    Everything seems to be working well with Snow Leopard, however my iDisk is so slow it doesn't seem worth using anymore.
    Any idea what to do? Thanks

    iDisk has been slow as molasses since it was part of apple's iTools way back in the day. I've not noticed any further degradation mostly because I avoid using it within the finder. I use transmit to move files to and from the iDisk if I have a lot, or the web interface.

    what's really sad is that the web interface is so much more quicker then the finder interface :(

    My experience with iDisk and Snow Leopard: iDisk is unusable slow.
    It takes several minutes to open a folder with only 2 files of 100 kb!
    If this isn't fixed soon, I will cancel my Mobile Me account.

    I don't think so. I've actually found it to be pretty fast. It want from about 80 mph to about 10 mph with Snow Leopard. I don't even use it. I got rid of Mobile Me once because I didn't think I'd need a Sky Drive so to speak, but I found I missed the syncing of my emails, calendar events, etc, etc. Works very well.... but I'm tiring too of ATT. I have lots of dropped calls. My 2 yr obligation w ATT is about over. I'd love to see Apple link w Verizon.... soon. My son in law and daughter both use Blackberrys and love them. I was playing w my son in laws Blackberry this weekend. Very nice too for what I'd use it for.

    Mine too is major slow. Hopefully will be fixed soon.

    Mine is also very slow since the upgrade. It's slow enough that I am considering canceling.

    Hmm. I don't see any particular speed difference with SL - still useable for me.
