Before creating a NAS volume for your Buffalo TeraStation NAS, you must install the NAS.

Before you begin

Designate a dedicated NAS for Stratocast™—one that is used solely to store your video recordings. Having a dedicated NAS ensures that you get accurate storage estimates of the hard disk on your NAS, and that you do not risk deleting other personal files that are not related to Stratocast™.

What you should know

Although you can add whichever Buffalo NAS you want, only the TS5200 has been tested and is fully supported by Stratocast™. For the latest information about your Buffalo NAS, refer to the Buffalo website and the product documentation that is provided with your device.


  1. Power on the TeraStation NAS.
    After a few minutes, the IP address of the NAS appears onscreen.
  2. From a browser, enter the IP address to access web page of the TeraStation NAS.
  3. Enter a new password for your TeraStation NAS. The password does not have to be the same password that you give your NAS when adding it to Stratocast™, but it is recommended to use the same one in both places.
