may be I did a wrong purchase but the 2 TB capacity attracted me a lot at that time….
Thinking that everything was easy to be used, I installed the WDG2NC20000 in RAID 1 on my wi-fi router (I'm the only user of the lan) but I never liked it after the installation (slow speed, some time a question mark appears on the desktop icon and Mionet that I don't need at all than to use the HDD).
So I was thinking, can I attach the WDG2NC20000 directly to my notebook via ethernet connection ? Probably yes but doing it I can NOT see the HDD (question mark on the desktop icon and Mionet saying that can not find it). How to do it ? Any setup is needed into the HDD ?
I've Windows XP
I don't need to be into a lan
I don't need to share anything
I don't need remote access
I don't want Mionet (if possible)
I just simply want the notebook directly connected to the WDG2NC20000 via ethernet to see it as a simple external HD (E:, F:, K: or whatever must be….)
I just want it as a backup for my huge video editing works (storage of files and nothing more)
I just want the easiest and common thing to be installed since external Hard Disk Drive exist
Thanks a lot for helping in this matter that's making me crazy.
