    was wondering if anyone has or is familiar with the MYBOOKWORLD network drive. I just bought it recently for one of my clients and personally i'm not too happy with it. i intentionally had bought this for my client in hopes that i can access it remotely but have found that i need software etc ... in order to use it. the software is a 30-trial for it's premium services that includes remote desktop connection but once the trial is over, i can still use it's main function which is to download files from the device. the software is a memory hog ... nuff said.. anyhow, any comments?

    You can access the device via a web browser for administration, and via SMB/CIFS for file access -- no other software is needed.

    MyBookWorld software is currently pretty lame, but the device otherwise seems to work OK. I use mine as a RAID1 mirrored backup to my RAID5 Snapserver.

    Officially, WD doesn't support the drive for MacOSX, but as long as you are comfortable without the Mionet client software, and SMB/CIFS access, it works fine. I have read rumors that MacOSX support will come eventually, but WD refuses to confirm or deny any such plans.

    I recently bought this drive and decided to use it just on my local network. Did not install the Mio software.
    But, when I type in \\mybookworld or \\IP address of the drive I get a message saying-"the network path couldnt be found".
    What am I doing wrong? Can you please let me know how I can map this drive?
    thanks
