I ordered a western digital desktop element HDD, but the Online shop sent me a My Book Essential 1 TB with WD SmartWare Software.
I need to use it as a normal external HDD on my Router which has an USB Port.
So my Question is:
I it possible to use the My Book as a normal/simple external HDD to connect it directly to a TV, DVD, Router, anything with a USB Port?
Or is it only possible to connect the My Book Essential wit WD SmartWare to PCs with an operating system such Windows?
Thank you very much in advance.
