I have a MyBookLiveDup connected to my router via USB as a network drive. I mostly access it from an iMac.
This unit has been a complete waste of my money over the last couple opf years I have had it. It has never worked satisfactorily and no support calls have produced any results.
Accessing it over an ethernet network is extremely slow, and navigation tends to eject the unit entirely. If I try to copy data to it, anything more than the smallest transfer will give Mac error -50 whatever that is and fail. Often folders will be copied, even file names but the files themselves will be empty. SOmetims some folders will transfer and some won’t.
I have just reinstalled WD Smartware but it is no better.
Unless someone can tell me what the problem is here I will have to advise everyone never to buy this product. It is awful.
