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.
