It doesn’t matter how great the concept, if it doesn’t work, it’s worthless. I’ve now spent HOURS trying to get this thing to work and I’m about ready to give up. Disconnects occur whether the ethernet cable is connected to the wireless router, or directly to the computer.
It shouldn’t be this difficult. I shouldn’t have to hack into the drive to get it to work.
I’d be better off just carting an external drive around with me. It seems to lose the connection when there are large file transfers going on. It’s anybody’s guess whether or not there would be problems with single or smaller-volume transfers, since they aren’t likely to happen if I can’t get the data on it in the first place.
Very frustrating. I strongly suspect this will be reset to factory and go back to Best Buy.
