"GNARLY! allows users to share files in any format including Word, Excel, graphics, Zips, and MP3s.
"Unlike Napster and iMesh that require a user to download
proprietary Windows software to exchange files, GNARLY! allows
users to search and retrieve files with GNARLY!, a Web browser,
or FTP client. GNARLY! must only be installed when users want
to share their own files with others.

“Virtual load-balancing” is an advanced feature found only in
GNARLY!. If 2 or more users offer an identical file (ie. the same
MP3 track) “round robin” routing insures that bandwidth is shared
equally among all GNARLY! nodes serving up that file.

Users can swap files via GNARLY! Index Servers (GIS) or in
user-created groups called “Cliques” which are made up of 2 or
more GNARLY! dudes.

Integrated chat rooms and firewall support round out the features

But the link doesn’t work.

This device doesn’t work correctly. I change the device by a new one: same problem. Impossible to write verbatim CD-R, fujifilm DVD+RW. Write is possible on verbatim DVD+RW but it is not readable after… No firmware available (1.01 is the latest, and I have it)

I have to agree with Jeremy, I was completely disappointed. It is a piece of fetal matter.
