I've got a MyBook World Edition, 1TB blue rings, and a Mac Mini with Mac os X 10.5.
I want to use the MyBook as an external hard drive on my Mac Mini. When I plug the MyBook directly to the Mac Mini via the Ethernet cable, it works. I can both read and write files to the MyBook hard drive. However, I would like it to be faster. I would like to be able to live stream movies from the MyBook to the Mac Mini. I can do this when I use the Ethernet cable between my Mac Mini and my Time Capsule - but not when I do it between the MyBook and the MacMini. It seems that the reading/writing between the MacMini and the MyBook is too slow.
What can I do in order to make it faster?
Would it help to format the MyBook to another file system - and how would I do that, if that's a possibility?
