I don't think so. I wanted to do just that but found that the USB's on most (if not all) NAS drives are for plugging more stuff into (i.e. another drive/storage device or a printer). I did find one make that claimed to allow ethernet connection as well as USB for read/write but when I dug a bit deeper it turned out it was a partitioned drive with ethernet accessing one and usb accessing the other and it mirrored the partitions to give the impression of access via both methods. But if you do find one let me know!!I want to put a NAS drive next to my hummy !
Can I connect the nas drive to my network to transfer media files and then connect to humax via USB ?
That's still the wrong way round. Graham is looking for a drive that can be a NAS on an Ethernet and also a slave device on a USB connection. USB ports on NAS drives are master ports to connect an external drive or stick to.The Netgear NAS DUO can supposedly back up to attached USB storage so you may get that to work. I've not tried it though.
