I’m using the WD mybook live duo for almost one year.
Accessing the WD through my Windows 7 PC and Windows 7 laptop was and still is fast in comparison with my new Apple iMac 27-inch: 3,2-GHz 3,2-GHz quad-core Intel Core i5.
Every time I want to access a share on the WD it cost me about 30 till 50 seconds before showing it.
When I want to access a folder or document in a share it cost a lot of time again.
My IMac and WD are wired through 1 GB ethernet LAN ports on the same Airport Extreme.
Using a Windows 7 VMware on the same Imac, than I can access the shares in a few seconds.
So it can not be my ethernet connection.
Even my windows 7 laptop takes about 1 to 2 seconds for the same process over wifi.
The WD is configured as RAID 1 (stored 580 GB)
I’m really desperate about the slow working and think about replacing this WD NAS through an other one.
But that may not be the solution.
So I hope that there is someone who has a working solution for quick accessing the WD with the IMac.
