I hope you can suggest to HDD manufacturers to have the direct HDD to HDD file copy feature.
Apparently, there is no such feature yet. I have to rely on laptop to connect both 2 HDDs to copy my 2TB of files.
It is quite troublesome. :(
Would you recommend it? I like the ability to stream your own personal cloud movies on your iPhone/iPad. How does this work? Well, I hope.
I have a large library of Mp3s that I want to copy back to my MacBook Pro long enough to have iTunes Music Match scan them into my account. I left it running all night copying from the NAS220 to the Mac, and it only moved 3GB of data. It seems like I should be able to move data much faster. I have the computer plugged into the same router as the NAS220 and so no WiFi is involved.
Thinking of getting the WD MyBook just so my wife and I can both easily access photos, videos, music and don't have to keep them on 2 separate PCs. Are there better options?
I have enabled media access, shared media, uploaded pics, music and videos, but seems to be missing something.
Anyone have this issue where this disk constantly (with some breaks) clicks? Clicks that hard disks shouldn't do I think. Can I ignore this, or is this a fault with the disk?
i recently purchased this seagate freeagent extreme 500 gig ex. hard drive an am running vista about to upgrade to windows 7 and was wondering whether it is compatible with windows 7 thank you in advance.
I ended up researching the wrong product because of the wrong name on this page. There are two seagate products like this - the FreeAgent Theater HD Media Player and the FreeAgent Theater+ Media Player.... The Theater+ is a network media streamer like the Popcorn Hour boxes, whereas the Theater HD only reads media off of usb hard drives and doesn't have HDMI and only upscales up to 1080i. This page is talking about the Theater+ and the name should reflect that.....
Have you noticed any pesky files/formats that won't play? The website claims to have a ton of compatibility but I was curious how accurate this is before I get one.........
