    I want to buy an external hard drive that I can plug into my ethernet hub. I was looking at the WD My Book World Edition, but it states it works with windows but does not mention Mac. Has any used this successfully? Or has anyone got any suggestions? Would this be hard to setup for a Mac? I would like at least 1TB.

    The WD MyBook World is okay, you have to connect to it in Finder using goto server.
    LaCie's ethernet disk mini 1TB supports bonjour and a upnp media server so it shows up in Finder automatically, and you can use it without setup on your xbox360 or PS3 as well.

    i only use Western Digital stuff and what drichards said about having to use finder is incorrect as i have 2 WD My Book World Edition II (dual HDD so you can setup raid in both) and they have always appeared in my network/share sections

    Maybe it was my router or something then. I returned the world edition (not world ed 2, maybe thats different since then) for a studio edition.
