This is my first post here. I tried searching for an answer but can't seem to find one. I purchased a 1TB Western Elements HD the other day and formatted it to work on my Mac. I then dumped all of my photos and music on it. Now I want to reload those photos into iPhoto or Picasa, but it's saying I need MobileMe. Since when do I need to pay $99 a year to access a local drive? I'm not looking to sync to my iPod or phone or anything. I just want to free up my internal HD a bit because my Mac is getting sluggish. I'm on an iMac purchased in 2009 and running Snow Leopard. Also, my Mac named my disk "iDisk" and wanted to back things up to it. I was a Mac user for years, but had to switch to PC when I worked as a Realtor because of the MLS program. I hated PCs and came back to Mac in '09, so I'm not on the "up and up" on new stuff like MobileMe. What can I do? I just want to access my files on this USB drive.
