I would love to read the tutorials, but I am such a newbie at this that I don't understand what I need.
I have a Dell Inspiron laptop with Windows XP on it. I have a MyWorldBook II, the one with the blue rings that holds 500 gigs. I used to access it while it was plugged into the router, but that has been such trouble with at times my not being able to access my files at all. I read somewhere, but now I've forgotten where, that it is possible to set it up so that you don't have to use Mionet or the internet to access the files. I have copied all of my files to another drive so that it is empty—I remember reading that the process erases everything on the drive.
Is this possible, and if so, can anyone direct me to the appropriate tutorial page that I need? Sorry to be so dumb about this.
