I just got this mybook world edition 500gb. Works nicely so far. I didn't install a single software from the disc it came with. I research on the interent before I bought this and was forewarn about the issues the software creates.
Now.. I went directly into mybook and ran the inital setups. I created a folder and transfer all the backups I had, was roughly about 30gb.
The public folder that it came with is still intact.
So now I am ready to play around with this and put in the wonderful software that is available out there. Start off with testing for the new firmware download. Guess what, right after the url punch in as directed it went into share storage manager and in the general setup tab. But it says "there is no new firmware available". So what's going on? Did I do something? I haven't hack a thing yet.
Thanks in advance.
