My MBL will not connect to the network and also will not connect via ethernet cable to my laptop, nor my desktop. When plugged in hear the HD spin up and the LED goes from blue to yellow so I am assuming all is well with the drive. I plan on removing the drive from the MBL case and connecting it to my laptop via a IDE/SATA to USB cable. I believe the MBL has either an ext3 or ext4 files system and am looking for a program to mount this drive and make it readable on my Winows 7 laptop. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
