Is this drive unacceptably slow and unsuable or have I missed a trick?
I just bought a 2Tb RAID MyBook drive to centralise my ever gowing music collection (all MP3 format). The install software made recognition and mapping of the network drives very simple. I successfullly copied all my MP3 files into the preconfigured folder “Shared Music”. I then successfully recreated the Windows Media Player database with the new location of all my music and tried playing a tune. The delay in reading from the drive is atrocious. Just clicking on a music track takes ages to open it and then 5 seconds into the track it pauses, making the audio experience totally unacceptable.
My entite network it Cat 5 cabled with a gigabit switch, so it itsn’t my infrastructure that is the problem. Have I missed a trick in configuring the drive or is it a dud?
