    Hi guys,

    How do you access idisk via a pc? Does the pc need any additional software to access an idisk?

    Thanks

    1) Open “Computer”
    2) Click on “Map Network Drive” at the top (under the path/location area)
    3) Select the drive letter you want it to be connected under.
    4) In the folder name entry area you want to enter:
    http://idisk.me.com/[username]
    IE: http://idisk.me.com/law1983
    4) Enable “Connect using different credentials”
    5) Click ‘OK’
    6) Enter your me username and password, enable saving of the information then proceed.
    You’re done! You should see the new network location inside of “Computer

    great help

    I think OOBE got it answered nicely. Obviously people aren't asking how to access iDisk through a browser.

    I agree with corbinag about oobe's post, but I couldn't connect with my PC at work following those steps exactly. After step 2, I had to click on "Sign up for online storage or connect to a network server" and connect using the "Add Network Place Wizard" that popped up.

    It's a shame that automatic syncing of user files isn't available on Windows systems. MobileMe has automatic syncing of documents built into iDisk, and there are great third party applications such as ChronoSync for OS X but nothing for Windows. The best solution is creating a network drive for your iDisk account. It's not much of a solution given that it's manual syncing.

    Windows users of MobileMe are left in the dark in a lot of area's. Sure you can host a website using FTP but without iWeb's WYSIWYG, seamless web publishing for the average consumer is a bit tricky. Syncing calendars with Office 2007 or 2010 is next to impossible.
