    I bought a 1TB White Light NAS to centralise my iTunes and Iphoto Library, mainly just get the suff off my iMac 24" March 2009 hard drive and for future sharing capabilities. No problem at all coping iTunes and iPhoto files to the shared folders on the NAS and iTunes and iPhoto work just fine with the data on the NAS. My issue is, for some reason if i try and copy the data back to my mac (so i can drop onto a regular external drive for backup) i keep getting errors and the copy fails. For instance, i will be copying my iTines library (about 10GB) and it will fail on a random folder with an error of "cannot copy folder X, as folder X already exists) which it obviously doesn't. Then if i try to copy the iPhoto library back to my iMac i get a permission error and it fails. I'm not sure if i have a duff My Book or this is an issue inherent with copying back from a NAS drive. Anyone's insight would be very much appreciated.

    Any ideas gents? i also found that trying to copy my iPhoto library from the NAS to my iMac can corrupt it (have backup, so no big deal)..... starting to think this may be a snow leopard specific problem from hunting around the forums but would love to hear from anyone with a mybook world and has the same problem!
