w/ the documentation that came w/ the drive...is there any mention as to how machines access the drive? i'm assuming it's thru a network protocol.
Actually I have this(I can return this if there's something better you guys can recommend): RJ-Tech 3.5" LAN Hard Drive Enclosure HD9-U2LA
I haven't actually opened it yet (I haven't gotten the drive yet).
Right now I have a USB Enclosure that's connected through a Desktop PC and shared(so I can access it through my pc notebook wirelessly.)
I don't know if the RJ-Tech will work(or the windows shared drive), Im trying to setup the network so that I can have access to all my data through the network if/when the new intel pb/ibook will arrive, everthing will be ready.
I want a file system that can handle files > 4gb mainly because video files are like 12GB big(per file). My plan is edit the video using the PB and encode using the desktop PC(since I can leave it all night).
EDIT: I don't know anything about mac networking(since I havent used one for more than 30 secs) but I know how pc networking works, dunno if it's the same or not.(Im pretty sure there are similarities and small difference).
