I have a 3tb my book live NAS. It is useful as I can access it over my wifi etc. The problem is that when I need to copy late amounts of files it is extremely slow, even if hardwired.
The idea I had was that it would be good if I could add a port to it. possibly thunderbolt or even usb would be faster than ethernet. I would want it to plug directly into the hard drive bypassing the computer.
Sort of like launching a mac in target disk mode. That way when i need to coy files I can plug it in directly and finish it all quickly, then continue using it as a NAS drive.
I don't have much experience with electronics and actual hardware mods so if there is an option through plugin cable, that would be best, otherwise I will get a friend of mine to solder parts on etc.
