    I have 2 questions.
    1) Is there alternate software to use with the My Book World Edition?

    2) Can I use this as just an External HDD with a USB cord?

    I was under the impression that this was a External HDD but when I got home, it says I have to use an Ethernet cord and a router to set this all up. I really don't want to spend anymore money on this. On the back it has a USB port, but I don't have a USB cord so I wanted to know if it even worked before I spent more money.

    Next time I should read the box better. :wtc:

    If you have a suitably fast network, then what you got is just as good as a USB drive, or even better. You won't need to move the drive from computer to computer.

    Anyway, yes, it stands to reason that the manufacturer didn't include a USB port just for sex appeal.
