    I have a question, and if anyone has an answer for it, I'd really appreciate it. I currently have my entire iTunes library on a network drive that is plugged into my router via network cable. My MacbookPro is connected via network cable to the same router, thus seeing the itunes library. easy. This is the drive I have:

    Now, my question is this. Since I've taken my MacbookPro to school with me, is there any way I can take my maxtor network drive with me so I can have my library at school? (ie: plugging the drive directly into the MBP via network cable or some other means) I use the school's wireless network, so my ethernet port is free on my MBP. What do you guys think? Thanks in advance.

    Yeah no problem, all you got to do is give the network drive a static ip and the computer a static ip and the networks have to be different.

    For example,

    School network is 192.168.1.0
    your static drive and laptop will need to be on 192.168.2.0

    Easy pie.

    Thanks! I may be PM'ing you in the not to distant future when I bring my drive to school and attempt it.
