as there may be a newer version of firmware when you read this so the link would likely not work as they seem to remove the older firmware and just list the latest.

OK so just Bad NAS firmware, But you found a replacement that worked.

thanks for your help though it prompted me to research on my nas which took several days and several dissapointments!!! it was just pure luck that i found a newer firmware (id updated it about 6 months ago) i didnt expect to find a newer one as its oldish technology (but still for sale in a lot of places under different brands) but ill say 1 thing about it they did well with this enclosure considering it was cheap and any problems ive had have been solved relatively easy.
theres only 2 downsides to my nas drive 1 is i can only use fat32 (although i think i may be able to use a linux one but i dont want to mess with that) for it to work through router over network. i can use ntfs on there but it will only work by plugging it in to a pc via usb which totally defeats the purpose of a nas drive.
the other downslide is a 2tb limit for drive size but i think ill manage for a few years with the 1.5 i have now.
of course with fat32 it poses a problem because you can not put files over 4gb on there iun 1 single file. this doesnt pose much of a problem and if i need to store bigger files on there i use winrar to split a file into several rar files in order to make it fit so to speak

DLNA runs on Devices With NO HDD and less than 256MB off on board memory ( size of memory might have changed ewith the new standards. As posted before DLNA is not FTP.
When the DLNA client shuts down (built in to XMB.) The Buffer is erazed for other functions of the devices. (Games, Iplayer, BD player )
DLNA can run on Lower spec devices buy using this system.
FTP on my PC stores Files index for upto 10 devices in a tempary HDD buffer (it gets erased monthly) . DLNA can't allow that as there is no HDD use on devices. Only memory chips.
FTP for example COPIES the Hole streamed file to a buffer on HDD. DLNA stores nothing of the streamed file on HDD only the memory buffer . Zero HDD.
Are you using Wifi on PS3 for connection as thats a NO, NO, Realy. It can be done. but All PC media servers post on there sites to go HARDWIRED or expect performance problems. I would asume it would be posted on the servers site If it had not been a clone server.
DLNA is Not Bonjour/airplay. FTP or Samba that require HDD usage on the client..
It been said before on these forums. Research first...
Like the number of Folders Media servers will index.
Do you know that most that are DLNA standard, Won't see 9 folder layers deep.
I assume that this is again to reduce Memory usage on the Client. ( but in never asked them )
Guess how many folders deep Itunes stores most of the music on Mac ? ( Give you a clue More than 8 )
This is why you can choose where to start scans from on good servers as the Files are 9 Layers deep.
Linux ( kubuntu ) is only 3 lays deep.

so in a nutshell basically the combo of my ps3 and nas drive is crap really
its not doing folder layers all folders are on the same level
so am i right in saying unless i connect the drive via usb then its pretty useless because of the problems i get with it.?

The PS3 is doing what the Nas firmware and DLNA allow.
It sounds like the NAS was OLD even when you got it.
Yes Its a shame that your NAS Firmware don't even have features that make up for whats missing.
Mirroring the HDD with no other Features is poor buy Nas standards.
Does it have any other features that could redeam it.
Like Web site miiror for You tube
My videos uploaded to You tube as example.
( Im using the browser remote access as its easier to take photos than XMB )

no i dont think it has any of that.
ive read on the net in various places about putting some code on a file on the nas drive and i didnt take much notice because its over my head program code is.
i dont even know if it could be done on mine either as it was refering to other makes
