Is it possible to use Arduino and a BT shield to store files on a external hard drive?
SD cards have an MCU that supports DOS FAT is why Arduino only uses DOS FAT with them.
Don't you need a USB HOST shield to run a HD fron an arduino ?Was it an ALTAIR 8800 ?

I did mention that putting a hard drive on an AVR does not make sense? It may be possible, but why bother? A server should have more RAM than the controller board!
