I have a MyBook World 1TB (blue rings version) drive, that I have had for a year or so now. To increase the storage available, I purchased a MyBook Essential 2TB (White vertical lights + lock symbol version) drive and have plugged it into the USB port. I have the 2 following problems:
After plugging the 2TB Essential drive into the 1TB World drive via USB, the drive is recognised in the Shared Storage Manager software, but the Web interface becomes VERY VERY slow, or unresponsive. Pages take approx 30 seconds to load instead of the usual 2 or so.
The drive is pre-formatted NTFS. It seems, that for some reason, the World edition does not have the permission to write to the drive, only read. This is not very good, considering I am supposed to be able to use the USB port to extend the capacity of the drive with another WD drive.
Any and all help is appreciated!
