MAC OSX and working with files on a networked LaCie Ethernet Drive (2TB)
Posted on 2006-04-26
We purchased a 2TB LaCie ethernet drive about 5 months ago for our marketing department, specifically for our graphic designers who work off of MACS. They have had nothing but problems with them since day 1. They can see the shared drive on the LaCie but copying files to and from is a nightmare because the link will die most of the time during a transfer and they can't reconnect the session. If they finally do get reconnected, it's the same thing again and again. We know next to nothing about MACS, only basic support for them. We have returned the original LaCie drive and when we received the replacement, we set it up and configured it. It has Embedded Windows XP Pro by the way. All Windows PC's can see and work with files on the LaCie drive with "NO" apparent issues but it is the MACs that can't use it reliably and those are the guys we purchased it for. Can any of you guys help on this one? We have hit a brick wall and don't know what the problem could be. We hope that it's only a case of misconfiguration somewhere and that with some information from one of you experts, we can get the marketing guys some relief.
