if the former then try one - NASLite does not write anything to a drive unless you tell it to
Tony's right. I would do it - if the stuff is on NTFS disks - like this: buy one new drive, comparable in size to the biggest old disk you have, and install & format in your NASLite box. Then, assuming the drives with the video's are still inside a computer, copy the drive (or use GoodSync, a perfect companion) to that new drive. Then take out the copied drive, install & format, and copy/sync the second drive, and so forth...
I recently tried the Promise TX4302 with two eSATA ports, but the drive - in a eSATA hard drive dock - wasn't recognized. Though this card is supported by Linux 2.6, it could be that the driver isn't implemented in NASLite-2.
